If you've seen this done before, forgive me, I've not seen it on any other blog, but that's not to say this is an original idea. I've loved the pretty doggie treat bins I've seen in some of the stores and thought it might be fun to make my own. Plus, this is a great way to recycle.
So here we go, in 3 easy steps.
Find a popcorn tin, or recycle one you've used. Make sure though, that the tin does not have a 3d design, meaning one that has impressed images on it, it must be smooth. I got mine at a junk shop for $2, and made sure there were no dings or dents.Step two: Paint it, any color you fancy. I chose glossy white.
Step 3: After it's dry, simply stencil it. I chose my Dog's name, Kai. But you can stamp images on it, paw prints, etc.
You can also use this for birdseed, cat food, anything really. The sky's the limit here, and it's super inexpensive and a fun project for the kids. This tin will hold dogfood for Kai. I also purchased an inexpensive plant holder on wheels so I can roll it around, but it was the wrong diameter, so I have to exchange it. You can also sit it atop a fancy iron plant stand if you like. Use your imagination, and be proud that you recycled.
Thank you for the well wishes, and kind comments. I am always touched by your sweet words. xxx tami
