Here’s another project from the Pinspiration Files.
Isn’t this Santa Can adorable?
Come on! How easy is this to do yourself?
After a quick jaunt to the thrift store for a couple belts, I gathered my supplies:
Ok, so 38F is a little chilly for spray paint, but I couldn’t help myself.
I first took the belts and fit them around the cans to find where I’d need to punch new holes in them. I used a hammer and a nail to punch through the leather. I then took my two cans into the garage and quickly sprayed them both. While we patiently waited for the paint to dry, the kids and I went off for a nature hike to cut some greens.
Then we assembled. Wrap belt around can, dump some dirt into can, tuck greens and colorful branches in using the dirt to anchor and……
I dug up the little trees for the planters. Now we’ve added our Santa Cans. Our front door still needs a wreath and I’d like to add a little more sparkle to the front steps, but I think we’re off to a good start!
Total cost is $1.00 for the belts.
Ho Ho Ho!
