Tin can plant pots

I love my vintage bird cages, but trying to find pots in the right colour to sit inside them is virtually impossible.

So I decided to make my own using some tin cans and PlastiKote's outdoor spray paint in blue lilac.

I love how they have turned out and I have now hung my birdcage on my newly painted fence to add a splash of colour and a touch of pretty.
