The Monday Project: Quick Up-cycle Crochet Hook Cannister
Chaos sometimes leads to awesome things but more often leads to big messes. Occasionally it can lead to both!
My house… seriously. Disaster does not describe it. Friday we decided to swap around bedrooms, Saturday K. E. and J. were in a fever of new room mania and sadly all my our stuff has been vomited all over the house. But this huge mess lead to my mess of crochet hooks and a hoarded Lifesaver tin falling side by side. Who knew Christmas Lifesaver tins were the perfect size for crochet hooks?
So our hoarding tendencies… oh man do we hoard… has lead to an easy up-cycle project.
Lifesaver tin $0 (rescued from the recycling)
Paper Art $0 (Obey Crochet calendar page free with January’s issue of Simply Crochet)
Double Sided Tape $.05 (whole roll $2.50)
Its pretty self explanatory but trim your art to the size of your tin leaving an overlap at the back. Stick double sided tape on both sides of the under-lapping edge of the art and on the back of the over-lapping (is that a word?) edge. Line up your tin into the center of the paper carefully and stick down the edges. You could add some Washi to pretty it up!
I intend to cover it with sticky plastic cover film when I eventually get myself out of this mess and into town. On the bright side it is getting slowly slowly better.
