This upcoming weekend will be my first craft show. I've been working hard re*cycling, re*designing and re*purposing items I've purchased from the local thrift stores.
This white container is a left over from my soap business. I used them as gift basket containers. So to have it come with me to the craft show I had to do something crafty to them. I remembered a tutorial for a large burlap flower that might work and I thought I give it a try.
I was inspired to do this from Tatertots and Jello So I had some toile fabric just hanging around that I thought would be a good match. My top measures 6" and per the tutorial I was to cut a square double the size. Now the instructions was for a burlap flower and my fabric is a little less stiff so I decided to iron on some fusible interfacing to give the fabric some body. I cut the points off of the square to give the shape of a circle. Now to attached the fabric to the container I used a hot glue gun and just turned the ends under and hot glued like crazy.
So after the fabric was attached I then started making folds going all around the container and held it together at the center with pins. As soon as I was happy with the look I hot glued the center to get the folds to stay in place. I then made a matching fabric rose and put that in the center to cover the glue.
So I'm thinking this will pass the crafty judges at the show.
