Cookie Cottages From Tin Cans

When using the coffee plastic cans or even the metal ones, I make cookie cottages out of them, and give them as gifts, with home made goodies inside. I crochet the cottage with windows and a door, even steps and some green for grass. I punch some holes in the lid with a big needle and crochet house tops on them. I use several different styles of roof tops. I then stuff the roof and stitch it onto the plastic lid with the holes.


I have several different types of houses I use and I change the styles all the time, changing the colors, windows, and doors. They are a big hit and look great in anyone's kitchen. They come off easy and can be washed and the lids can be hand washed and dried. I crochet a large rubber band around the top of the cottage so it stays on, nice and tight.

Source: I got the pattern for one cookie cottage years ago from somewhere. Since then, I have used my imagination to create my own patterns.
