Adorable Yarn Wrapped Monster Canisters

Excuse last week’s neon bachlorette interruption, it is back to all Halloween all the time around here. This week for I Love to Create I present you with some creepy creature canisters.

Sheep (ish) yarn
Aleene’s Tacky Glue

I love recovering old canisters and making them into something new. Remember my wallpaper covered canisters from last year? This time I went the yarn route. I had a set of 3 canisters from Ikea just waiting to celebrate Halloween properly.

This project is so super duper easy. All you need are some canisters which I see regularly at the thrift store. Round or square will work. Next you will need some Tacky Glue, my preference is some sort of fast grab. I am in love with the colors in my friend Vickie Howell’s new yarn line Sheep(ish) so I grabbed a ball of blue, green, orange and got to wrapping.

Starting at the top or the bottom wrap your entire canister in yarn. You will need a dab of glue when you finish to keep your yarn from unravelling. I wrapped the starting piece of yarn to hold it in place.

Once your canister is totally wrapped it is time to adorn with felt and more yarn. You could use white yarn for ghosts or mummies, brown yarn for werewolves, green yarn for witches – the options are endless. Now what kind of sweet treats shall I put in my canisters?

    Love it, can't wait to make some for my home and my friends! I love Vickie's Sheepish yarn- I love all pencil roving style yarns. Thanks for posting the project, now off to search in my stash and house for canisters to wrap. 😀

    Really fun Jennifer! I often use baby formula cans that are actually shaped like this for making fun containers, and now I have some great inspiration, thanks for sharing on craft schooling sunday!

    Stopping by from Sunday’s Best Linkup. These are adorable and perfect for Halloween. I’m going to add canisters to my yard sale/thrift shop list. Hopefully, I will be able to make a set to display next year. Thanks for sharing.
