My inspiration for this craft came from here.
I did mine a little differently and also used mine to plant a few herbs for my kitchen! I used hemp rope from Walmart and that was the most expensive item purchased. The herbs were $2 and the tins were just old bean and tomato cans that were going to be recycled anyways.
First I painted the top portion with some acrylic paints then I started at the bottom of the can with my rope and worked my way to the painted area using regular tacky glue.
I know my herbs look a little funny, the parsley I've had for a while and the basil I just bought so it's flourishing and making the parsley look very sad!
But, what a great way to re-purpose don't you think?
