Being invitation designers and crafters, however, our imaginations started churning re: how you might make these and incorporate them into the rest of the wedding design!
Plain tin cans are so beautiful and graphic that we can totally see using them as vessels for pretty flowers (photo via D.S. Brennan)
We can also envision spray painting the cans in vibrant colors, and even and stenciling them with simple initials or a graphic pattern. (via Peapods photo stream)

Or how about designing a pretty vintage-inspired label to wrap around the can, like so? Could be so cute! Photo from here.
Regardless, we love the concept - and it would be so fun and interactive to have guests tie them on during cocktail hour! Photo from here.
