Christmas Bowling Cans

My kids have loved the Angry Birds cans and the Halloween cans that I have made for them. So I decided to make some for Christmas too.  These are going to be great when they are on Christmas break!

This is how I made them:
First I spray painted food cans various colors.

Then I cut out some vinyl shapes with my Cricut.

For the reindeer, I painted it brown and then added the vinyl.  I used the cartride Doodlecharms

For the penguin, I painted it black and added the face with vinyl.  I used the cartridge Create a Critter

For the snowman, I painted it white and then added the face out of vinyl.  I used the cartridge Snow Friends.
