I am getting ready for Christmas and have run out cookie tins. I just didn’t find that perfect one to give to someone. However, I saw something on Pinterest recently that came to mind when I was trying to come up with a gift wrapping idea for some cookie treats I wanted to give to someone.
I had a #10 can, I sprayed painted it with a dark red gloss paint I had purchased at Walmart. Then I found a box and put my can in there and sprayed it on the outside only. Today when I came from work I found some white gloss acrylic paint. I stuck a old tooth brush down into the bottom , pull it out and moved the bristle back and forth to give the can the look of snow flakes on the can. I used some wire and made handle.
I filled the can with three layers of different cookies.. The last bunch were peanut butter blossoms and here and there I would throw in some Christmas kisses to give it some color. I tied a ribbon to one side of the handles, I think I will make a smaller mittlen and hang it down to as a gift card to the person I am going to give it too. Here is how it turned out:
