simple holidays

 i love to craft during the holidays.  here are a few ideas...

all you need is a can {let us try to recycle}, scrap booking paper or other repurposed papers, glue, a ribbon, and a button or other embellishments.

  1. measure the paper just slightly taller and longer
  2. glue the can and the paper
  3. smooth the paper to the can and make sure there are no bubbles
  4. fold the top of the paper over the top lip of the can for a more finished look
  5. glue a ribbon and button around the can to embellish 
  6. toss in a handful of treats and give it away

here are a few ornaments we made with the same concept.
  1. kraft paper ornaments or an old ugly ornament you would rather cover
  2. scrap book paper, cut to fit
  3. glued and sanded around the edges to give it a more worn or vintage look
  4. then glitter mod podged to seal   

next, i am on to fabric.
what will you create this season?
