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!


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
