My mom and I took a trip to Florida this summer, driving so that we could
stop at antique stores and thrift shops along the way. Boy, did we have a great time! From day one we both gravitated towards particular items and styles. Me, I love doilies and repurposed items. Couldn't get enough.
Mom, well, she was into tins, of any kind. We jokingly banned the other from purchasing any more tins/doilies for the rest of the trip but that didn't last long. This year mom made Christmas ornaments with her tins and a few necklaces while I'm still working on repurposing doilies. Soon.
I keep coming across adorable things made from repurposed tins, here's a few of them to maybe inspire your own tin creations......
|This is one of the necklaces mom made using a Hershey's Cocoa Tin. This is also the ornaments she made for her tree this year. Can't wait to see it in person.|
|Love this tin tower. Used here for K-cups but could be used for a variety of storage solutions.|
|Holiday Decoration, could be used year round with a little tweaking. |
|Follow the link for even more great tin up-do's (some repeats, sorry about that).|
|Tin Bracelet. Yes, Please!|
|The link leads to a wonderful Etsy shop full of adorable, unique lighting. Really cute stuff.|
|The possibilities are endless.|
|Another cute Etsy shop full of birdhouses made from recycled items. Great stuff!|
|Beautifully turned into jewelry. She has many more designs if you follow the link and teaches classes in the Seattle area and online.|
|This is my little tabletop tree in the boys loft.|
Have you made anything out of tins? If so, I'd love to see your handi-work. Feel free to share!
