Transforming Holiday Tins

30 Dec 2008

. . . While you're waiting to see if you won the drawing, I'll point out that I have a new tutorial up on CraftStylish.

This one was inspired by the fact that I always seem to accumulate a few more holiday tins each year. So this year, I raided my wrapping paper stash and decoupaged them for year-round storage.

Go take a look.

mm.. I like the one with stripes and dots :) it looks like this one just jumped out of my kitchen-self :)


I love those recycled holiday tins. That is a wonderful tutorial which I stumbled. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I appreciate your good wishes. Happy New Year!

I LOVE your blog!!!!!


Love the tutorial! I would have made a comment over there, but I'm not a Craftstylish "member" and don't want to create an account right now... so I'm putting it here for you to see, at least.

If you don't want to leave the Christmas print showing at the top of the tin, you can also use sandpaper to sand the decoration off of most tins. I've had very good luck doing this in the past, although it may depend on the tin. For this project, I would do it before taping. Just wanted to share my .02.

Now I need to run on home and decoupage some tins -- I love me some Mod Podge!


I just love this tutorial, Diane! ^-^
Surprisely, I didn't receive any Christmas tins during this holiday, but I am planning to go get one just so I can craft up this tutorial! Yay!


oh great! I have been accumulating tins too and this is just what I need. Thanks!


This is brilliant! I have a few tins that need to be transformed. One HUGE one from buying popcorn from the boy scouts that would become so useful once I make it pleasing to the eye. Thanks Diane!
