Inspire Me: Refurbished Tuna Cans

First off, can we agree on how absolutely brilliant this idea is! Who ever thought those pesky tuna cans could make such adorable pot plants? I came across these gorgeous succulents on a recent visit to the florist. They were so simple yet unique that I couldn't pass up the chance to photograph them. 

There's nothing like a visit to the florist to heighten your senses and stimulate your creativity. I always come away brimming with new ideas. It all began back in Architecture school. After spending hours and hours trying to find an elegant solution to whatever design problem I was working on, I would give up in despair and drive off to the nearby 24-hour flower shop to clear my head. Why on earth would a 24-hour flower shop even exist is beyond me, but I'm thankful that they do. Years later I still find myself wandering into florists regularly for inspiration and a little creative pick-me-up.

If you are stuck on holiday gift ideas, these succulents would make excellent stocking stuffers. I'm feeling inspired to create my own, but instead of a pastel hues I'm thinking something sparkly and gold for the holidays.

I envy their knowledge about flowers and plants in general and ability to use them for decorative purposes! I love our local florists very much too. And what a brilliant idea for the cans! I've got some tins here (with the fish still in it, but I don't eat tuna), so now I can DIY something pretty. :)

These have to be the cutest things ever! It is such a great idea to reuse a tuna can to make one of these (except I don't eat tuna! :) I'm sure I can find something else. And I love the idea of stocking stuffers. And of glittering them up. They will be so cute!!
