This Upcycled Coffee Can Planter is a great way to recycle and bring beautiful plants inside the house.
I love having plants inside my home, mostly succulents because I love how they look and how easy they are. But also because I heard they improve the air quality.
I bought this succulent when it was just a little guy and it’s been in my back window in the same container that it came in since then, which was like a year or more ago. I figured now was the time to get him into a bigger home for growing. Thats’s where my coffee came into play.
I always recycle items like my plastic coffee containers, but this Maxwell House coffee came in a tin can so I set it on the counter and new I could make something useful from it like a bank, plastic bag holder or this Upcycled Coffee Can Planter.
How to make a Upcycled Coffee Can Planter:
Lay out a piece of cardboard in a well ventilated area like outside, spray your coffee can white and let dry.
Fill your can about halfway with soil, loosen the soil and roots on your plant and place it on top of your soil.
Use a spoon to pack the rest of the soil around the plant.
Carefully hot glue a pink pipe cleaner around the bottom of your white can. The pipe cleaners might not be long enough to fit all the way around, in that case, cut another small piece and carefully glue it in the open section.
Keep glueing the pipe cleaners around the can above each other and filling in the empty spaces if needed.
Once you have about 5-7 pipe cleaners around the bottom of the can, your Upcycled Coffee Can Planter is finished and ready for a little water and sunshine.
