I feel like I haven't been crafty in quite some time and I have been wanting to be. But to be honest at 9 months pregnant, I don't feel like doing much but getting this baby out. So, crafts have been put on the back burner and just maintaining everyday life with the 2 kids has been a task. Today I was excited to get a 3 minute craft in that actually will be used.
I have been saving formula cans for about 6 months just knowing that one day I would find something to do with them. Well today, I decided to actually put one to use. Miss Curly Q has a ton of headbands and bows and they are thrown in random baskets and pinned to a board all over the top of her dresser. So, I made her a headband & bow holder in literally under 3 minutes with a formula can, scrap fabric a glue gun and some paint pens. It's not the cutest thing, but it serves its purpose and I got to feel a little crafty today.
I'm sure you could do the same with an oatmeal container and customize these for gifts, maybe even covering them with scrapbook paper instead of fabric so that you could could cover the lid too.
