Mother's Day Craft

Every year we make a lovely little Mother's Day Craft for the Cubs to take home. This year we decided that a gorgeous recycled item would be great!
We collected all the tins - condensed milk came in these tins - and we painted them a variety of pastel colours.

Lengths of wire were cut which would serve as handles and 1 side was attached to the cans. Hubby Darling drilled 2 holes in each can for me. The cubs then chose which beads they wanted to use and happy threaded them onto the wire. We finished it off by threading the piece of wire through the other hole, twisting it around itself and cutting it off and making it safe.

Just before Mother's Day we will put the fudge in a serviette and place it inside the tin ...... ready to be delivered with an extra big kiss and a cup of tea!

Till next Time
Keep Crafting
