Christmas Crafts...Vintage Tins!
This cute card says it all...
I "borrowed" these ideas...lol!
Pinterest Inspired Christmas Tin Arrangements
Repurposed cannisters from Kaytee Jane's House
The moment I saw these candle arrangments on Pinterest I knew I would have to make something similar. Of course, when I want to use vintage tins and cannisters...they are either impossible to find or too expensive outside of yardsale season. Kaytee Jane also used the vintage candle lights for hers...mine were from Walmart. I just love her cute blog...I just became a follower. I think you will love it too. When I get done posting, I am going to go back and look at more of her fun projects.
Cute Little Elf in a Flour Sifter.
The first one I made.
The candle was a battery powered one.
They were white...so I painted them all cream.
Larger Bucket/Tins...Hobby Lobby 2012 Clearance.
Larger plug-in lights.
I found that the small wreaths in Hobby Lobby's miniatures section were just right to use for these arrangements. I wish I had bought more. George drilled me a few holes around the top edge so that I could wire the wreaths to the buckets Vintage Elf and Deer...mix of new and vintage doodads.
Deer Arrangement for My Front Hall.
I decoupaged the tin years ago...I'm glad I kept it.
A little winter scene in a nicely rusty coffee can.
Cute Vintage Kitchen Tin...red and green graphics.
This is for daughter Missy.
Elf, Cookie Cutter, Cupcake and a Vintage Rudolph (not seen)

Cool Muffin Tin From "A Vintage Chic!"
I first saw this on Pinterest...tho' I am a Faithful Follower!
This wonderful muffin tin is from Julie Campbell of A Vintage Chic.
Julie has instructions on how she made it. She also has a cool Halloween version here: halloween Tin
My Muffin Tin...
It took me almost a year to find the perfect grungy muffin tin.
I like the 8 muffin configuration with the hole at the top/bottom.
For this I used images with a more "antique" feel for my Cozy Country Cabin Christmas theme... alliteration is fun!!
Another smaller vintage Santa head and a few rosettes from Christmas sheet music.
Back to the Workshop!
