Upcycled Container Gardens, Planters and Vases: Recycle old paint cans or buy metal paint cans at hardware stores and home centers.

Cover with a coat of polyurethane to stop the cans from rusting, or leave them untreated and enjoy the rusty, rustic look that develops within a few months. Design by Nancy Ondra From DIYnetwork.com
