Can anyone suggest different ways to decorate milk jugs as door stoppers?
How about hot glue and buttons? Or, spray paint it one solid color and then spray paint holding the can further away, using another color...this makes a "spritz" look. Or, burn different colors of candles and pour their hot wax over the bottle.
Hope these help.
Make a fabric sack or just wrap some pretty fabric around it & tie with a pretty ribbon :) You could also put some nice artificial flowers standing in it. Fill with sand & make a great & attractive doorstop!
I am going to glue the flower parts onto the stems. I will probably put math problems down the stems, with notes on them, especially fractions.
I want to use a button to be the center of the flower, so I can sew the flower to the stem. Any ideas on colors?
Note: you put the little flower shapes under hot water to bend them and then when you get them how you want you let cold water run over them for a second or two.
