Reuse Forumla Cylinder for Festive Remote Holder

I have 'several' of these containers that I started saving when I realized Christmas was coming.  Here is one way I used a container to add a festive, low-cost touch to our living room.

The formula container is this shining silver when you take of the label.  So, I just added a fun collection of ribbon to make it 'Christmasy'.  I put a spot of hot glue on the back of the container and attached the middle of the ribbon there to start with.  Then tying a knot at the front, I used more hot glue to secure the knot to the container in front. 

And now you have a quick, easy, festive, gorgeous, etc. holiday touch for your living room.

What I would do differently next time:
- make sure before cutting that my ribbon was long enough.  I ran out of ribbon to make a pretty bow, but...
- I would probably make the ribbon band on the container first, and then do a bow separately and then hot glue the bow onto the ribbon band.


  1. I think I clicked before my comment was published, so I'll try again. I am amazed at the extraordinary resourcefulness you have shown with this outstanding recycling project. The added ribbons add so much festivity. Beautiful.

  2. How clever! Good thinking!
