Oatmeal Canister Mini Gazebo
Every time an oatmeal canister gets recycled an angel gets her wings! You probably already use them to store or hold small toy and other things and now there's yet another way you can recycle an oatmeal canister. Make a miniature gazebo as a holiday decoration, a dollhouse accessory or just to set on a shelf.
A small oatmeal canister, a section cut from a Pringles can, or something similar can be used to make the cutest mini gazebo. Cut the bottom section of the can or canister off so that it's a little shorter than you want the finished gazebo to be. Later, you'll put on a roof that will add a few more inches to the height.
Wrap the canister in fabric, glue it in place, and allow to dry. Use an object from around the house, like a square of cardboard, to draw windows on the gazebo. The windows can be square, octagonal or other shapes as long as all the shapes are the same. Draw around the pattern, leaving a space between each shape, and make as many windows as you want. The windows should be large and long so that, when the gazebo is finished, it's nearly all windows with just thin strips of cardboard between them. And, one of the "windows" should be cut much longer so that it becomes the door. Cut out the windows and check to see if you need to apply a little glue, here and there, to keep the decorative paper securely attached around the window cutouts.
Twist a piece of thin cardboard, like from a cereal box, into a cone shape. Tape or glue it to secure. Position the cone on top of the oatmeal canister to create a roof for the gazebo. The roof can be painted or you can use something like tiny beads to cover it.
Cut a strip of cardboard which is long enough to wrap around the oatmeal canister. Cover this strip with fabric or paper that matches or coordinates with the covering on the canister. Wrap the piece around the bottom edge of the gazebo to add interest and finish the raw edge.
There are finishing touches you can add, if you want, to make the gazebo nicer or different. To make a hanger, for instance, leave a tiny hole in the cone shape and attach a loop of cord through it. Use a leftover vinyl tile, or even the slick cover of a notebook, to make a more interesting floor.
Place a tiny Santa or other Christmas object inside the gazebo to make it an ornament. Or, set up a miniature scene inside. It can feature miniature people, a table and chairs or other minis. The gazebo is actually very beautiful yet can cost less than a buck to make!By Emma Salkill - Born in Columbus, Ohio, Emma Salk has traveled the U.S. and parts of the world.
