For all you Diet Coke addicts out there. Instead of tossing those used cans in the garbage, there is a cute way you can repurpose them and bring new life. The What's Up Mom Youtube Channel have devised 3 DIY Hacks for those old cans, and the results are amazingly adorable.
Empty Personalized Diet Coke or Coke Cans
Spray Paint of Various Colors
Metal Hole Punch
Paper Wrap Floral Wire
Use the can opener to open up the lids to all your empty cans.
With the spray paint, paint each can with various colors. Give them about 3 to 4 coats of paint and let them dry for 1 minute between applications.
Apply labels on each cans and now they are ready to put potting soil and herbs.
Use 6 cans, and open up the tops for every one of them. You need to use the metal hole punch to punch a hole near the top of 4 of the cans.
Apply a bead of glue to stick all 6 cans to each other using a glue gun. Make sure the cans with the holes are placed on the far end of each other, and have the holes face each other.
Thread in a paper wrap floral wire into the holes to create a handle.
Now you can place silverware into your new caddy.
Personalized Candle Holders
Use the personalized Coke cans, and cut open the top of each can. Place painters tape over the names of each cans.
Spray paint the can any color you desire following the instructions for the Herb Pots.
Remove the painters tape, and place a candle inside the can. You now have a beautiful personalized candle holder.
