Mr. Cris Pringle

In our previous episode of Tinfoil Tannenbaum, we were waiting breathlessly to meet "Tanny's" tall, bright and handsome mystery date...


Everyone, meet Mr. Cris Pringle. Quite a debonair hairdo, wouldn't you say? The barber elf used that new crimper tool to create a Christmas tree pompadour that would knock Tanny's socks off...


And she'll never know underneath that super plush velvet-tinfoil-craftpaper-raffia suit he was once a simple Pringles can.




Ah, but Tanny's not the only one with bling for the date. Cris Pringle is going GQ with his Christmas party accessory: a santa hat!  



{That's right...if you're going to dress up a Pringle's can to stuff with goodies for Christmas, why not go all the way!}


Oh so very handsome! He's ready for a night on the town! Anyone would think this guy was a great gift.

Together in all their blingy splendor! {can you believe it's aluminum foil?!}

Ooooohh-la-la!  I think they're hitting it off!   Pin It

And are you ready for the next {tinfoil} move?  


Share your creations.

Very cute!! What a great idea, I really wouldn't have know that's what it was.

Oh my! Very fun!!! You just gave me a flash-back...

One year, we gave a Christmas bonuse in Pringle can stashed in a snack gift basket.

We gingerly peeled the paper seal off, removed all the chips, put in a wad of cash wrapped in a baggie at the bottom, ate about 3" of chips :-), put the rest back in, carefully re-sealed it with a bit of glue and popped the plastic lid back on. He was none-the-wiser.

He LOVED Pringles and went for those first. Popped opened the can and began eating the chips...Man, was he surprised when he got to the bottom!!! I LOVE surprises!!!

Thanks for sharing and bringing back good Holiday memories...

Hi Christina!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I love your blog and your approach to creativity. Poked around a bit and adore your holiday decorations and gift bags. I hope I can find a couple hours to make some gift bags and use them in place of cardboard boxes. Your winter wonderland posts are great inspiration too. Following you. Happy Holidays!

This is such a cute idea! Our neighbors are huge pringles fans so I will have to try and score some of their extra cans.

Merry Christmas!

I love the way you did that can, very pretty! I did the same thing, but just used plain paper to cover it, I love all the detail you used!

Ruby Jean said...

I loved seeing your pringle project...what a beautiful job you did creating -- so excellent. Your covered Pringle tin reminded me of a tip on Pinterest...the tins make perfect containers for holding spaghetti. Great gift with a bottle of sauce for that Pasta loving friend or family member....Merry Christmas!I have joined your followers list and would love to have you join me as well. Hugs, Gayle
