Today I'm bringing you a quick and simple project with items you may already have around the house! It's a pretty quick project, with the most time consuming part being drilling the holes. Also, while researching on this project, I came across something I didn't even know existed and I think it just may have changed my crafting life! Read on to find out what it is!!
Stain both the lid and the container of your gift box. In the end, the container will be flipped over (opening-side down) and your lid will be flipped up so the can can (ha, cancan) fit snugly into it.
Insert your 2x4 into the can. This gives you some resistance while you hammer so you don't crush the can. Note: I drilled my holes first, as you can see, but I suggest you drill AFTER, because I found the hammering closed up some of my holes :(
THIS. This is the stuff right here. This is the part where I squealed like a little schoolgirl because this stuff is AMAZING! You can find at Walmart for around $8:
Brush it on your can (you don't need very much) and watch the magic happen right before your eyes! It INSTANTLY tarnishes the tin on your can. CRAZY!!! I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to show you of it, but that just proves how excited I was! I am going to be trying it on all the shiny metal I can find now haha!
Last step! Put some glue on the base of the gift box (open-side down) and adhere the top-side of the lid to it. Your can should fit right into the lid and voila! You are done!
I hope you enjoyed this little DIY project! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to subscribe to stay up to date with new blog posts, discounts at our store, and much more!
