DIY: Decorative, storage, gift tin

Hey Beauties!

Do you like hard candy that comes in a tin? I know I have been loving this particular brand. Since I finishes it, I just thought it would be such a waste to just throw it away. It's nice gold and looks like a nice decorative piece. That's why I "pimped it up" a bit ;)

This is how my tin looked like in the beginning.

I bought spray, which is originally for rims, but can be used on any material. I bought it because I had a photo frame that I wanted to repaint. I also love gold color, so I know I am going to be using it a lot.

I sprayed two coats. Just make sure to let it dry after each coat. It will help the color to stick to the tin a lot more. You also need to spray as the instruction says. A bit away from the tin, otherwise you might get dots of paint on the tin, which will not look pretty and it won't dry nicely, either. 

Then I found little paper decorative roses and stones in my basement. I gave it a go and laid them on a tin in a pattern that I like.

I used a hot glue gun and glued the individual pieces on the tin. 

And that is a very easy and simple DIY on how to transform random cases and tins into a gift, storage or decorative tins. Now I just need to decide for what I'm gonna use it for. I kinda like it to be decorative piece. But I thought of storing everyday jewelry in it.
