I was finishing up with the gaudy organizer when Dillon came in the kitchen with a can of pears. He ate the whole thing lol. I was getting ready to put the can in the recycling but stopped myself.
I already had Chris’ drill and bits right there, so it only made sense to drill some holes in the pears can lol!
I started out by drawing a Maple leaf on the can with a Sharpie.
And then I tried to follow the lines and drilled holes all the way around the Sharpie outline. And then I drilled a hole at the top on either side to make a handle.
Once the drilling was done I painted the whole can bright red and then splattered it with white. Any excuse to use splattering!
I gave it a few coats of sealer and then threaded twine with some red wooden beads through the holes I drilled for a handle.
I put a candle in it to see how it looked. It lit up fine but I couldn’t make out what the shape actually was when it wasn’t lit up.
I decided to take the white paint marker I have and play dot to dot around the leaf. Once I did that I thought why not add the “150” in the Centre?
And this is how it looked lit and unlit when I was done.
I will hang this in one of my gardens as well!
