    Love the idea of using tin cans. Where do you get the beautiful paper to put on the cans?

      Hi, thanks for your comment. The designs on cans you asked are craft made. If you want, you can buy them in local craft stores. Good luck

        Could you tell us how to make these raised designs if they were craft made?

          These metal embossments are also sold readily. There are also aluminum embossing pens (you can find them in online stores). You can make any shape you want with these pens. Alternatively, you can take aluminum foil embossments or make them yourself (I think it is filled with plaster or sawdust-like materials).

    I love these. Are there instructions for the embossed cans?

      Hello Pamela, thank you for your comment. The designs on embossed cans you liked are craft made with stones or ready-made mold. If you want, you can use glue to stick on the can or you can buy ready-to-use one in local stores. Have a good day!

      Thank you very much for your comment. Some cans were decoupaged. You can create an original tin can planter using the materials you have available. Good luck.

    How do you attach the cans together in that stacked planter with the pebbles glued on the cans.

      Hello Beverly Murray, you may use silicone to stick cans together. Have a good day!

    Hello Ann, I am just blown away with your artistry and want to beg you to please tell me how you made the label with the wheel barrel and French script on the amber coffee can. It looks like air dry clay with a transfer or something else, or is it a stamp impressed into clay? I am dying to make one of these for myself! Thank you, Sharon
