Plant/Candle Holder

When I saw this on a blog, I thought what a great idea to use up my old clothes pins and scrap paper!  You probably have all you need at home right now to make one!

Supplies:

Empty can of tuna fish washed out well!!
Scraps of DSP paper
Mod Podge
Embellishments of your choice

I washed out my tuna fish can and while it was drying I cut some scrap DSP to fit my clothes pins and used mod podge to adhere them.  Then came the hard part - I just pinched them on the can one by one going around the circle until the can was covered!  I wanted to play with my Ribbons and Rosette cricut cartridge, so I decided to make some rosettes for decoration and added some buttons and a lady bug that has been hanging around.  I put in a clear candle holder I had and plan on buying a little plant for it.  If you need more details see the link I mentioned above. 

Well, it's hard to believe that this is the last week of February.  St. Patrick's Day is right away the corner, so I had better get started with some goodies!  Sarah was here over the weekend but too much homework to do much crafting.  We are all waiting for Spring to come!  Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
