From the runway to your home, warm mineral elements like copper, bronze and gold are showing up everywhere. Bring a little bit of that glamour to your Thanksgiving table with this crafty DIY that’s plucked right from your kitchen cupboards! Paint tin cans of varying sizes and heights in metallic tones, then fill them with a mix of harvest-hued blooms (we used dahlias and kangaroo paw) to create a gorgeous upcycled arrangement that spans the length of your table.

Tremclad hammered finish paint in copper, $10, Canadian Tire. Krylon dual metallic paint & primer in copper, from $6, Krylon.
