Upcycling for Christmas

 I am way behind in my Christmas preparations so was thrilled to see a fab project on Pinterest that grabbed my eye - they used a bean can but I had this can waiting for inspiration so decided to make it a useful decoration.
 Black card, promarkers and a bit of festive greenery from Tim Holtz dies - a little fake snow and here is a Snowmans hat!
Filled with snowballs in the guess of mint imperials.
Wow I loved playing with this and getting into the festive spirit even if we are still in July!

Challenges I am entering this for are
and ABC challenge which is surprise (the surprise is the lid coming off to reveal snowballs)
Hope you are beginning to feel a little festive too x
Thanks for stopping by x
