Challenge 3 - Altered Project

Hey there peeps! :) Today I'd like to share with you'll an altered project which I made for Papier's DT Challenge 3! Christmas is around the corner, yes in two days to be exact lol! so if you wana make a fast & simple candy holder, here's a lil idea! ;)

I've altered this steel pail from Daiso to make it a candy can either hang it on your tree (yes tried and tested! :) lol..or simply place it on your coffee table..

It's very simple to make & I'll take you through the steps now:

1) Paint the entire pail with Ranger Crackle Paint (I've used tattered rose here, but you can opt for any other that fancies you! ;))
2) Leave it to dry. It's will give you a really really pretty cracked effect!
3) Heat emboss a music notes stamped image or any Christmas related stamping.
4) Adhere lace all round the pail
5) Punch out a strip of border using any Border Punch and place it behind the lace
6) Stick some pins.
7) And here comes the tricky part...I made this lil paper angel. So you too can make a lil sumthing or you can simply follow this tut.
8) Tie a mixture of tiny pieces of lace & ribbons at the ends of the handles of the pail

Materials Used : Steel Pail, Lace, Ribbons, Tim Holtz Wings Die, Circle Punch, Sequins, Crackle Paint, MS Border Punch, Maya Road Pins, Making Memories Acrylic Paint, Stickles, American Crafts Embossing Powder in Opaque White.

To make the angel:

1) Punch out a circle
2) Draw out a shaped figure
3) Die Cut Wings using the Tim Hotlz Alterations Die
4) Adhere the circle to the body shape to form the angel's head
5) Paint / Distress / Add stickles to the wings for added effect
6)Adhere to the shaped figure too ;)

* Tip 1 : You can dress up the shaped figure with sequins etc just as how I have done for mine
* Tip 2 : You can adhere a magnet at the back of the angel so you place it in any manner you like on the pail.

Nice? I hope you like what you see and it gives you some ideas for Christmas ;) Here's Wishing you ladies a Merry Merry Christmas!!! :)
