Decorate plastic storage containers for giving holiday treats


Joy to the world! Christmas is just around the corner so it's time to start thinking about the gifts we want to give and how we want to decorate. I think everyone loves snowmen and everyone loves a message of joy... try this quick and easy idea for decorating plastic storage containers to fill with holiday treats.
Materials:

Joy embroidered letters
3 plastic storage containers
Red ric-rac
Wire or thin metal strip
Decorative ribbon
Snowman tealights
Adhesives, scissors


Instructions:

1.  Glue each letter to the containers as shown - I used interlocking stackable containers to mimic a snowman.

2.  Wrap and glue ric-rac around the top of each container, lining up the seams in the back.

3.  Bend a piece of wire or a thin metal strip accordion style - glue one end to the back of a snowman tealight, and the other end to the lid of the top container. Hot glue or thick foam adhesive squares will work the best.

4.  Tie a ribbon under the snowman's chin and fill the containers with candies or other treats.

EnJOY the coming holidays - a gift from the heart is always a pleasure for both the giver and the receiver. Merry Christmas and may you have a very Happy New Year!
