What I'm working on for the guys in my family

Posted by   + Show Post

I took small paint cans +lids and covered them in fabric that fit their football prefrences.

Now I'm working on bad call bricks (sponge made to look like a brick), costers, and snacks to go inside. I just need to find a store that sell clear bags to put them in.

Quoting ostera:

Thanks for the tip about Oriental trading, unfortunately their shipping to here is often more then the price of the item itself.

They sometimes offer free shipping - I found a code just before Halloween for free shipping on a $20 purchase.  If you need some other things (or get together with a friend to get some things) it could work for you.  


You did a great job on the cans - I love them!

While I don't have many sports fans in my life, covering paint cans in something appropriate is a great idea. I'll have to keep that in mind!

Our Walmart has the plastic bags I think you are looking for, did you try there?

I haven't checked walmart yet, plan for this weekend, thanks.

And the free shipping is usually only for the 48 states (not Hawaii), but I'll check it out to make sure.
