I had an empty Betty Crocker buttercream tub. (I usually make my own buttercream, but the Lumberjack bought some for the birthday cake he made me in December. He thought it was the best bet, after the year before he tried squirty cream which soaked into the cake, aaww. Still appreciated, though!)
Worth mentioning too - those buttercream pots are dangerous!! The temptation to just tuck in with a spoon is too great for a mere mortal such as myself to resist!
Anyway, back to the project... not that it needs much explaining.
1. Remove the label from the tub and wash thoroughly.
2. Pick some coordinating rolls of washi tape from your collection...
3. Wrap around the tub in stripes, overlapping very slightly at the back.
Done! It couldn't be easier.
An unnecessary number of pictures of the finished pot for you - you'd have got the idea with just one!
It's a great project for when you feel like some instant results, and a useful item too.
And, for fun, here are my Valentine's tulips in the early morning sun back in February - the sun was catching them beautifully.
