Floral Coffee Can
One of the last projects I did before changing jobs at the library, was this floral coffee can! I had been saving coffee cans like crazy for not specific purpose other than the fact that I knew I could use them somehow! I had also received a donation of artificial pine branches from an old Christmas tree and had a tonnnnnn to use! It was my goal to use some of these up before I left and I think I barely made a dent even though I had 20 people and each person got 5 branches! Wow! I also used up some random Christmas/winter floral decorations that I found in a box for this because, why not! It really jazzed up the cans!
1. Wrap the can with whatever you would like. I chose yarn because we had a bunch! And it would give it a nice soft look! I added some hot glue at the beginning to make it stick and began wrapping around and around and added glue every so often to make sure it would all stay secure!
5. Lastly, I added a small strand of battery operated fairy lights and a white sparkly snowflake to the front to finish it off!
Yarn Bouquet aka Pom Pom Flowers
Are you looking for something cute and fun for these summer days ahead? Really this craft can be done for any season or holiday, let's be honest, but I think they are particularly cute for summer! It is a very simple and relatively quick craft that just about anyone can do. If you have littles wanting to help, just make sure you supervise cutting and that you handle the hot glue of course!

6. It will look pretty uneven, so just trim around the yarn all over again 😊 Do this step with each of your pom pom flowers.
7. Next, using hot glue, glue each of your “flowers” on top of the wooden sticks. I had 6 sticks but cut 3 of them down to smaller sizes so that they would be at different heights! You're all done with your pom pom flowers at this point!
