Can plant pots with leather straps

Recycle old tin cans by painting them and using them as decorative plant pots. We have used rivets to fasten leather straps around the cans, which we have stamped with the names of the herbs.

Paint

Paint the exterior of the can with Outdoor Vintage paint.

Stamp

Measure around the can and cut a length of leather strap to fit around the can plus an extra 10cmfor the rivets. Soak the leather strap in water and stamp on the names of the herbs.

Star rivets

Use a pair of hole punch pliers to make holes in the strap and affix the star rivets. Place the strap over the can and plant your herbs!
