Welcome back to the last day of Visions of Sugar Plums! I do so enjoy VOSP every single year! I saved the biggest for last!
I wanted to share with you today three altered containers that are upcyled. I am also giving these away! I will explain how to win them shortly, but first I need to explain how to make them!
Here is what I started with! Sorry the cookies are all gone, so step one would be to eat the cookies...
I made myself a pile of embossed tape to cover the tins. The tape is something sold at hardware stores or Amazon for duct work. I personally love using it for projects so I have my own roll.
I also really wanted to use feet on the large canister, but they were for a square box, so I improvised with a square base upcycled base, super glue, and some brads. Wait 'til you see what I did with those icicles!
Here is what the canisters looked like after covering them in the tape.
I then used a burgundy spray paint & gold to cover the tape. The colors mixed a bit and gave it a really pretty look.
The tops are even cool! Really excited about those knobs! So pretty with the snowflakes!
Check out that little metal piece on the front of the bigger canister. I found that at an antique store and thought it worked out well.
