Try using your watering can as a vase! Summer is the perfect time to incorporate some of your summer garden tools into art! If your watering can is not a great color, then try painting it. You can use spray paint, milk paint, or exterior house paint.
Now, in the opening, you want to create a frog. This is simply a small grid to hold your flower upright and space them out little. You can do this with some clear tape or duct tape, whatever you can get to stick to your water can.
Simply run thin rows of tape across the opening about an inch apart. Now, cross them to create a creature with more tape.
Now, start adding your flowers and greenery in the middle! Too easy!
13. Small Twig Basket
This next summer garden centerpiece is super easy to make. All you need is some twigs from the yard, some floral wire, a foam floral block, and some flowers. Simply make a small basket with your twigs. You can even use hot glue. Cut all of your twigs to the same length and start stacking home-like Lincoln logs in a square. Glue with hot glue as your go or tie the corners with floral wire.
Now, cut your floral foam to this size. Soak the foam and insert it into the twig square. You may want to set this on a plate or platter to catch any loose water.
Now, start to insert your flowers!
You could also make a bottom for this basket, line it with coconut liner, and plant a small plant in it!
14. English garden centerpiece
Finally, for a super affordable and long-lasting centerpiece on a budget use one of those many baskets you have laying around the house. Line it with some plastic garbage bags. You can staple gun this to hold it in place. Poke a few small holes in the bottom.

For a more finished basket, you can paint it with white paint for a fresh look. If you want to use all green plants try painting the basket in a red or another bright color. Be sure to mix and match your green hues in the plants for interest!
