The Holiday Season is closing in on us quick. That means another year of assorted tins full of popcorn and cookies. I have a collection of these tins, they have different cartoon characters in holiday outfits, Dogs in front of the Christmas Tree or snow scenes. You know these tins, I know you do. I keep them because someday I’ll use them, but I don’t because I don’t really want a huge tin with a Golden Retriever in front of a decorated tree in my living room year round, (not to mention that we don’t even have Golden Retrievers).

My new dilemma is my daughter and her collection of tiny little animal toys. There has to be a thousand of them and they do not fit into one carrier.

I came up with the idea of using these tins to store her things. We are just going to make them fit our house a little better.


This is so simple, spray the tin white or with Primer to cover the design completely. After that is dry spray the tin the color you want, we used Ballet Slipper Pink. Don’t forget the lid too. When the paint is dry, apply vinyl stickers or decoupage if desired.

Such a nice storage unit for tiny pieces and it recycles something destined for the trash.
