"These recycled food containers never looked better. A little metallic spray paint and denim scraps turned the Spam cans and plastic Mushroom container into a trio of designer looking succulent planters. To make these planters I first thoroughly cleaned them with soap and water. My first thought was just to spray paint the containers but then I remembered the denim scraps I saved after I made my jeans into shorts. How fun would it be to decorate the succulent containers with denim?"
