Flannel Cans

I've only had a Facebook account for a couple of years and I can't believe what a time sucker it can be if I don't set limits for myself! Any other guilty parties out there? Before FB, my guilty pleasure was Pinterest, but now its the crafting groups on FB, which is like Pinterest on speed. So.many.ideas!

During a trip into the FB black hole, I stumbled upon this video: diy-holiday-flannel-tin-cans and fell in LOVE! I'm usually not a flannel person but this idea had me jumping on the wagon. You can click on the link to watch the original DIY video or scroll thru my pics below.

The trio with blue sits on my mantel right now.

I did not add real greenery but rather created my own permanent floral arrangements from repurposed material (an old faux evergreen wreath), real pinecones, and floral inserts from Dollar Tree.

Here is a slightly different version with a more neutral color scheme. 

The trio with blue in my favorite...I don't remember what I did with these pictured above. Maybe sold them at a craft fair? Anyways, these sat on our mantel last year in our old home and I was excited to pull them out again this year in our new home.


  1. Oh my gosh!! How fun are these?? Now I need to find some flannel. Fast!!

    1. I was fortunate to get flannel scraps from someone who made scarves. Perfect for this small project. Maybe the remnant bin or even an old flannel shirt that needs new life? Although it depends on how comfy that shirt is, might be a crime to cut up such a perfectly fitting shirt. :)

  2. Oh and what groups are you in? I'm always looking for fun ideas!
