Recycle Aluminum Cans into Washi Tape Flower Vases

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know that I’m crazy about washi tape. I stick it on just about everything in our home (candles, invitations, wall art). Last month, I hosted a Crafternoon and wanted to create some cheap, quick flower vases.

I headed to our recycling bin and grabbed a bunch of cans (we have a tons since we adopted our dog, Darcy). I washed them out, then painted them with a white satin spray paint. Once they dried, I wrapped each can with one piece of washi tape. In about 30 minutes I had 10 adorable, up cycled flower vases! I loved them so much I decided to move them into the house. Here’s a peak at where I placed them in our home.

I reused a candle tray I got from Ikea that I used during the holidays to hold my washi tape candles. It makes a perfect tray for the flowers!

I placed one in the den, on the tray that sits on the glass coffee table. And yes, I heart great design books. All of the ones shown in this post are wonderful, inspiring reads.

I placed one on the side table in our living room. Aren’t these gold chevron lamp shades awesome? I found them on clearance at Target a few weeks ago.

Then I placed one on the sink in the guest bathroom. Seeing flowers in nearly every room in the house just makes smile. If you make these, I would love to see them!
