Creepy Creature Canisters




Introduction: Creepy Creature Canisters

This project is by iLoveToCreate blogger Jennifer Perkins!

This week for I Love to Create I present you with some creepy creature canisters.

Step 1: Supplies

Set of Canisters
Sheep (ish) yarn
Aleene's Tacky Glue

I love recovering old canisters and making them into something new. Remember my wallpaper covered canisters from last year? This time I went the yarn route. I had a set of 3 canisters from Ikea just waiting to celebrate Halloween properly.

This project is so super duper easy. All you need are some canisters which I see regularly at the thrift store. Round or square will work. Next you will need some Tacky Glue, my preference is some sort of fast grab. I am in love with the colors in my friend Vickie Howell's new yarn line Sheep(ish) so I grabbed a ball of blue, green, orange and got to wrapping.

Step 2: Cover Your Canisters

Starting at the top or the bottom wrap your entire canister in yarn. You will need a dab of glue when you finish to keep your yarn from unravelling. I wrapped the starting piece of yarn to hold it in place.

Step 3: Adorn With Felt and Yarn

Once your canister is totally wrapped it is time to adorn with felt and more yarn. You could use white yarn for ghosts or mummies, brown yarn for werewolves, green yarn for witches - the options are endless.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Finished Canisters!

Now what kind of sweet treats shall I put in my canisters?
