Pinterest Project: Ruler Holder

I saw this project on Pinterest and I knew I had to make it for my class:

One thing I did change was that I used fabric instead of scrapbook paper. I only had Mod Podge and it works way better on fabric than paper- plus, now my rulers match the mini-curtains in my room!

Here are my supplies:
  • Pringles can
  • Mod Podge (I like the glossy finish type)
  • Sponge brush
  • Enough fabric to wrap around the can (I used a scrap I had- you don't need much!)

I began by passing off the Pringles to my husband and cleaning out the inside.
I then covered the entire can with Mod Podge:

I spread the fabric all of the way around and made sure it was lined up with the top. I cut off the excess on the bottom and put on lots of Mod Podge along the seam. After that, I began covering the can and fabric with lots of Mod Podge, letting it dry in between layers:

After a bit, it was dry and ready to go. I put the rulers inside this morning and it looks fantastic, if I do say so myself ;)

The finished product:

Thanks, Pinterest, for another great project :)
