Rustic Twine Wrapped Vase | Repurposed Soup Can

Sometimes it’s nice when you don’t have to spend a single penny on a project!  Wouldn’t you agree?  Maybe you want to create a centerpiece without having to break the bank?  Well, today I’m going to share a way I did just that! Something very similar to my Vintage Inspired Painted Mason Jars, except this time I used a soup can.  Woot!  It’s amazing what a little paint and twine can do!

This repurposed soup can vase would look fantastic on a night stand or scattered along a long table for the perfect tablescape while entertaining your dinner party guests.  They would be a fabulous addition to a rustic themed wedding too!

Twine Wrapped Soup Can VaseSupplies:
Soup Cans
Acrylic Paint (Ivory and White)
Glue Gun
Fine Sand Paper

Step One: 
Paint two coats of ivory paint, followed by one coat of white.

Step Two:
Glue twine around center of can (to desired height).

Step Three:
Gently sand for a rustic finish.

Layering the ivory and the white paint will allow for some color variation, giving it more of an aged,worn look.  I just love how using the sand paper gave it a chippy look too!  It truly does look rustic… and these orange ranunculus are positively gorgeous!
