DIY Christmas Gift Tins: Chalking Series Project 13

DIY Christmas Gift Tins

If you dislike seeing Christmas projects and decor before Halloween or Thanksgiving, then I need to apologize right now because I have another Christmas project today.

Actually, I have three of them in one post!

I love working on Christmas projects and I can’t apologize about that!

This won’t be a tutorial, just several finished projects.

The first two Christmas tins I worked on were on one-quart paint containers that have lids.

They are a good size for holding candy, cookies, or nuts, and the lid will keep things fresh.

This set of two are available in my Etsy shop HERE.

Because I just couldn’t stop with just two, I made two more!

The tall one is a 12-quart bucket that is a great size to put gifts of clothing, blankets, games, or other larger items.

It’s available in my Etsy shop HERE.

It’s the same type I used to demonstrate the amazing technique for making new metal look old.

The smaller one is a 2.5-quart paint pail.  Perfect for a whole batch of cookies or a plant!

It’s available HERE.

I can’t imagine putting paint in such a cute pail.  That’s what plastic coffee containers are for!

Galvanized Christmas DIY Gift Basket Buckets and Tins to make! |

On all these DIY Christmas gift tins I used the bottom two parts of the Christmas Cheer transfer except for the one with “joy” on it.

All were made using Candy Apple Chalk Paste and Green Envy Chalk Paste.

For that one I used the Peace, Joy, Believe transfer.

I used all three words on the Barnwood Christmas Chalkboard I made.

That transfer is sold out online but I  have just one available.  The first person to let me know they want it will get it for $8.99 + tax and shipping (10% discount).

It’s three designs in one, so it’s a good deal.

I’ll let you all know when the Christmas Cheer transfer and Candy Apple Chalk paste are back in stock.  They should be  back later week this month.

Vaya con Dios,
