Hi, my sweet friends!
Welcome to the April Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! Yay! I guess you saw my last month’s post for the challenge, it was my kitchen makeover. But if you are new to the blog you may not know what I am talking about so let me explain it.
The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make something with tins.
Do you think there is a house that has no empty tins? I don’t think so. At least in my case, I have lots of empty tins, most of them of paint and from time to time of food. I don’t really buy canned food but my husband sometimes does, like this tin.
Some times my creativity goes on vacation and I end up on Pinterest looking for some ideas, and I found so many beautiful ones that the problem was choosing only one.
I found this beautiful rustic tin vase from an Etsy shop.
Then I saw another easy but lovely idea using doily and burlap. That is what I call a rustic tin vase! The source is unknown but if anyone knows the author I’d love to hear and give proper credit.
Finally Natalie, from NorthShore Days, made some pretty rustic tin cans and I fell in love with them. She’s talented and she even added a wire handle, but I preferred to have it plain. You can see her picture below.
How to make your own rustic tin vase
Here’s a list of materials you will need in case you want to make your own.
First of all, I painted it white using my homemade chalk paint because I was going to decoupage a napkin and I didn’t want the picture showing through.
Then, I printed the quote on a nakpin using my home printer. If you want to see how to print on napkins click here. I glued it to the tin with a mixture of white glue and water in a 50-50 ratio.
Then I used some glue to add the twine to the tin.
I added some twine to give it a rustic look, and it was done!! All I needed to do now was adding some flowers.
I added some flowers and I had my rustic tin vase ready!
Hydrangeas are my favorite.
I am a huge fan of recycling and tin cans are one of my favorites. You can transform a plain one, no matter how is looking right now in a rustic tin vase for your home decor.
Again, this is another quick and low-cost craft you can do to add some decor to your house, I hope you enjoy my rustic tin vase as much as me!
