I have a thing for seeing value in stuff…all kinds of stuff. You know…like old nasty china cabinets on the side of the road…with a “FREE” sign on it. It was dark, ugly and totally 80′s. I knew that if I could just get my hands on it…and convince my husband to pick it up for me in his truck…there was something beautiful under all that nastiness. I slapped some white paint on it, put a clothes rod inside and boom…it was a new closet for  my baby (who is 9 now!!). We still have this piece and are always get asked where we got it! Uh….on the side of the road??? :)

Anyway!! Back to DIY Stuff! I love the idea of saving your tin cans (from taco soup I have about 6 cans!) and then turning them into something beautiful…for your wedding or for your house!

Here are some of my very favorite Tin Can DIY Wedding Ideas that I found on Pinterest!

1. DIY Hanging Tin Can Back Drop: Using the same flower to fill each can unifies the look and makes it look put together…even though these were literally saved from going into the garbage can. They look so elevated and sparkly in these images!

4. Tin Cans With Lace and ribbon. You could use whatever matches your wedding (or house, for that matter) They bring a relaxed, but still put  together feel to the centerpiece. I think I may just steal this Idea for a summer evening dinner party! I love these!!

6. Stripped Painted Tin Can: All you need to do to get this graphic and modern look to your tin cans is wrap a piece of painter’s tape around the can before painting it. You could get different widths of  tape for variety.

7.  Bedazzled Tin Cans: I love the idea of playing up the sparkle of these tin cans by adding some pearls  and jewels to the  outside of these. Add a little Glam to your DIY.

8. Rope covered Tin Cans: Here’s a Nautical twist to the TIn Can vase….and it couldnt be more easy, just wrap  rope around it and secure with hot glue. I love the way it looks with plain white hydrangeas.
