Emma's Gift....

 Here's Emma holding the gift she made her mother for Mother's Day. We had to start early, because I helped her , while she was here.
 Screw three international coffee cans to a board. Try to have all the seams on one side...you know, like I didn't do. Doh ! Paint with craft paint, any color. We chose yellow orange, to go with the violas I had . You may have to do 3 coats.....this is the first one.
When it's dry, put some small plants in the cans. Emma put a teddy bear in the center one, along with a bit of pachy sandra. Then tie a ribbon around the cans. We used the burlap ribbon I had bought at Horton's . I may make more of these...although now international coffees come in a plastic can. I think it would still work. xoxo

  5. Susie,
    Emma's gift to her mom is so pretty, and how nice of you to guide her through it. The yellow orange cans are just right for spring, so bright and cheerful. Her mom will love the surprise.

    Have a great week ahead.
