Joy to the world! Christmas is just around the corner so it's time to start thinking about the gifts we want to give and how we want to decorate. I think everyone loves snowmen and everyone loves a message of joy... try this quick and easy idea for decorating plastic storage containers to fill with holiday treats.
Materials: Joy embroidered letters 3 plastic storage containers Red ric-rac Wire or thin metal strip Decorative ribbon Snowman tealights Adhesives, scissors
Instructions: 1. Glue each letter to the containers as shown - I used interlocking stackable containers to mimic a snowman. 2. Wrap and glue ric-rac around the top of each container, lining up the seams in the back. 3. Bend a piece of wire or a thin metal strip accordion style - glue one end to the back of a snowman tealight, and the other end to the lid of the top container. Hot glue or thick foam adhesive squares will work the best. 4. Tie a ribbon under the snowman's chin and fill the containers with candies or other treats.
EnJOY the coming holidays - a gift from the heart is always a pleasure for both the giver and the receiver. Merry Christmas and may you have a very Happy New Year!
