12 Adorable Cookie Tin DIY's

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.

How cute.

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.

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!
