Have you visited the really cool blog Southern Institute for Domestic Arts and Crafts??? I forget exactly how I stumbled upon it, but I subscribed my first visit. I’ve mentioned her blog before because this is where I found the wonderfully easy and cool no sew cape! (We brought the one I made for my son on vacation with us. His request!) I mentioned on Monday that Jenny was going to join me for another tutorial on what you can do with a Charlie’s Soap Canister! Without further ado, Please Welcome Jenny to I’m Feelin’ Crafty and don’t forget to check out all the other cool things she’s up to on her blog!
Hi there everyone! I’m so excited to be here today. I’m Feelin’ Crafty is such a wonderful blog! Louise has created such a beautiful and inspiring place to visit. I just love it!
A while back, Louise and I had exchanged a couple of blog comments about Charlie’s Soap packages. I had repurposed some of their old laundry soap bags as snack bags for my kids.
- a Charlie’s Soap canister, washed thoroughly
- potting mix, I used organic
- a sharp object, such as a phillips screwdrives
- sunshine and water
Next I poked holes in the bottom of the canisters with my screwdriver. These are for drainage. Be careful! The plastic containers are hard and slick, and it would be easy for the screwdriver to slip off and hurt someone.
We then filled the canisters with potting soil and planted our seeds according to the directions on the package (or so we thought).
