Since I am a crafty person, I see the potential in a lot of everyday items. It’s so much fun to take everyday items and turn them into something beautiful.
Now, I am not talking about everyday items here, but I just wanted to make a small point that I am a crafty person! Haha! So let’s move on! These DIY Tin Ornaments were so much fun to make and I can’t wait till we put our tree up so we can hang them. I really think he turned out super cute!!!

Step 01: Pick out your ribbon of choice and then start to add some glue around the entire side of your tin but only the width of your ribbon. If you look in my photo you can see I didn’t put the glue everywhere. Only on a half of the space available as this was the width of my ribbon.
TIP 01: Take the lid off before doing this part! Haha. I ended up with glue all over when trying to get the lid off later. Oops.
Step 02: Start putting your ribbon on. As you go around the tin make sure you hold the end that is already glued on in place. The glue doesn’t dry that fast so holding this in place will help with a nice even ribbon laid around the tin.
This is where Tip 01 comes in. Making sure the Lid is off will allow for you to NOT mess up your ribbon like I did. It was easily fixable, but still, nonetheless, I messed it up! Haha
Step 03: You will want to add glue to the inside and the sides of your tin. Be sure to spread around as evenly as possible.
Tip 02: A little can go a long way depending on the kind of glue you are using.
Now for the fun part! GLITTER!!!!!!
Step 07: Add a bit of glue to the inside of your lid. This will keep your DIY Tin ornaments nice and secure.
Step 08: Gather yourself some twine. I doubled mine for added strength. Make sure you get enough length and remember you can always cut extra off.
Step 11: Tie a nice little knot at the top for security. For added security, I added a bit of glue to the knot as well.
Step 12: Enjoy you new DIY Tin Ornaments. They are very simple and yet fun to make. you could truly come up with some other amazing ideas that would go well with their DIY Tin Ornaments! I have a few I plan on doing over the next week or so. I’m pretty excited!
