Upcycling: decorated tin cans

Painted tin planters with retro style

Empty used containers are often far too good to throw away when there are so many exciting ways to upcycle them – like this idea for making trendy herb pots, for instance, using upcycled tin cans. Use edding Permanent Spray to personalise them any way you want by adding your own colourful designs. To create a beautiful striped effect on your tin can plant pots, we recommend the masking technique as it produces striking patterns with precise, clean edges.
