This project started out as an attempt at a Primitive project, but quickly turned into more of an Americana project.The shelves where I keep my partially used cans of paint, were not lighted good,plus the caps were missing on many, so you know the rest of the story.The color of paint I thought I was using turned out to be blue instead of black.No need to get bent out of shape over the color. I just proceeded to make an Americana pencil holder of sorts.A great project I can use to keep little ones involved on Monday.They will be out of school, so they will be coming for a visit.I'm hoping it will hold their interest for a few minutes anyway.
The only supplies needed was (1) a can.
I recycle all cans,so there are several clean ones in the holding bin.
(2) A piece of pretty paper of their choosing,I have loads of pretty paper.
(3)a strip of fabric of their choosing of which I have loads.
(4)glue and I have several bottles of glue.
(5)Lettering of their choosing
Leah is 11 and John is 7, and neither of them likes to work at any one project for very long.Hopefully, I can hold their attention until the cans are completed.Maybe if I offer to post their can pictures, they will do a better job.
