This is a soup can with a bit of scrapbook paper wrapped around it. I even went super lazy and just taped the paper. It would have looked better with hot glue, but I was kind of in a hurry when I made it. A couple days later I took the extra step and put ribbon around the top (with hot glue this time).
And then here is another one I threw together because I like the paper and needed something to old a few dry erase markers.
Nothing fancy but definitely cuter than a plain soup can.
I also need something for my youngest daughter's wall. I had moved some things around and ended up with a horribly blank and plain wall. My Dad had made a beautiful wood name plaque for her when she was born. I just needed something to go under it and like I mentioned, we aren't really spending any extra money right now.
So, I went to my ever trusty Microsoft Excel program and used the Word Art feature.
And this is how the wall looks now. Much better.
I have found a serious love of scrapbook paper! You can use that stuff for everything. It adds such a decorative touch to the most common things and makes them look so much prettier. I am all about cheap and easy decor. I am hoping to create some more and maybe with a little more flair soon.
What have you guys created out of things you all ready have?
