PUMP"CANS" GALORE MADE FROM MY CRAFT STASH!
Hi there so happy you stopped by to see my shabby "Something from nothing" Pump"Cans". I just love making something from nothing! How about you? Are you the type to spend a fortune at the local craft store or use the resources that you have on hand? Don't get me wrong I spend at the craft store as well, stencils, paints materials, glue sticks etc......But today this craft can be made from things around the house.
These are my tin can Pumpcans! A craft easy as pie and the little ones can help too!
This is Mo, he insisted on being in this photo shoot.
One things for sure I have all my ducks Pumpcans in a row!
This is all the supplies you will need for this craft, old big or little cans or even plastic containers,elastic bands, cording , material or even old clothes, I used Mr. Sweet Teas Nike tee he never wore because he didn't want to look like a pumpkin. Paper bags and paint if you like. I made some orange , the kids in the house can't accept white or any other color but orange.
The procedure is simple cut enough material place can in center and just bunch the material and tie tight with rubber band. Cut some bag for the stem and just wrap around the bunched up material and rubber band with the paper bag using wet hands , brown paper works best that way for molding. Cut some leaves out , you can trace your childs hand for the leaves. Then just hot glue the leave on.
I took some green cording and sprayed it with a bit of hairspray and wound it on a wooden spoon so the vine would look curled. You can add a face or not.
I made this pumpkin with décor in mind.
Hope I have inspired you to maybe get your family together and make some of these Pump "Cans"! Thanks so much it has been wonderful having you!

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 !
