Trashy Christmas

Look what I made out of trash.

I saw this at Sew Many Ways and thought it was too adorable not to copy.

 I gathered up my supplies.  She used red spray paint, but I didnt' have any, but I have lots of fabric. I wrapped it around the can.  Hot glued it into place and added some buttons for flair (cuz we all need a little more flair). 
 I grabbed a bunch of branches from my dead peach tree (the drought was rough on my yard) and made some reindeer out of card stock. I used the same pattern from my reindeer pillows.  I cut down an old belt and voila-centerpiece. (table runner is from Target if you're wondering).
Now we're off to Chick-fil-b/c I chose to make this instead of dinner.
