A Splash of Color

This colorful project for my backyard was inspired by Pinterest. It is a combination of a couple different ideas that I saw. I saved tin cans from soup, canned beans and tomatoes and such and painted them bright colors with cheap gloss acrylic paint. Then I punched holes in the bottom of the cans for drainage and a hole on the top of each can to allow for a hook so I could hang them on my fence. I formed S hooks using some wire that we happened to have lying around and filled the cans with potting soil and different types of flowers. I planted zinnia seeds in some of the planters. Then I simply hung the cans on my fence with the S hooks. I love the splash of color and uniqueness this brings to our back yard!
