DIY Clothespin Planter and Candle Holder

Here is a really smart idea for making stylish planters and candle holders from very simple things. Besides it’s also a recycling project. To make one planter or one candle holder you’ll need a used fish can, several clothespins, construction paper and a small plant or a candle.

All you need to do is to clip clothespins all the way around the rim of the can. Place your plant or candle inside and decorate the planter or the candle holder with something you cut from the construction paper. For example you can cut hearts and tuck them in between clothespins. Depending on the time of the year you can change these decorations.
