Our Christmas Craft
In the spirit of reducing, reusing, and recycling, we came up with a container idea this year for the "goodies" that we give family, friends and co-workers. Actually, my super crafty Sis came up with the original idea for Halloween - see the Mummy - and I played off of that and decided to just use ribbon.
What to do: Take clean coffee cans or formula cans (of which we had a TON of), remove outer paper and drill 2 holes in the top for handles. I wrapped them all in streamers first (because some of the ribbon was see-through), then wrapped them in ribbon. I then tied a bow, and used pipe cleaners for the handles. I actually had a much cuter idea of using different colored streamers to make candy canes, snowmen and I even had a tree figured out, but in the interest of time, I punked out and went with the ribbon. I still think they are super cute anyway.
