An Empty Tomato Sauce Can And Some Paint Equals a Great Gift For A Dinner Hostess!
Hi there, it's cold again here in Florida , I have to always be on the ready to cover all the plants in the yard with cloth if we here tell of a freeze. Or I will have dead frozen plants on my hands. I have managed to save up some huge tomato cans. So seeing that I will need a gift this weekend for the cook I crafted a utensil holder. I used hammered copper spray paint then once it was dry I "aged" the copper a bit with some green paint here and there.
I used a piece of left over linen and stenciled some #'s on it added some cording bows and a vintage tin cookie cutter.
I also hot glued a small little ruffle on the top to give it a finished look.
Anyone with a kitchen to cook in will love this gift and the best part it is made for practically no money at all , and the creativity is all up to you. You can design it the way you like it but I must warn you may want to keep it yourself when you are done. Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share todays craft.

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
