Sometimes it’s nice when you don’t have to spend a single penny on a project! Wouldn’t you agree? Today’s recycled craft allows you to do just that! Something very similar to my Vintage Inspired Painted Mason Jars, except this time I used a soup can.
Recycling items for a project is perfection and this Rustic Twine Wrapped Vase is not only simple, but makes for a lovely centerpiece as well.
It’s amazing what a little paint and twine can do! Let’s take a look at how simple this project is.
Supplies for Recycled Craft using Soup Cans:
Soup Cans, empty and clean
Ivory Acrylic Paint
White Acrylic Paint
Fine Sand Paper
Paint two coats of ivory paint, followed by one coat of white paint. Layering the ivory and the white paint will allow for some color variation, giving it more of an aged,worn look.
Glue twine around center of can (to desired height), using glue gun.
Gently sand for a rustic finish. I just love how using the sand paper gave it a chippy look too!
And you’re done. It truly does look rustic… and these faux orange ranunculus are positively gorgeous!
This soup can recycled craft would look fantastic on a night stand or scattered along a long table for the perfect tablescape at your next dinner party. These vases would be a fabulous addition to a rustic themed wedding too!
I used this same tutorial in creating a DIY Rustic Silverware Caddy for A Little Typsy readers. Super fun and fabulous, be sure to swing by and check it out!
And there you have two repurposed soup can projects to add to your to-do list! Happy creating, sweet friends!
