Dollar store crafts: DIY Storage Tins

If you’re a crafter, you’re always trying to figure out where to put all your stuff.  If you’re a budget crafter, you’re trying to figure out how get organized without breaking the bank.  If you’re a fashionista budget crafter (let’s call it fabucrafter….just humor me), then you’re looking for attractive, inexpensive storage options.  Well, this fabucrafter has got you covered.  I recycled old tins to make cute, colorful storage containers.

DIY Storage

Project estimate:

  • Tins,  on hand

  • Spray Paint,  on hand or $1 and up

To make your own storage tin:

Storage jar DIY lid

Step one: Drill a hole into the lid of the tin.

Step two: Attach the knob to the lid.  I found the knobs pictured in the dollar bins at Michael’s.

Step three: Prime and paint the tins.

Your pretty storage tins are ready to be filled!  I plan to use mine in my craft room, but since I didn’t paint the inside they could be used for other things, too, like the Halloween candy you took from your kids.  So start saving those tins, all you fabucrafters, and have fun creating!
