Whenever I don’t feel like rummaging through my junk shop (which would be a workshop if it wasn’t so filled with junk) to look for something to repurpose into a new project, I turn to the one thing that I always have a good supply of …

TIN CANS! 🙂

Using tin cans ranks as one of my favorite repurposing projects because there’s no end of ideas to use them for, and every week I add at least one or two more to my stash, which means I’m always looking for ways to repurpose them.

These cans can be used as planters or as rustic storage containers.  They make nice gifts too!

How to Make Jute Rope Tin Can Succulent Planters

What You’ll Need:

Clean, empty tin cans

Jute cord

Glue gun (this is the cordless one I want to get)

Glue sticks

Barn wood scrapbook paper (optional)

Directions:

  1.  Make sure the can is clean and dry before you begin.
  2. Put a small dab of hot glue almost at the bottom of the can and attach the jute cord.
  3. Add another bead of hot glue all the way around the bottom edge of the can and begin wrapping the twine around it.

4.  Work quickly so that the glue doesn’t harden before the twine is completely attached.

While the glue is hot, carefully push the cord close to the first row so as little glue as possible shows between each row.

5.  Continue working your way up and around the can until you reach the top.

6.  Once you get close to the top, bend the cord upward so the next few rows cover the bend.

7.  Once you reach the top, add another small dot of glue to attach the end of the cord.

Here’s another variation.

8.  I wrapped two cans completely with cord and wrapped the third with scrapbook paper that looks like wood, then wrapped cord around just the base to hide the paper edge.  I used adhesive squares to attach the paper to the can.

Wrapping and gluing the cord does take some patience, but it’s an easy project and a great way to use those cans.

I put faux succulents in mine so I wouldn’t have to worry about drainage, but you could easily plant real ones.

Use one tin can succulent planter by itself, or group them together for a beautiful table centerpiece.
