UPCYCLING: Grey Felt Fall Treat Tin

Grey Felt Fall Treat Tin - carolynshomework (6)I’m so excited to finally be sharing some real fall projects. First up is this simple treat can. The combination of grey felt, beautiful, crisp  fall leaves and turquoise is quite possibly my favorite fall combination to date.

My can is a nut can but a coffee can would be perfect too. The leaves are from my recent trip to Washington. I brought them back in my suitcase and they survived the journey.

Rather than use the lid, I like to package my goodies in cellophane or parchment paper. Make sure you seal them up in a baggie first so they stay fresh.

A friend who makes a similar recipe has nicknamed the bark after a very bad drug because of it’s addicting power. Yup, you’ll want to get the bark wrapped up and gifted so it’s not in your house too long.
