I thought, I pop in today, to show you my Rustic coffee tin planter. A super easy, but quite decorative little project. Then, I think about it, and all of my projects and crafts are super easy …. but this one probably on the most~easiest~ever side.
Any way, I had this big coffee tin. Here in Europe, I’ve never seen these huge coffee tins. Mine is still from Canada, yep, everything is bigger in Canada! Well, I brought it empty, I always had craft stuff stored in it…cause it’s so big! Then, when I re~organized my desk, it re~surfaced from all that crazyness of a desk, but I didn’t need it any more for storage.
I really thought, that I had taken a before pic of the tin, but I didn’t. So this one here is a similar one…but you get the idea, right?
Then, the other day I was in a pre~spring mood, really bad, and I went off to get some green life for my living room… I bought succulents and aloe plants to decorate with. I just love aloe, because you can literally go and cut off a little bit and put it on your face, it’s so good! And when I looked at the aloe and then at the coffee tin, I knew, they were meant to be!
I roughly painted the tin with white paint, then wrapped a little bit of twine around the middle, that was all. Then planted the aloe inside.
Check these two out!
I put the aloe with two other green plants in a crate that I used once as a Centerpiece but now I placed it on a chair and I love how fresh it looks! Aloe needs very little water, so there’s a great chance this one will survive!!! I hope so, cause I really like the way it looks!
