What you’ll need:
Clean and dry your #10 cans. Make sure any labels are thoroughly removed. If you have a stubborn one or glue that won’t release, spray a little WD40 on it. Let it sit a minute and then roll it right off.
Drill enough holes to allow for proper draining. I used a super small bit, so I needed more holes. My bit was a little too small and broke on the last hole I drilled.
Next, spray your can. You just need to spray the outside. I used paint that was double coat strength, after realizing that regular spray paint took more than 2 coats.
Make sure you are in a well ventilated area with no wind. Place your cans on newspaper to protect the ground. Spray in small, swift strokes at least 6 inches from the can, to avoid drips.
Add good quality potting soil and the plant of your choice. My planters are in full sun, (more than 6 hours a day) so I chose plants that love the sun. Primrose and herbs.
NOTE: You will need to water these more often as weather heats up, at least once daily.
