Sunshine Kids Craft Corner - Super Fun American Girl DIY Party Idea

Our crew has had the blessing of celebrating more then 8 family birthdays over the past two months! This was a super fun DIY party idea that the girls and I worked on together and they are so cute! These little guys can be used to so many ways from centerpieces, party favors and more! Save those cans and set down with the little one's for this one. This is a great and easy way to add a little extra fun as a Thanksgiving Table Idea too !

Supplies: Empty Cans All Shapes and Sizes
 Your Favorite Paper Modge Podge
 A paint Sponge 
Ribbons Embellishments of Choice 

Tips: Make sure and use an Edge Can Opener so there are not sharp edges left on the can. Also a great trick to getting those labels off the cans is to run them though the dishwasher first~ Once they come out any label left will peel right of. 

Step 1: Measure your Can Size Height and Diameter and Cut Your Paper of Choice to the appropriate size

Step 2: Using your Paint Sponge Cover the Entire Can with Modge Podge 
Step 3: Wrap the can with your cut paper 

Step 4: Repaint the entire can with paper with the Modge Podge. 

Make sure to cover it good. 

Step 5: Set aside to dry 

Step 6: Embellish your fun can with Ribbons, Rhinestones or other Die Cut Shapes. This sample was made as a party favor for an American Girl Themed party. 

We added a little hanging ribbon on the top and it's just the perfect size to hold all those fun Doll Brush and Hair Accessories

This one is a Great Idea for a 75th Birthday Party!  These were crafted as  Floral Vases to hold flowers for a Daisy themed party. Add a little Personalized Table Confetti FromBeths and its a super cute, inexpensive and fun craft to add just a little something handmade to your event. Don't be shy! Save those can and give them a try.

You will have so much fun!
