DIY: Vintage tin can vase

I love the look of the vintage tea tin centerpieces, like these over at Martha Stewart Weddings, but who really has the time (or the funds) to hunt down enough of those vintage or unique looking tins for centerpieces? Then I saw this brilliant idea over on Rachael Ray for a recycled chic look.

How To: This centerpiece was created entirely from the canned-foods aisle of your average grocery store. To re-create the look, choose retro-looking cans from your own market, empty them—to make a pie, perhaps? —and fill them with small bunches of flowers. Employ family members to do the same, and you'll be on your way to a collection of great, chic, vintage-looking, recycled centerpieces in no time.
