Oatmeal Canister Re-Do

Hi all!  Good grief, I cannot seem to get caught up on blogging!  I think part of the problem is it is quite low on my list of things that I want to do or have to do!  So, I’m going to try and keep this short.

Today I have a fun upcycling project.  I took an oatmeal canister and prettied it up to be a headband holder for my daughter.  Here’s your before shot.

And, here’s the after shot — so much more personality and so much prettier!

The canister is too big to use 12×12 papers.  I opted to use 6×6 papers from K & Company Sweet Nectar.  I started by placing one sheet in its entirety and went from there — it allowed for some fun shapes and cuts on the canister.  For the lid, I put another circle of paper on the top and wrapped the edge with ribbon.  Since the inside could be useful for holding some of the other random mess that she has floating around her room, I wanted there to be a “handle” of sorts.  I used a small wooden spool, wrapped it with ribbon and attached it to the lid.  On top of the spool is a pretty silk flower.  My daughter loves it and actually has some of her headbands on it!  Mission accomplished!
