The one with the tea tin magnet DIY

When I joined Pinterest over two years ago (and had no idea how much time this site would cost me), tea tins-turned into fridge magnets was one of my first pins. On a recent visit to the thrift shop I found an old rusty tea tin, for only 15 cents. It was love at first sight and I immediately knew what I was going to do with it! It's pretty easy peasy to make, so I'm not quite sure if I am allowed to call this project a DIY. The pictures are pretty much self explanatory. I used the lid too by glueing a stack of cardboard paper in it. With it's sweet little teapot illustration, it was too good to throw away!


Here's what I've used:
  • vintage tin (and lid)
  • magnet that's sticky on one side
  • glue
  • scissors
  • washi tape
  • cardboard

  6. The lid makes a really cute magnet! And the tin is perfect for holding a pen and small note pad for a grocery list :)

    1. I should start making grocery lists, I always come home with things I don't need, and the things I need stay in the supermarket..
