Add a retro twist to your succulents
Hi darlings, today was a sunny day and I got inspired to make this stylish pop art vase. You know I have a family – in growth – of succulents I love, so Irene had this great idea of making a Campbell’s Soup Vase at my home.

  • How to make a tin can planter. Diy Campell’s Soup Vintage Vase - Step 1
    Step 1

    t’s very easy, what you’ll need:

    - succulents in vase (mine are the smallest ones from Ikea, very cheap!)
    - Pringles tube (or similar)
    - scissors
    - bi adhesive tape
    - nail file

    Step 2

    Start by measuring the height of your succulent’s vase (mine was 6 cm) and cut the chips packaging at 6 cm from the bottom. Use a pen and make some marks in order to go straight. Now the packaging will probably have a rough edge like mine had, so grab the nail file and make it softer.

    Print the image of the packaging you can find just attached to this DIY and cut it like the image shows below (leave blank space on one side for the two strips to overlap).

    Also, check the height by leaning the piece of paper over the packaging: if it’s too high, work further with the nail.

    When you’re happy with the look of the edge, apply tape to the back of the longer edge of the label (where we left blank space) and paste to the chips tube. WATCH OUT NOT TO GLUE THE LABEL UP SIDE DOWN ( I was about to do this! fieuuu!).

    Place another piece of tape on the other end. Now, pull firmly the remaining label all around the tube and stick on the overlapping part. Done!
