Not too long ago, I showed you how to repurpose old tins into fun storage containers. While I loved the end result, it didn’t feel “done” to me. I love bright colors and patterns, so I decided to take my upcycled tins one step further. This is how I did it.
- Tins, on hand
- Knobs, $1
- Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up
- Fabric scraps, on hand
- Ric rac or trim (optional), on hand
- Mod Podge, on hand
Total: $1 and up
Step one: Assemble and paint your tin following the instructions in this post: Upcycled Tin Storage Containers
Step two: Cut a piece of fabric to fit around the tin.
Step three: Apply Mod Podge to the reverse side of the fabric.
Step four: Press the fabric onto the tin. Fold the edge over to make it look more polished.
Step five: (optional) Glue ric rac or trim around the edges of the fabric.
Now my tins look the way I want them to: bright, bold, and colorful! They make for a fun storage option in my craft room. Which do you prefer, solid colored or patterned? Have fun creating!
