Pink Saturday...How to Make Door Cans

Welcome to PINK SATURDAY! Last week I shared my summer flowers and I promised I would show you what you need to make the door cans. If you missed PINK Saturday last Week, take a look HERE and see how I used these door cans for my front enterance. NOthing says welcome more than lots & lots of PINK flowers and a wonderful PINK wreath.
What you need for the door cans:
  • Three different widths of craft ribbon (I choose ribbons with PINK!)
  • One ribbon to hang the cans. (I used the solid PINK).
  • Two 16 oz. cans emptied and labels removed.
  • 1 Block floral foam.
  • Four 1" Decorative Buttons
  • Assorted Silk Flowers (If you LOVE PINK use lots of PINK flowers!)
  • Hot glue gun.
Attach wide ribbon with the glue gun around the center of each of the cans. Make sure you turn the raw edge under before you glue it to the can. Add the other two ribbons to the top and bottom of the cans.
Mix the smaller ribbons. Do not make both the cans the same. Cut a piece of floral foam to fit the inside of the can. Secure with hot glue. Cut assorted silk flowers. I like lots of PINK! Arrange by sticking them directly into floral foam. Select ribbon to hang the cans. Cut one length 26" & one length 19". Place one end or the ribbon on the outside of the can securing it with hot glue to the top edge on the side of the can. Repeat with the other end of ribbon, placing it on the opposite side of the can. Add buttons.
Now hang your creation on the door knob and enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by. I'm hope you take the time to try this project. It's easy and will be a wonderful addition to your front door. Visit my previous AUTUMN POST to view a set of door cans you can make for the Fall. Lots of bloggers love the color PINK. Grab a cup of coffee and visit "How Sweet the Sound", to get your fix of the color PINK !

Cold, dark, raining all week. Summer is not going to make it to northern Michigan this year. We haven't seen many days over 70! WOWZA! So, with that in mind, Pink Saturday is especially important for me. I sit back and cruise around the blogs filling myself to the brim with my favorite color.

I'm gonna be decorating cans this week!

♥Thanks so much for adding a bit of sunshine to my day♥

Happy PS, Sherry! I do love those beautiful door cans you have created! I need to make some! It is small enough to use fabric and ribbon scraps! Such a clever idea! Thanks for the How To!

Have a lovely week ahead!
