Friends of Speedy TV

Our FOSTV Challenge is to alter an item. 
My husband eats oatmeal every morning year round so I have plenty of
large containers! I thought they would make cute luminaires.
Its surprising how much light a med size candle will make

 First I foil lined the inside of the container to make
 it more fire resistant, then covered with dp.
 I have used the snowman from the Holly Jolly Greeting set
from Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. 
Tearing strips of white paper, adding in layers to make
the snow and adding lots of chunky glitter.
Here is a close up of the snowmen, they are so cute!
 Using a soda pop can I cut out stars using the 
Spellbinder star dies. I then cut star shapes out  of the container and
added the  metal star borders to cover the edges. Lastly using a
 little hand punch I punched out the
 tiny stars around the top. The snowflakes are cut using a MS punch
with a little glitter added to the centers.
Now be sure to look around

Winner will receive this  Set.

  3. Davi, this is really so adorable. Being a snowman lover, it really is special. Hubby will have to keep eating the oatmeal and you can make several of these. :-)
