I have a list of things I want to try to make before December rolls around and life gets too hectic. I have seen some things in magazines, on blogs or in stores - and I also have "pinned" some clever ideas, too. Today I made a canvas cone to hold little treats- something I saw recently in a gift shop in Skaneateles, NY.
I started with a piece of canvas cut into a shape that would fold into a cone:I painted both sides green with acrylic paint:
Then I painted a poinsettia and added a few polka dots:
I hot glued the canvas into a cone and added trim and a handle:
The trim has cute little buttons dangling:
And this is how it looked - ready to be filled with candy or a little present:
I think I will make a few in traditional Christmas colors to put on our neighbor's doors during the holidays!
