Any Old Can Will Do

You really know you are a junker  crafter
When you make something out of an old tin can!
 I just hope I don't become obsessed collecting old cans!
 I used fabric, burlap and buttons on these cans.
I thought they would be cute for a 4th of July table decoration
Yes, I think months ahead sometimes when I am creating something.
 I am actually planting them with sunflower seeds
I have inserted a plastic cup, with a hole in the bottom for drainage.
I hope my idea turns out.
Oh, well if the seeds don't grow, there are always
Faux flowers. . .
I think I will link this up with the Pringle Challenge at
I hope she will let me link more than one. . .
I am still working on the Pringle Can. . .
Come back and see what I have done with it. . K
