Do you have old cookie tins lying around? Don’t toss them out! Save them, beautify them, and use them to package your Christmas goodies to give to friends and neighbors.


Materials Needed:

  • Old cookie tins, hot chocolate tins, etc.
  • Spray paint (I used Krylon Catalina Mist)
  • Ribbon and tags


1. Rinse and clean out both the inside and outside of your tins. Pat dry with a towel.

2. Place tins on newspaper and spray entire tin and lid lightly. Let dry for 20 minutes and then do this one to two more times until the tin is completely covered with paint.

3. When dry, decorate your tins with ribbon and tags.
