great appreciation gift idea!
What You Will Need: An empty 14-16 ounce vegetable can,
cleaned with label removed; white, red, and pink foamy fabric hearts;
raspberry colored raffia; a paper punch, hot glue. The size of the can
will determine the size of your hearts. Cut enough hearts to wrap
around the can and slightly overlap. Make a small label with
"Jesus Loves Me" written on it. Punch a hole in one end of
What You Do: Punch two holes into the center of the hearts.
String the hearts onto the raffia. Wrap around the can and tie to
secure. Wrap the ends of the raffia to the opposite side of can and
string the "Jesus Loves Me"
label onto it. Finish with a bow. You might want to use hot glue to
hold the hearts in place. (Have an adult operate the glue gun.)
* By changing the label message this craft can be used for various
purposes. For example, for Mother's Day, the label could have a
personal message from a child.
