Upcycled Velvet Tin Can Planters

By: Claire Armstrong from

"You can make some very stylish and affordable planters for your home by just upcycling some old tin cans. Velvet is a very popular trend in home interiors at the moment that's why I decided to use the fabric to make some unique but gorgeous indoor planters. The use of this luxurious fabric manages to transform a mundane tin can into something more expensive looking. I've used these velvet upcycled tin cans as succulent planters but you could also just use them as desk caddies."

Materials List

  • velvet ribbon
  • tin cans
