DIY Beer Can Planters

beer cans turned into planters in a rowFather’s Day is coming up and I always try to brainstorm a couple DIY projects that maybe a dad would appreciate. (I usually fail…) Whenever I search for ideas it seems that the only Father’s Day gifts are sports team or alcohol related… ha! But my Dad doesn’t really partake in either of those things and actually I’m not so sure he likes gifts in general. So I’m sticking with the beer theme in case some of you have a beer-loving dad just because there are so many sweet beer can designs out here that I think should be appreciated! There are so many local breweries nearby so I thought it would be fun to save some of the recyclables and make a set of planters for my brother’s fresh kitchen using a few of his favorite breweries. (And a few of my favorite designs… because what’s more important about beer than the design of the can it’s in… right?!) I’m already working up a beer can edition of the planter wall for his apartment too! beer cans turned into planters in a rowWhat you need:

    This is such a cute idea! Definitely going to share with our residents as a creative way to upcycle La Croix cans as well!ReplyCancel

    That is such a great and good looking idea that everyone can try. I´ll definitely will do that in the future when I finally get some plants! xx KirstenReplyCancel
