Some projects take just minutes to put together but have such a big impact. That’s exactly the case with this DIY tin can vase!
It is one of the simplest projects around, but it instantaneously brought a burst of spring to my tired winter decor.
I’m telling you that in just ten minutes you can make a similar vase with a tin can. How great is that?

- You’ve probably figured this out already, but for this project you’ll need a tin can. You can rescue one from the recycling bin or you can buy tin cans like these that don’t have rough edges and leftover food in them.
- Pretty scrapbook paper
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Double-sided tape
- Floral foam
- Faux floral stems in styles of your choice
- Wire or floral cutters
How to Make a Vase Out of a Tin Can
First up, cut your scrapbook paper to size. If you have a paper cutter, this is the perfect time to use it. If you don’t have one, use your scissors to trim your paper, but know that you should add a paper cutter to your craft supply arsenal.
After you’ve done that, attach the scrapbook paper to the tin can with the double-sided tape.
Then tie twine or ribbon around the paper. (Twine is one of the 10 craft supplies I recommend you buy at Dollar Tree! To see the other products, check out this post.)
Next, place your floral foam in the bottom of the tin can. Trim your faux floral stems to size and start placing them into the floral foam. I used a variety of stems that I purchased at Dollar Tree and Michaels.
And that’s it! See, super easy but so pretty!
Whip up one of these for yourself, or bring one to a friend or neighbor. And if you liked this project, please pin it to reference later!
