Ribbon Week: Day 3

I really love this project.
So much, that I made a bunch,
and am using them in my studio
to hold this and that...
things like, oh say, ribbon scraps.

What wonders we can do
with recycled cans and craft supplies!
I used an No. 2 size can
and large spools for these,
but they would be sweet
 in a mini version too.

1. Remove the label from the can.
2. Cut a piece of tree wrap to fit around can
(I'm crazy for tree wrap!)
3. Use a hot glue gun to secure tree wrap
4. Use more hot glue to mount 3 spool "legs" to the bottom of can
5. Finish off with a sweet length of ribbon tied atop the tree wrap
6. Fill with a plant, flower, kitchen utensils, ribbon scraps.....


  1. I LOVE this idea, Christine! Never thought of using tree wrap. You are sooo clever!

  2. Very cool!! Such a creative idea, and awesome storage! I might be making some of these!! xo Heather

  3. Tree wrap is awesome....such a cool texture, inexpensive, and available in big rolls! It is hard to secure though...tape and regular kinds of glue just didn't cut it, so hot glue gun is a mess. (and if you sew, it would be cool to sew pieces together:)
