I am so excited to share these Easy Diy Tin Can Pumpkins. Their super easy to make and so darn cute, and a great way to keep tin cans out of the landfill, and a fun and inexpensive way to decorate for the holidays.
Easy Diy Tin Can Pumpkins
Gather your tin cans, clean the sticky gunk from the labels off the cans
Next use a small nail and poke a hole in the bottom center portion of each can then use a screwdriver to enlarge the holes just large enough for your twigs to fit into.
Paint your cans different shades of orange or whatever color you choose.
Once dry distress your cans using sandpaper to add a little bit of rustic charm to your tin can pumpkins.
After that I added my favorite antiquing medium.
Now hot glue your Twigs into the holes. I glued mine from the inside of the tin cans.
Next I added my wire for the tendril’s. The wire had some kind of material over it that made it resemble wood, not sure of the name but I found it at Michaels. You could just use regular wire and add a patina to it, like I did on my wood pumpkins.
Using a pencil a added the curls in the tendril’s. Then I hot glued some leaves that I had cut off of some flower sprigs.
I finished off my Easy Diy Tin Can Pumpkins by tying some strands of raffia around the cans. I love how they turned out, I think their adorable!
