I haven't switched my career path, but I am a trash collector (refuse removal technician if you want to be politically correct). No, trash collection is just a little something I've taken up in the past few weeks. A couple posts back I said that I was bringing home empty frosting containers from work. Here's one of the cream cheese frosting containers that took a little ride home with me the other day. I even left a note hanging on my bakery table for the girls to save these if they empty any on my days off.
And this is what I'm doing with them.
These 2 aren't actually finished yet but I couldn't wait to show you. For the brown and green one I used scrapbook paper and the other one I printed out some digital scrapbook stuff on parchment paper. Then I used mod podge to stick them to the containers. When it dried I brushed a layer or two or three of mod podge all over the whole thing.
The brown/green one will have a wood furniture knob attached to the top of the lid and the other one will have a fabric yo-yo flower and fabric leaves attached to the top. I have 5 more of these containers sitting here ready for me to decorate so I'm off to go see what else I can do with one.
Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.
