So the other day I made this jute ball out of a basketball and a floor mat. Remember?
So I have a HUGE amount of jute floor mat material left over…
…and I’m trying to figure out what the heck to do with it all (besides make another large jute ball for a future giveaway – check back frequently for deets!).
Okay, so anyway, I’m trying to figure out what else I can hot glue this stuff too and the closest thing within reach was a just-washed can from beans or something. So natch’ I grab the can and start gluing. Wound you expect any different?
You know what? I actually really like it! A lot.
There are so many uses for it, but I knew right away exactly where I wanted it.
It’s absolutely perfect for my kids’ art pencils.
My daughter LUVs it! And the best thing is, it is so so so so durable!
Next on the agenda… a few more to match for markers and pencils. I even have a few smaller cans (from tuna) that will be perfect for their little eraser collections.
YOU can do this! Trust me! Just try it.
*WARNING* I use a Pampered Chef can opener that removes the entire lid instead of cutting it off so there are NO sharp edges. MAKE SURE you have a can opener that does NOT leave sharp edges!!!
