Painted Milk Can Planter


Don't settle for generic planters from a box store. Your flowers and garden are unique and beautiful, so you should plant them in something special like a Painted Milk Can Planter. If you are looking to add a vintage feel to your garden, scour the antique and skulk around garage sales until you can find the perfect soon-to-be planter. Your upcycled garden will be unlike any others on the block and you can add a beautiful stencil to make it even more pretty. Make your garden especially beautiful with this cute small garden idea.

A great idea to use a nice piece of agricultural history to spruce up your garden or deck space. Living in Wisconsin, in dairy country, I have seen many of these for sale at garage sales and in antique malls. I think it would be okay even to leave a can weathered and gray and it would look rustic that way.

I have two of these milk canisters that I actually use as table bases for our patio. I bought them at a yard sale for five dollars!! They are pretty scruffy, and actually starting to rust from the elements. Painting them.will give them a new look and help to protect them from the weather.

What a feast for the crafter,love the sweater vases,and the milk can container.Your garden crafts are brilliant,I do not have any beautiful things for my garden but will be using your crafts.Thank you.

I prefer unusual planters to the run of the mill ones available in stores - have a couple of milk cans and cream cans painted so they won't rust now my unique planters are totally personalized - thank you for the idea and directions
