Directions:
1. Begin by applying a coat or two of white craft paint to the jar or can. Apply as many coats as you wish for the coverage you desire. Remember, the holder will be mostly covered with the leaves, so you don’t need the paint to be perfect.
2. Snip the leaves free from any branches or stems they are on. You will only need the leaf itself for this craft. Apply some glue generously to the back of the leaf, and press it to the can or jar. Hold it in place until it is secure.
3. Continue layering on leaves until the jar is coated all the way around. As you can see we left a little space at the top of the jar.
4. Finish the utensil holder by wrapping a length of twine or ribbon around the jar and tie it into a bow.

Once your glue is dry, your frugal fall utensil holder is ready to be used. Simple slide in any spoons, utensils, even office supplies if you wish. It is the perfect tool for staying organized while being festive at the same time.

Gather your supplies and give this frugal fall utensil holder a try!

Easter Egg Craft ~ Great Kids Craft

Looking for a quick craft that the kids can do when they are stuck inside on a rainy spring day?  Maybe you have a lot of paper scraps laying around that you are looking for a creative way to use up.  This is perfect for both of those!

You will need

2 copies of an egg print out (find a coloring sheet of an egg and that will work perfect.  Its ok if it isn’t plain, you will be cutting one out and gluing over the other one anyway)

patterned paper scraps

scissors

glue

Easter egg craft ~ great kids activity, #craft,#kids, #thrifty, #Easter, #egg, #easteregg, #paper, #recycle

Begin by cutting your scraps of paper into thin strips.  They don’t have to be straight or even the same size.  If you don’t have any scraps of paper around, you should be able to find some cheap paper even at the dollar store.

Now, take one of your egg printouts and cut it out.  DO NOT CUT THE OUTSIDE OF THE PAPER.  Only cut the egg out of the middle.  Leaving a sort of egg shaped frame.  Lay that one aside, you are done with it for now.

Now take your scraps and glue them to the top of the other coloring sheet that you didn’t cut out.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, they can even overlap.

Doesn’t look like much at this point, but it will!  Once you are done gluing the strips down, take your egg frame you made and glue it on top.

There you have it!  A great craft that is perfect for Easter or for a rainy day!  Doesn’t it look lovely?
