DIY Wedding Details: Covered Tin Can Centerpieces

Using found objects in your wedding can a) save some serious money and b) give your wedding a completely unique look!  Tin cans are something we all use in everyday life, so how about incorporating them into your wedding?

To create the look below, first gather tin cans, remove their labels and wash thoroughly, filing down any sharp edges.  Using decoupage glue or very high tack double-sided tape, cover the tin can with wallpaper, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, or fabric scraps.  As you see in the photo below, you can also use craft tools to crinkle your paper for a different look!  Arrange flowers, and voila – easy and inexpensive DIY centerpieces!

If you are feeling especially crafty, you can also sew fabric tin can covers.  A good tutorial can be found {here}.
