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!
Acrylic Paint (Ivory and White)
Fine Sand Paper
Paint two coats of ivory paint, followed by one coat of white.
Glue twine around center of can (to desired height).
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!
I used this same tutorial in creating this DIY Rustic Silverware Caddy for A Little Typsy readers. Super fun and fabulous, be sure to swing by and check it out!
