Well, this week's unplug your kids theme was cylinder. We spent a LOT of time unplugged this week but didn't work on a project in the truest traditional sense. We did however have a quickie idea to share.I didn't even have time to take a lot of photos but we have one of our finished product.
Wren's birthday party was Saturday, which I will post about sometime tomorrow. (It was really fun!) We picked out several presents for him and fortunately one fit in our handmade gift container.
We recycled a(cylinder) oatmeal container, wrapped it in some cool skull-and-flame fabric, gave it a rope handle and stuffed in the squishy bike seat.
After opening or emptying, the container will make for fun storage in his new room in the new house.
I started with a practice model for Cali, but the fabric was a little thin and I painted the glue on the outside too thinking it would dry clear. It did however it warped the appearance of the fabric.
She likes it just the same. For hers I used a small canister that once held Doritos. : ) and gave it a braided ribbon handle.
This was really fun to give and we could easily claim the most uniquely wrapped gift!
