10 Simple Ideas for Casual Crafters


Covered Tins

If you have a nice collection of Christmas cookie tins, you can put them to good use with this simple crafty project. The object is to cover those holiday designs with colorful fabrics or papers, making them useful for every day. When selecting your materials, keep in mind that fabric is a little easier to work with than paper, which tends to be tougher to smooth out when wrapping the tins. Once you have your fabric picked out, the only other thing you'll need is some Mod Podge (a crafty glue, sealer and finish all wrapped into one product). Follow the simple, brush-on directions on the Mod Podge closely for best results, and make sure to trim any loose bits of paper or fabric on the finished project
