I found these Christmas popcorn canisters at a warehouse for 25 cents each. Someone must have eaten all of the popcorn, perhaps that is why they were so inexpensive?( for locals, it was at NPS Market Square.)
I spray painted them with Rustoleum spray paint in heirloom white (this is still my favorite spray paint: love the nozzle, the coverage, the colors, the way the spray comes out and they aren’t paying me to say any of that) Since this is thin tin, it won’t absorb any of the paint, so be sure to spray very light coats, let dry, spray some more. If you spray too much, it will run.
I brought out the cutest gold sticker dots from Shelley (you can find them in her shop here – I used the medium for this project) and just began to randomly apply them.
They turned out to be the perfect storage solution for some scraps of fabric and ribbon! I should have turned my lids upside down to catch the rim, but it’s all good.
I bet you may have some leftover Christmas tins lying around…maybe they could turn into some useful storage for you??
