I spray painted an old coffee can with white spray paint then sponged white acrylic white paint for a textured look. I painted on black eyes, glued on a button nose and drew on a smile. Using a sponge, I dabbed on a touch of red paint for rosy cheeks.

The hat and scarf were made from scrap fleece material. Sew or glue a seam on the hat and tie the top with a rubber band and cut in strips to the rubber band. If you want you can glue holly berries to the hat. I stuffed the inside with a present or cookies and gave as a gift.

It can be used each year a decoration or passed on and refilled with whatever will fit.

Hi there I'm new to the forum. Yep a newbie. But that's just too too cute. I have been collecting coffee cans forever. And saying I was going to do some of those for gifts filled with candy and haven't yet . Now I think I am inspired! Thank you! Donna

This would work for Halloween too. Just paint it orange and add a jack o'lantern face, and make the hat out of green fabric like a pumpkin's stem!
