AnnaDee explains how easy it is to recycle an old coffee can into a lovely flower planter.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Start out with a clean, dry coffee can. If you prefer, you can use different cans or any other container you want to recycle.

Spray paint the outside of the can whatever color you like. Let the paint dry.

Once the paint is dry, you can poke holes in bottom of cans for drainage or just place a cup holding fresh flowers or a potted plant inside. It is that easy!
