I had this empty paint can (you can get them...never used at Home Depot for $3), but you can use a coffee can or baby formula can. I covered it in wrapping paper, printed out the title, and added some tulle to the handle just to make it pretty. I think it could be fun to let the kids decorate it, too!
Next I made 8 large pom poms... if you don't know how to do this there are lots of tutorials on line... HERE is a pretty short one. Mine are 5 inches and made with thick sparkly yarn that I found on clearance at Hob Lob. All in all, I made mine for $3!! I also think this could be a super fun neighbor gift!
