So, like many of us moms, I have tons of these…..
And Wade said that I have to do something with them by the next trash day or they go in the recycle bin because they are like rabbits and just keep multiplying.
Here is the first project using a bunch of scraps I found around the craft room, they are:
- Crunchies can
- 2 fabric strips
- Flower with button center
- Rick rack
- Hot glue gun
Take your scrap of burlap:
And make a rectangle that will fit the can:
And hot glue it on:
Then you have this:
Next I took a strip of black and white fabric and hot glued it flat on the surface around the middle of the can:
Then I added a white ruffle with the glue gun- here is where it can get tricky, by all means sew a ruffle whatever way you know and hot glue that puppy around the middle of the black and white fabric. I made a ruffle with my hot glue gun and this is how I did it:
First glue the end on:
and then I put a little glue on and pinched the fabric before the glue dried.
It worked out pretty well.
Then I found a piece of jumbo pink rick rack that I hot glued around the center… I really found things as I went lol:
Next came a flower that I had all set up to be a hair accessory that was ready to just be hot glued on something (it is more pink that it looks):
And it was done! Ready to be filled with writting utensils and placed on a desk… maybe your child’s teacher’s desk.
when I was teaching I would have loved something handmade like this for the classroom.
