Create a planter with a vintage can.
Country folks have upcycled product cans for years, reusing them for everything from holding nails and screws to scooping grain. To make your own planter, simply use an awl to add water drainage holes and then line the bottom with pea stones before planting a favorite flowering annual.
Tobacco tins are collectible and come in an array of colors and graphics. Choose examples with interesting letters and illustrations.
