How can I re-purpose candy tins?

I have several (a lot) of candy tins. The size is approximately 4"in diameter and 1 1/2" in height. I've thought about painting them and using them to hold small gifts, but there must be a better idea out there somewhere.Thanks Linda.

    Maybe you can use them to help organize a junk drawer.

      Thank you for that suggestion. Being round, they seem to leave a lot of wasted space, but that's another idea.

    I used mine in the work-room to separate different nails, screws etc

    even painted the item names with the pen paint. Made it easy to find what I needed without opening each one!

    good luck and be creative

      Thank you for your suggestion. I may resort to that to sort my various project items.

  • You could turn them into spice holders by painting them and adding labels. You could take it a step further and attach magnets to the back so they attach to the fridge!

      Thank you Faith, that's an interesting idea. Maybe I could decorate them and give as gifts to friends that may need a spice update.
