My friend Diane is hosting a new blogging event called Trash to Treasure Tuesday! I struggled to think of what to post. I wanted to join in the fun, but don't have a lot of trash to treasure items to share. Please visit her blog, A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words to see what others have done today.
After some searching I finally came up with something. A couple of years ago I took an old Maxwell house five pound coffee can (trash) and turned it into what I hoped was a treasure for the person I gave it to.The first thing I did was peel off the paper and then I spray painted it dark blue. Several years ago Rich bought me a drill for Christmas. I've always been afraid of power tools (how girly of me!) but I got tired of having to ask him to do all the work for me. I drilled a hole on each side of the can and added a wire handle. I splattered white paint over the blue can and then painted some snowmen along the bottom. I filled the can with individual bags of snowman soup. Each bag has an instant hot cocoa in it, along with some marshmallows, Hershey kisses and small candy cane. The bag topper can be found here.
Here you have it. My first posting of trash to treasure.
