Sparkle Organizer

The photo does not do this project justice, but it's an organizer that is very easy to make, uses materials you already have on hand, is very nice to look at, and best of all will help your kids keep their things in order.

Crafting Time: 15 - 30 minutes

What You Need:

  • washed out can from vegetables or fruit, with label removed
  • aluminum foil
  • permanent markers
  • cellophane tape (optional)

Directions:

1. Cut off a piece of aluminum foil large enough to cover your can.

2. Use permanent markers to draw and color a picture or design on the shiny side of the foil. You'll find the permanent marker colors are extremely vibrant on the foil. Please note that with the sample in the photo I colored on the back (dull) side of the foil in the hopes that the photo would come out without a reflection. Bottom line - the picture still did not come out that great.

3. Wrap the foil picture around your can. The foil will extend under the can and down into the can so it is completely covered. If you like, you can tape the foil in place with cellophane tape.

4. Use the can to keep hair brushes and combs together in the bedroom or bathroom, or to keep pens, pencils, and markers together on your desk.

Editor's Note: This would be a great Mother's Day Gift that children could make for their mothers and grandmothers.
