Flower Cans

A few years ago, I worked at a job where we had peanuts delivered on a regular basis for a short time. Thanks Bruce! What I saw was an opportunity for a project. I was originally thinking stamp project but after hanging out on Pinterest, I found another use for the cans. The post I found was just a link to a flicker photo by "rosping" so I can't tell you who originated the idea. The larger ones anyway. Yes, I have a bunch more smaller ones that I can still use for a stamp project/camp. These peanuts are awesome by the way.

Here is the large tin/can on the painting stump before and after I primed it. This is a spray paint project.

Here are 10 of the 12 cans that I spray painted. I'm still deciding on the color of the last 2 cans. Possibly white.

This is all still a work in progress. I'm waiting on Nutrimulch to finish my garden. Every time I go to IFA, they're out. I only want one bag! I'm also waiting on a fence. My brother is building me one however, there is another project that trumped this one. I will most likely be hanging these colorful cans on the outside of the garden fence. That is my plan.
