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}.

  1. Great minds think alike ;-) — we’re doing this for our wedding! DIY-ing the cans for our flowers will help cut down on our costs, and we have lots of fabric remnants and papers lying around, so… I need to go stock up on glue.

  2. I LOVE THIS!!! I am so going to do a version of this for my wedding. I also love the oilcloth tablecloth. Another thing to research. Fun :)

  3. Love using tin cans! These ideas are great and there are so many more possibilities for incorporating them into your wedding decor. Why not dress them up and hang them on stanchions up the walk to let people know where they enter to find your wedding event. (You can fill the cans with greenery, flowers, rose petals, etc… Lots of fun!
