As effective and economical this project for homemade Citronella CANdles is, the end result could definitely use some prettying up.
The first stage was to use a household staple, jute twine, around each can. This looks pretty cool and has the added bonus of giving you a place to put your hand when the can is burning hot and needs to be moved.
Still, it needed a bit more burn protection, and colour. Enter Yarn Bombing, the trend for random acts of yarn. While a guerrilla knitter didn’t sneak in and wrap these in the night, they certainly do brighten up the place.
Of course burlap needed to make an appearance as well, being yet another gardener standby and oh-so popular right now. Good old burlap looks great on this can with a wee bit of rust on it.
What better way to preserve the beauty of summer blooms than by pounding them with a rock onto fabric? It might sound a little odd, but flower pounding is my new favorite thing!
I know that’s the first thing I think of when looking at a gorgeous flower. “Hey, I think I’ll smash this with a rock.” Okay, I may not have naturally come to this idea, but when I had the chance to try it at a summer event, I was hooked. This project is a lot of fun to do with kids and it will help you bang out some old frustrations as well.
Flower pounding is a fun and easy way to create botanical prints on fabric. The flowers and leaves dye the fabric and leave a pretty, colorful imprint behind. What you design is up to you!
