Well happy 4th to everyone! All the sudden its summer in San Diego and my white legs are making their yearly appearance. By the end of the summer I will finally see some color on them, but its a long process I dread every year.
We've been rather busy at the roundy household with gardening projects, decorating, starting more crafts than I can finish, out of town company and special events at work. All of those have a story and I plan to blog about them the coming week. But for now I was able to finish one project; the 4th of July firecracker cans. Aren't they cute?
1. Wash your cans
2. With the use of hot glue wrap the can with your choice of paper. I added the ribbon trim to disguise my uneven cutting job. side note: I experimented with a rotary cutter and that darn thing was sharp, lets just say a couple of the lines went off track!
3. Hot glue your desired ribbon inside the open end of the can.
3. Hammer 2 holes in the top of the can to thread string through.
Thank you to Random Thoughts of a Supermom and Crafty Welder Chick for the inspiration!
