Well, maybe not Martha but I've certainly been cranking out the crafts recently. Today's easy craft is brought to you by Pinterest, and my friend Jessica, for showing it to me.
I needed something for Mary's hair bows and while I love the frames with the ribbon, we don't have a ton of those kind of bows, so I needed something else. Jessica sent me a pin using an oatmeal container and some card stock.
Went to Wegmans got their Oatmeal for maybe $2.99 and headed home. Emptied the oatmeal out and went to the craft desk. I found some chevron card stock left over and I rolled it around the container. I needed two pieces of card stock because my container was a little bit larger. I ended up taking the label off the container so I was able to glue on the cardboard. I glued the first piece and then lined up the second piece and glued it. Cut the paper at the bottom and folded it over, and that my friends is the whole project.
Here are the pictures of this 10 minute craft. The pedestal is just a small pink flower pot I had around the house. You can get them at the Dollar Store.
This whole project was less than $5.00 and I think it came out pretty cute. Anyone have a craft for that leftover oatmeal?
