So remember when I said I had a lot of projects to blog? Here comes round two…I finished our rehearsal dinner centerpieces!
I decided to use tin cans and fake flowers for these centerpieces…not only to save on cost, but so that I could get them out of the way now rather than later. Plus I think the more casual tin cans go great with our fiesta theme!
Making these was really easy.
Step 1. Collect a lot of tin cans.
Step 2. Soak said tin cans in a sink full of soapy water, so the labels are easy to get off.
Step 3. Scrape off the labels on each can—this should be pretty effortless. If not, soak a little longer!
Step 4. Rinse and dry the cans. Soon, you’ll have them stacked on the counter like this:
Step 6. Measure your cans and cut the design accordingly. Run through Xyron or use another form of adhesive.
Step 7. Attach design to tin can!
Step 8. Stuff flowers.
And that’s it! You’re left with this:
As you can see I alternated colors on the design. I also bought both red and blue flowers…I am thinking I might rearrange so that some centerpieces are just blue and some are just red.
What is/was your rehearsal dinner like? Did you do a lot of hands-on decorating for it?
