Upcycling Magic

As any paper crafter knows, it's an expensive hobby.  Luckly we are a creative and crafty bunch and tend to find was around paying full price or even using the "store bought" versions of things that we want.  With Thanksgiving now behind us, I figured it was a good time to show off my holiday centerpiece before I packed it away.

I am a very simple person so most of my crafts and projects tend to have the same easy feeling.  For this wonderful centerpiece I turned seven old soup cans into a festive work of art!  I chose all fall colors for the centerpiece and added a simple flower arrangement to the top to finish it off.
With a few quick and easy steps I wrapped each can with cardstock adorn with fall leaves then wrapped a strip of burlap around the bottom of each.

 To mimic the floral arrangement I made a few dozen cardstock roses to trim the bottom of the centerpiece.  And voila!  I beautiful holdiay centerpiece.
