Here's what I made Mike for Father's Day. It is not my original idea, but Mike got a big kick out of it. Of course, Katherine guessed it came from Pinterest!
Basically, you take a big can (this one held 2 lbs. of peanuts originally), then you cut a piece of cardboard to fit down inside of it. I covered hte outside with decorative paper and put a bow on top, too.
Now Mike has a place where he can throw his pistachio nut shells!
BTW, I am obviously still among the living. Just have too many projects that are 'in the works' and I haven't really had the chance to post. So thanks to any loyal followers who still visit!
