I look out the back windows of my home to a fence, where the ground is too rocky to plant a garden. I wanted something more interesting than a fence to look at from my windows. I’ve had hanging baskets in the summer time, and in the winter it is so boring and dull. I’ve seen yard art that seems to be made from tin cans and thought, what about making some tin can flowers? That should be easy, right? It really was, and fun!
Here is a picture of the two trellises full of tin can flowers! All you need are some empty (and clean) tin cans, spray paint and acrylic paints or pens. Let’s start decorating your flowers!
