As the leaves start to fall along with the temperatures, we all have cold and flu season to look forward to. My family and I have already gotten our flu shots, but with 2 kids in school it’s inevitable that someone is going to have a cold or flu through-out the winter. I thought it would be fun to create a cute little Cold and Flu tray to set aside just for those days when someone is feeling miserable.
Using a couple of bar jars, I stenciled onto a burlap ribbon to create 2 jars, one for cough drops, and one for throat lozenges. I then glued the ribbon to the jars and fastened some rick-rack around it. Washi tape around the lid, and a matching scrap book paper inserted in the top of the jar finished them off.
Then I used a cute barn tray my husband made, along with a vintage handkerchief from my mom and filled it with some cold essentials like; kleenex, saline spray, lotion, and a thermometer. Now when someone gets sick I can just pull out the tray and leave it on the bedside.
Don’t you think this would help you feel just a little better?
I hope I never need this, but chances are, I will!
