Repurposed Tea Tin Flower Vases

Posted on September 13, 2014
Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a good weekend so far! My countdown until the official start of fall continues… only a week left! Today is the first cool day in a long time, and I actually found myself feeling cold for the first time in months! I almost forgot what that feeling is! It’s been the perfect (almost) fall day… cold, rainy weather, a soft sweatshirt, fall baking involving lots of cinnamon (more about that soon!), watching Jane Eyre (one of my favorites!), all with a teapot full of English Breakfast Tea! Perfect. And speaking of tea, I have a sweet little idea to share with you today, involving old tea tins! This is another one of my “this is why I never throw anything away because you never know when you’ll need it” crafts! An arrangement of two or three pretty tea tins filled with different flowers would be so pretty on a kitchen window sill or on your desk to brighten up your day!
This little project really doesn’t need any instructions, you can either simply fill the tin with water and arrange your flowers inside it, or place a small vase (that won’t be visible) inside the tin and fill that with water and arrange the flowers in it, just to prevent any leaks. I used an old Royal Wedding Tea tin, which is my all time favorite tea. It was created for the royal wedding in 2011, and it smells like almonds, coconut and rose petals… so delicious! An arrangement of a couple different sized tins filled with different flower arrangements would be so pretty, I love the sweet, casual look of these!
Happy Weekend, Everyone!
I will be linking to THESE wonderful blogs!
