Hello City Farmhouse Friends! It’s Emily here from The Wicker House, and I’m so happy to be back here contributing for another fresh new year. It’s always a pleasure to be here, my head is already spinning with projects and ideas that I can’t wait to share with you.
This project that I’ve chosen to show you today is something that is not only simple to make, but it is also a good way to show the planet you care. By reusing a couple of old coffee cans, I have made these beautiful buckets that are perfect for holding potted plants.
So I’m a big coffee drinker. I gotta have my coffee every morning before I can start the day. Are you a coffee drinker too? If not, find a friend who is and have them save their coffee cans for you so that you can make this project too.
I buy my coffee from Costco and lately I have really been enjoying this Kirkland brand one. However, when my coffee is all gone, I have had a hard time throwing away the cans. I just felt like there was something cool I could create with them.
So after much thought, I came up with the idea of turning them into decorative buckets. And to be honest, I did not think they would turn out as cute as they did. That’s why I wanted to share the instructions with you today so you can make some too.
Next, using a 3/8 inch drill bit, I drilled a hole 1 1/2 inches from the top on each side of the can. These holes are for the rope handle to go through.
Thanks City Farmhouse for having me over today, It’s been fun!
