Aren’t these vintage-looking tins wonderful? Made simply, they have the ability to add a retro touch to your kitchen - and they come up in pretty handy too! Store kitchen essentials inside, or create a lovely plant display with them instead. The choice is yours.
- Clean tin cans
- Printed labels – search online for free vintage labels
- PVA glue
Wash and dry the tins thoroughly. Choose a large enough label or selection of smaller labels to cover the whole of the tin and trim down if necessary. Avoid slicing through any major parts of the design.
Dilute the glue and paste the back of the paper label. Allow the glue to soak in for a few seconds before wrapping around the tin and smoothing down with a soft, dry cloth.
Flatten as much as possible without tearing the paper and you will find any wrinkles will disappear once the glue has dried. When the paper is completely dry re-coat with PVA to seal and ensure that the tins wipe clean.
