A few more Christmas crafts

oddieDecember 12, 2008

you know how I like makeing something to give candy or cookies in, saw this hat done in paper form, so heres mine Super size veg can, bottom cut from a sheet of sand paper will add cellophane with cookies and a ribbon of some sort.

a couple bottle cap pins I made, not good photos two much glare, but you get the idea.

last are scented snowballs, I like useing wax cause you can add alot of scent and kept wraped latter will stay from year to year, I will add a sprig of fresh pine attached to the bag when I give these.

thanks for looking

Ooh, Oddie, I love the hat you made, and wish I'd seen this post before I went out and bought tins from the dollar store. We give candy or cookies to all our neighbors every year.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea.
Goodness knows, I've saved plenty of coffee cans.

Those are so cute. I might have to try something like that for small gifts of candy or something. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

Thank you! glad you liked them.
twinklenose, wish I had some of the coffee cans left, have used all of the ones I saved, did a cute snowman last year, if I can find the photo I will post it for you.
sorie6 if you look on page 2 of the gallery there are more of the snowflake pins I made last year, I posted how to make them on that post, if you need more help just ask.
Heres the snowman made with a coffee can, hat is made from a nut can, opens also for small candy.


Happy Crafting
