Simple and affordable springtime tablescape ideas! Make your own beautiful vase by painting old coffee and soup cans.

Supplies:

    Can goods
    Water base Primer
    Water base Paint (color of choice)
    Sponge brush
    Flower (select flowers that are in season or simply cut them from your yard)
Steps:
    Empty cans and wash with soap and water
    Peel off can label
    Paint primer on the can (usually 1 coat is enough but 2 is recommended)
    Allow primer to dry over night
    Paint can with color of choice (1 to 2 coats)
    Allow to dry (depending on room temp -- it can approximately dry between 2-8 hours)
    Add water
    Add floral of choice
Note: Grocery aisles have some cans with pretty labels. You can leave the label and use it as part of the over all décor. You can mix it with the cans you have painted to add a more "whimsical" look to your spring tablescape.
