I have had this empty can sitting around and I just knew there was something I could make with it. It sat on my kitchen counter for about 2 weeks, then yesterday, I finally figured out what to do!
Here is the lovely Tutorial. I hope you like it! I think I might make these for my child's class at school to put Halloween treats in:
You will need:
an empty Wyler's or Crystal light container.
1 can of black (or whatever color you prefer)of spray paint. I highly recommend buying your spray paint at Home Depot. They have the best price.
1- 8 1/2x11 or 12x12 piece of cute Halloween Scrapbook paper
2 different colors cardstock
Let paint dry. Mine dried in about 15-20 minutes.
Now you may have lots of cute little do dads laying around you could glue on your can, and I had some of this cute pom pom ribbon, so I glued it along the top lip of my can. I love those little pom poms!
I also wanted to make a torn flower, so I chose 2 different colors of cardstock, ripped them in the sizes I liked, then I crinkled the paper in my hand. Next I flattened out the paper, then inked the edges with black chalk ink. Glue the button on the top of the flower.
Glue the flower where desired on can. Next I punched a hole on each side of the can (I used a crop-a-dile, but you can just use a reg. hole punch) and tied some cute Halloween ribbon on each side. I also think some ribbon wrapped wire would be cute too. I decided not to use my lid for this project.
|I like the ribbon I used, but it wouldn't stand up. I'm ok with that....|
|Love the sweet little pom poms!|
|Don't you love my cute little BOO blocks? My 8 yr. old insisted on putting the spiders on top. I think it adds to the scariness of it!|
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I enjoyed doing it. I can't wait to come up with some lovely crafts for Christmas....is it that time already?
