In my house COFFEE is KING! Every morning the first thing on the agenda is to make the obligatory pot of coffee. The kids know that Mommy does not function without it and that they need to wait until I have had coffee before addressing any issues.. (otherwise it is NOT pretty!)
|This is me in the morning.. waiting for the coffee to brew!|
So it goes without saying that we have lots of coffee containers. I hate to waste anything.. so for the most part I save the containers and use them as storage containers for my crafting supplies. But with all of the upcycling ideas floating around.. I decided that it was time to do some upcycling of my own.
I decided to use the coffee lids.. so here is a fun Halloween tutorial for a witch's broom!
Start with 3 coffee lids
Paint the lids with paint (I used black to match the paper and broom)
Use a similar size circle to make circles out of scrapbook paper and cut them out.
Once you have your circles and your paint is dry Mod Podge the circles to the outside of the coffee lids. Apply Mod Podge to the outside as well as the paint will peel and chip without the seal.
I then used my Cricut to cut out the words.. IF The Broom Fits Fly It. Then Mod Podge again.
Once the glue was dry then I hole punched each of the lids, one at the top and one at the bottom.
Then thread ribbon through th holes so that you can make a loop at the top. I attached mine with a bead at either end so that the ribbon would not slip through.
Then I tied ribbon around the broom handle and tie it together. Then tie with a big ribbon!
Here is the completed broom decoration! Hope you try one!
Mr. Pinkapotamus decided that we should put the decoration outside on the porch with our bear.. Here they are together.. Witchy Bear and broom!
I can think of about a million other cute projects to do with these.. so keep checking in for more ideas!
