Crafty Saturday!

Hi friends 😀

I hope you are having an awesome weekend! We are having a blast so far just chilling at home or relaxing in the park enjoying the sunshine…

So, I have been feeling extra crafty today (and yesterday) which could mean only one thing! More holes in our walls and a lot of glue on my fingers LOL 😛 Here is what I made today, which I really thing it is the least messy and easiest craft I have ever tried! Oh and did I mention that it costs almost nothing to make?

All you need is:

  • scissors
  • stick glue
  • thin rope
  • any kind of metal can – size depends on what you would like to make. I wanted to make a vase so I used this old tennis ball can. If you want to make a pencil holder a tin can from beans is the ideal size 😉

(Sitting on the floor is completely optional by the way 😉 If you have more space than me the results is potential better if you use a table LOL!)

What do you do?Exif_JPEG_420
Well, is as simple as that; apply -generously- the stick glue on the outside of the can and starting from one end roll the rope all around the can. Apply the glue on increments as you go so it want dry out. Also make sure that each wrap is nicely tighten with the previous one. Since this was meant to be a vase and I didn’t want the can to rust and ruin my flowers I put a small plastic bag in the tin can before I filled it with water.

Would you like to see the final result???

I really believe it is very pretty 🙂 And extremely inexpensive! If you are into handmade gifts, things like this would be a great idea. It is also a kids’ friendly craft as long as an adult handles the scissors at the end.

Here are some other things I ‘ve made using the same technique:

The painting is simple cardboard and some cinnamon sticks, star anise and a golden marker. And the little basket is the newest addition to our kitchen. I used the same technique and wrap the ugly metal bar holder with the same rope! – the chilli peppers are from our own little plant! @mymamus loves spicy foods so they will come handy once they are ready!
