A simple DIY project for beautiful wedding table centerpieces, these copper cans are a cinch to complete. A little cleaning, a little spraying and a little time is all you need! 

PREPARE: Clean the cans thoroughly by washing them with soap and water. Make sure to remove all remnants of adhesive and label with Krud Kutter Sticky Krud Remover. Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry. Shake spray can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. 

APPLY: Hold can upright 10-16" from surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can the same distance from the surface. Keep the can in motion while spraying. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.

FINISH: Let the cans dry for up to 24 hours before adding flowers and styling your table.
