Elmo Can

Just finished the project I started tinkering with a couple of weeks ago. I had a big coffee can and didn't know what to do with it. We have a big Elmo chair the kids totally love and I decided to recreate the chair into a can. I made one already that the kids use for small toys and they argue over it, so I'm making another one so they each have one!

I used felt with adhesive to cover the can as well as for the nose and mouth. I used red furry trim around the top of the can since the felt didn't go all the way to the top. I think this one is going to be used for an Elmo themed party we're going to this Saturday. Olivia bought her friend Sophia something cute for her birthday and wants to put it in the can. We got Sophia something else but Olivia is very insistent on putting her thing in the can. :)

This is really cute, Sara!
I just wanted to stop by to say hello and thank you for visiting my blog and entering my OWOH contest.
I had a lot of entries and I am still trying to get back to everyone to say hello.
I have heard of people who won multiple prizes! I didn't win any :(
Your blog looks great and I've bookmarked it so I can come back later and visit longer.
My daughter LOVED Elmo when she was little (and so did I).
Best,
Dawn

Hi Sara! First off, thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. Please go back and take an easter egg count guess! I would love for you to enter the contest!
Secondly, LOVE your can!! OMWord, could this be any cuter? I thought I'd link up some cute ideas that I found while coming up with some Elmo ideas for a friend's DD.
