simple stuff!

cans

Found this cute idea on pinterest and knew I had to do it.  so I googled vintage pumpkin labels, ran to walmart and bought 4 cans of cheap green beans (the cheapest, because I was not going to eat them.. I threw them away.  I hate canned veggies! )  I only took pictures of the cans above just for the pictures sake!
anyways.. emptied the cans and washed them printed the pics and cut them out glued them to the cans, poked holes in the sides, attached the wires and Ta Dah!  heres the finished product!

pumpkin cans 
Except.. really I'm not done yet.  I'll be embellishing them a bit when I get home from work tonight.  I think there needs to be a pumpkin face peeking out over the top of one of the cans... or something..  im not sure what I'll be doing.. but something!  
so see yas later.. have a great day.  its supposed to be summery here today.  highs near 80! woohoo!!
now if I just didnt have to go to work!

Isn't it terrible that my favorite vegetable is canned green beans? lol! I love the pumpkin can idea...I have some cans with vintage labels stacked in my kitchen. So much cheaper to make your own!
