I’m not great with tools and complicated DIYs so this was a perfect project for me and I truly super enjoyed making this lovely flower pot. And it looks so good in a little girl’s room!

I used construction adhesive to glue the pom poms to the tin can because it’s super strong and it dried very quickly keeping the pom poms in place while I moved to the next set of pom poms. I also used electrical tape to secure the rim of the tin can which otherwise can be a hazard because it was so sharp. Electrical tape is very thick and also pretty flexible allowing me to easily cover the curved rim.

  • Remove the paper and the glue on the tin can, wash well and let dry completely.
  • Tape the inside of the tin can around the rim if sharp.
  • Working in small sections, apply a coat of adhesive to the outside of the tin can and spread it with the brush. The coat should be thin but not too much.
  • Press pom poms into the adhesive one at a time. I decided to make a simple pattern and I worked in rows but I wanted to give interest to my flower pot so I mixed different color pom poms.
  • Continue in the same manner until you cover the whole tin can in adhesive and pom poms.
  • You can use different size pom poms if you wish. Just don’t spend a lot of time on arranging them on the tin can as the adhesive dries out pretty quickly.
  • Leave to dry over night then fill with soil and flowers. I placed an ugly, brown plastic flower pot into my DIY pom pom pot.
