Tart Tin Wall Art for Christmas

7 Materials
1 Hour

Old baking tins have nostalgic charm, especially if your Grandma used them. To appreciate their varied shapes and time-worn sparkle, turn them into art with this easy and simple how-to.

Find an old board to attach the tart tins to. Paint if desired. Experiment with your pattern by laying out different shapes. Wreaths, trees and stars are fun for Christmas.

Once you get the pattern you like, attach with E-6000 glue. This adhesive needs to dry overnight, but is very strong. You could also use a glue gun.

(For more fun ways to repurpose old bakeware, see HERE)

If desired, add sparkle on the board behind using spray adhesive and glitter. You can also add a trunk to the Christmas tree. I used 1/2 of an old wooden thread spool for the trunk on this tree.

A wreath shape is a fun way to show off a lot of the same type of mold. You could also add extra embellishments like a ribbon and greenery with a hot melt glue gun.

Such a fun, easy repurposing project to enjoy as Christmas decor!

    I think these are so sweet! I have a number of little tins, just always reminded me of doll size dishes. This is a wonderful way to display them. And p.s., you go ahead and add glitter & sparkle to your hearts content💖
