30 Days of Christmas – Project 24

Popcorn tins.  They always appear at Christmas.  What to do with them when they’re empty?  Well, if you’re a member of our extended family, you hand them off to MOI!

Empty Popcorn Tins

I’ve been fighting with storage for the playroom since we moved into this house.  I thought these might help corral some of the toy chaos.

I considered spray painting them, but then they’d just look like a bunch of spray painted popcorn tins.

What’s a girl to do?

Fabric + glue gun = brilliance.

I covered the lids on 2 with more fabric.  This did make them more difficult to close so the lids aren’t secure.

The other 2, I left the lids plain because I liked the red.

Just in time to make room for all of the Christmas toys the kids received!  (Our families are too generous.)

Oh this is a great idea! I always see the empty tins at the thrift store- I need to scoop some up!
