Vintage Planters

I love vintage seed packets and if you look on the internet you can find all kinds of them. The Graphics Fairy is great resource. I actually was inspired by these tins I saw at Hobby Lobby and then later saw them in a catalog for waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy too much money.
Aren't they cute??? Say 100.00 cute???? Nah!
So I have access to a bunch of these No 10 cans...
And I thought well I oughta.....
I don't know about you guys but I have been finding some great deals on spray paints lately. These spray paints were all on clearance for a buck, yep a mere buck! I love the texture of them.
This one is a marigold color...
And this one is really nice, red and white, lots of cool ideas came to mind with this one.
And this one would be great for Halloween, orange, purple and green, great combo, BUT having said all of that when I saw them I thought veggies and I thought my seed packet lables and so I quickly put them in my cart. I didn't actually plant my plants in these but you could. If you do I recommend drilling holes in the bottom of the cans. I think these could look really cool painted in bright colors and hung on a fence with flowers planted in them. But these will go on my shelf that you see when you come to my front door. I have shown you it before, this is what it looked like last summer.
It was a beach theme, but that was because I was going to the beach in October and that was my way of keeping me content until then, this year, no beach so I decided to come up with something else. I'm almost done, and when I am I will reveal the whole thing!

These are so cute. Did you label have a sticky backing or did you mod podge it on? I love it.

Nice! From your imagination to reality. I love it! The idea of hanging these on a fence is superb, maybe on the side of the gardening bench to hold gloves or the like.
Congratulations on another successful project.
And the beach entry is rockin it.
