Altered Tin Cans - Chirstmas

Good Morning!

Sharing a few more altered tin cans.  This time I decided to do Christmas colors.

I used  pattern papers on the size and added my crochet flowers. Then finished it off with rhinestones.

I got these tin cans from Joann Fabric.  I took the advantage of the 20% off the entire purchase this past weekend.  I didn't create these tin cans for any challenges but it happened to fit the requirement for a few of the on going challenges so ..

I am entering this to
