Planted watering can centrepiece and table number filled with succulents

Watering can table centrepiece

This idea caught my eye as I thought with the numbers on this planted up watering can it would make a great table centrepiece and table number all-in-one for a wedding.  There is a full tutorial on how to make this yourself (I didn’t realise this watering can had been sprayed grey), but if you wanted to just source old watering cans that are already aged and rusty they would work just as well.

You could either plant them up like they have done here, with any kind of cheerful pot plant – wouldn’t flowering lavender be beautiful?  Or you could place a glass jar in the watering can (if it doesn’t have holes or leaks just fill the can up directly) and pop in a beautiful floral arrangement.
