My junior year of college I lived in a cottage on campus. I wanted to fill our house with Christmas cheer, but couldn’t have a [live] tree and had limited funds. So, my mom let me raid her basement craft studio (she taught toll painting classes when I was younger). My favorite project was the painted tins.
I spray painted the plain tins red, then painted Christmas trees on one, lights on another, and snowflakes on the third. My favorite is the one with the lights.
Some years I’ve tied the three with a big ribbon to make it look like a stacked gift. Sometimes they’ve sat above my cupboards, other years on an end table, and this year in front of my fireplace.
The beautiful thing about storing this project is that they fit within each other!
