recycled can centerpiece

Earth month is almost here, and I am looking for fun recycled craft ideas to share with you. I absolutely love these beautiful table centerpieces found at Bump Smitten — they’re so simple and pretty, and made with recycled cans and your leftover scrapbook or wrapping paper. These would be great for teacher gifts, shower favors, or just a pretty way to bring some spring into your home. Click the photo to go to the post where I found this example picture, but follow this link to get the instructions for this project: [how to make recycled can centerpieces]

The party planner who made these wrote: For the main center pieces, I used old cans and food containers and covered them with decorative paper. I planted plants in the containers, each guest was able to choose a plant bring home. I loved the different sizes of the cans.

Project Estimate:

  • Scrapbook paper, on hand or $.50 each
  • Decorative ribbon, on hand or $1
  • Spray Adhesive, such as Aleene’s Tacky Spray, about $7, or on hand
  • Empty cans, on hand
