This is my project for the challenges at Joan's Gardens and Sugar Creek Hollow which call for recycling an object. This is how my project began.......
The particulars for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #9 are:
- Use a recycled box, preferably round
- Color theme can be your choice
- Use some Lace
- Use Pearls and Flowers
The first challenge of the new Sugar Creek Hollow is called TRASH TO TREASURE. This week we are asked to take something that would normally be headed for the garbage can or recycling bin and transform it into a vintage, shabby chic or primitive treasure.
My recycled object is a tin for holding pellets for a BB gun. I used the required lace, pearls and flowers and added a little bow. The sides of the tin are wrapped in thin grograin ribbon although I don't have a photo of that.
I had a sand dollar that fell and broke during our unpacking and I've been saving the little "doves" that you find inside the sand dollars in this little tin -- now they have a pretty home to live in!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my "beautified" tin and that you'll be able to join me in sharing a recycled project.
Edited on March 9: Karen asked that I link this project to the Word Art Wednesday site. They share a piece of free word art each week but if you happen to be working on a project with a scripture or inspiring sentiment you are free to link that project. Thank you, Karen!
