Y’all! I am soooo ready for Fall! At least the Fall temperatures! Lol. It’s still pretty hot and humid here in Louisiana, but here in the craft studio, we are feeling the Fall vibes. Lol. I started last week working on some Fall ideas for The Grove in Shreveport and the Etsy revamp. I don’t know about y’all but I have tons of products and things purchased for those projects that you’re just going to get to eventually. Well, the time has come. Todays make is these cute little tins. I’m almost hoping they don’t sell so that I can keep them here. Haha. Let me walk you through a quick tutorial in case you want to do some for your house.
I got the inspiration for this cute idea from something I saw on Etsy. I purchased these cute little tins on Ebay. Beware, they can get pretty pricy so you have to put a watch on them. These McCormick tins were actually in great condition. I actually had to dump the spice out of them. They were a little bit too clean for me so I took my little sanding tool and roughed them up a bit. Then I took my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Archival and dirtied them up a little. The Schilling tin was already a little dinged up so i just inked it a little.
I dug out my bottle brush trees to see what I had in my stash. I already had some that were painted green from last Christmas, so I painted some black and orange and brown, and purple and lime for just in case. I took the black one and decorated it with the new Tim Holtz Confections Candy Corn. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Once the trees were good and dry I started assembling the little decorations. I used 3-in-1 glue to attach everything. I did have to cut out the larger trees just a bit to make the smaller trees fit snug on the tin. For the Fall one, I added a tiny hay bale and pumpkin that I found at Hobby Lobby. (40 off, y’all!! Love it!) And of course to finish it off, I added some really cute black and orange plaid ribbon that I found at Michaels. So one of each of these will be going to The Grove in Shreveport and the other one of each will be going on Etsy. If you’d like to check out my etsy store, there is a link here on the website, but if you want to check out the tins, just click on the picture.
I think that these little tins turned out super cute. They were really simple to put together. Tim Holtz Ideology helped out a lot with bottle brushes and candy corns, and of course his Distress Spray Stains. And again, the few things that I picked up on sale at Hobby Lobby. I just love them. I hope you do too.
Until next time,.

Aww so much fun! Just curious did you put anything in the tin to weight it down?
Thank you. No. I didn’t think about that. But the trees don’t way too much. Hopefully it won’t be a problem.
