Welcome to the Thanksgiving Blog Hop!!
We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature everything to be thankful for!! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- From decorations to gift ideas and more, we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!
If you've hopped over from Jearise, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our Trick-or-Treat FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog because... It's always a TREAT to start at the start!! :) This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (you'll find the entire line-up below my post)!!
For the hop today, I've created decorative nesting canisters. I used my Cricut machine to cut the deisgns. The canisters were bare, unfinished wood. I made up my own custom colors of inks using a combination of Tim Holtz and another brand(sorry I forgot the name) inks to stain the wood. I then cut the the leaves out using several Cricut cartridges(I'll add these later), the sizes are 3" 3.5" and 4" respectively for the canisters. I then used Tim Holtz distress inks in ______ Colors(I'll add these later) to ink the leaves. After the leaves were sufficiently colored, I used a variety of brands of stickles to add glitter the leaves. I then used Mod Podge to adhere the individual leaves to the boxes and coated the sides of the boxes with Mod Podge.
I chose to do these canisters because we love to decorate for all the holidays AND my mom collects canisters. I thought she would enjoy a hand made set for her collection. These canisters fit nicely with our fall and Thanksgiving decorations even though we've all been a little too sick and too busy with doctor's appointments to be able to decorate this year. I hope you all enjoy my canisters, I enjoyed making them.
