Easter Tin DIY

With Easter coming up, we wanted to create an alternate to the typical Easter basket. I never had Easter baskets growing up—it was just not something that culturally my parents did or even knew about. So it's kind of a new thing for me getting to think about these fun things for my kids now! Here's a super easy way to decorate plain tea tins and turn them into decorative containers to fill with fun goodies for those you love (or those you at least like)...

Easter Tin DIY

You'll need:
-tissue paper in various colors (we used mint green, pink, yellow, and gold confetti tissue paper)
-mod podge
-flat paint brush
-tins of any size or shape (we used these)

Easter Tin DIY

Here's how:

1. To create the abstract patterns, we tore up the pieces of tissue paper in different shapes.

2. Use mod podge to paint the surface of the tin where the tissue pieces will go. Place the tissue on the surface and continue adding more pieces of tissue paper to layer and create a pattern of your choice.

3. Once all the paper is glued onto the tin, paint over the paper with another coat of mod podge. Let dry for 20 mins and add another coat to make sure it's totally sealed in.

4. The fill them with treats for little or big kids alike!

The best part is the tins can be reused over and over again for so many magical little things! And kids love containers so the tin itself is a fun piece for them to get to keep their treasures.
