Tin Can Herb Garden

Tin can herb containersWe got our make on this week in the sunshine, upcycling some used tin cans recycled from the local college’s kitchen department. Once we got our hands on them we decided to create some bold painted tin can herb garden containers for my burgeoning kitchen window sill.

First up – we gave them a good old wash to get the food gunk and labels off and then painted some of them in a base white.

For two of the cans we went dotty using some old blue emulsion we found in the cupboard as the base colour, mixed up with some orange spray paint and white emulsion for blobby dots. For the others a drippy paint effect over the silver and blue. Super simple techniques but they brighten up my kitchen no end.
