How to Make a Clothespin Tin Can Planter or Organizer

Start by separating the clothespins so they are two pieces, and setting the wire clip aside.

Now, you will glue the pieces onto your tin can going around it gluing them vertically until the can is completely covered.

Once the clothespins are in place, you will paint them your desired color. I used white.

Next, you add the details that make it look more like a barrel. This is where I added a strip of rustic twine or rope around the top edge, bottom edge, and then two pieces around the center of the can.

Add embellishments between the two center strips of rope. I glued on miniature red flowers.

Now your can is done and ready to fill with pens, pencils, markers, or flowers.
