DIY Birch Wood Tin Can Planters

Maria Provenzano is making her own birch wood tin can plants using empty cans, succulents and wrapping paper.


  • empty cans
  • succulents or whatever plants you like
  • dirt
  • glue; any kind should work, I like using hot glue 
  • wrapping paper with birch wood design and/work birch wood container wrap (this can look more realistic) 
  • Scissors
  • ruler
  • Christmas decorations; optional
