DIY vintage tins

How many of you have Christmas tins (or any tin for that matter) that just don't make the cut on being cute enough and will most likely be in the garbage in one week? Well, I have plenty. Here is a quick project to make use of all those tins and maybe even inspiring some organizing. If not, they would look cute just sitting on a shelf. And don't we all love cute.

1. Spray paint your tin whatever color tickles your fancy.
2. Resize (I used photoshop) your label to fit your tin.
I found my labels here. Hugh selection!
3. Print labels onto sticker paper, cut, and place on tin.
Easy peezy, lemon squeezy! (my daughters favorite new saying) Can't wait to make some more!
