When It is Cold Outside It is A Perfect Time To Craft Inside

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am ready for a little warmer weather.  Most people think that when you live in Florida its always warm weather with swaying palm trees,  well the palm trees are swaying but let me tell you that we have had freezing weather for two nights, and during the day it didn’t get into the 60’s.  I know others have it really bad, but it’s cold 🙂

Anyway, when it’s cold outside you want to stay inside and what a better time to craft.  So as I was in the kitchen making myself a cup of hot chocolate, I looked at my trash can and got a great idea.  Let’s decorate a plain white trash can into a one of a kind trash can.

I didn’t want to make anything permanent just in case I was going to change the color accents in the kitchen so I decided to use the repositionable  Joans Craft World vinyl for this project. Since my tablecloth has all palm leaves on it,  I decided to make a palm tree using the Cricut Expression along with the Life is a Beach cartridge.


Just using two sheets of the Joans Craft World, Beach Theme, Repositionable Craft vinyl (light brown and celadon),  I made an ordinary trash can into a really fun and creative one.

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
