- sheet metal or a piece of wood painted with magnetic primer
- empty tin cans, label removed
- twine
- tags
- stamp (or just pretty handwriting)
- strong magnets
- strawberry plants and soil (herbs, wheat grass, moss or flowers would work well too)
- mini flag (made with a skewer and ribbon)
1. Paint the piece of wood with two coats of the magnetic primer and let dry.
2. Remove labels from tin cans and wash thoroughly and let dry.

3. Stamp the tags and attach to the tin cans by knotting a piece of twine.

4. Fill the can with soil and top with the strawberry plants. Stick the end of the skewer into the soil with the flag hanging over top.

5. Attach two magnets to the back of the can and display in rows on the magnetized board for your guests to grab on the way out.

  1. Very cute these tins with plants inside...I do have a wish to try to plant something k=like this, thanks for the DIY...cheers, Nádya

  2. I love this idea! I might do this in my kitchen this year (I'm already married - we didn't do anything nearly as intense as this, we had customized bracelets in our wedding color, though!).
