For this project I sprayed the container with adhesive and applied a liberal amount of glitter. When dry I added a piece of floral foam in the base of the container and topped it with shredded kraft paper. I tied some twine around the top of the container and added a sentiment to the front. To make the pinwheels I cut a 2x2 and 2.5x2.5 pieces of paper and constructed my pinwheels. With hot glue I add a piece of straw to the back of my pinwheel. I added some flair from my shop to the center of the pinwheel and pushed them into place into the floral foam!
The garland behind the project I also made using twine and alternating pieces of straws and circle punched paper!
The second project I used the same container. This time I tore pieces of postal wrapping paper and twisted them and then glued them to the container. I created the fabric flower in the center with trim and added a vintage milk cap to the center. Again, I placed a piece of floral foam and covered it with shredded kraft paper. Next, I took to straws and cut them to the size I wanted. With a sharp xacto knife I cut a small slit on both sides of the top of the straw to create a photo holder. I also created another pinwheel and decorated it with flair.
