Blog Fest: Craft Challenge
We asked if you had any questions for/about us to answer for our big anniversary. We got a craft question and I thought this would make a great new series, hence, Craft Challenge. Something like Stump the Chump, but with crafts.
Christy said, “Don’t laugh…but what can you possibly do with small cat food cans? They recycle, but there has to be something cute and crafty that to do with them.”
What would we do? I would find a wooden dowel, epoxy, a drill and perhaps spray paint to make a swivel organizer, similar to this one:
To create this, first clean the cans well, removing all labels and smooth the top to prevent cuts. Drill a hole the size of the dowel, near the edge of all but one can. Slide the cans on the dowel. Then, epoxy the dowel to the edge of the bottom can and let it dry. You might have to keep something heavy in the bottom, to prevent tipping. You can cut a piece of picture matting for a top, too. Spray paint to match your decor and fill with paper clips and rubber bands for an office. Sort jewelry, or plant succulents or other small plants, too.
Do you have a craft challenge for us? Maybe you have something you just don’t want to throw out. Or need an interesting use for an everyday object. Let’s see how creative we can be.
There’s still time to ask us anything for Friday’s Q and A post. Ask away!
