Recycling Craft for Cans - Pencil Holder or Paint Brush Holder
This is a great way to recycle cans and give them a practical use as well as a warm look for the winter months.
For this project you will need:
- can of choice - red thick quality strand of felt wool roving - red grosgrain ribbon stitched in white - 6 white felt reindeer motives - 3 white felt snowflake motives - 3 red gems - craft glue - double-sided adhesive tape
1. Wrap the can with double-sided adhesive. Then press the felt strand onto the top of the can and wrap around and work your way down to the bottom of the can. Press the felt constantly onto the adhesive to make sure it is adhering. 2. Once the can is covered, cut 2 strips of ribbon that are long enough to completly wrap around the can plus overlap. Glue one of these to the top of the can and the other to the bottom of the can. 3. Glue the felt figures onto the can as you see in the images. 4. Glue a gem on the center of each of the snowflakes when you are finished.
