Hi there, Friends! I enjoy the challenge of crafting with thrifted treasures. Today I'm sharing a fun project that I created by combining a few of my recent finds.
When I found this Christmas tin at a yard sale this summer, I knew I wanted to do something special with it. I love the sweet scene of the little girl saying her prayers unaware that Santa is watching. It was intended as a gift card box and really isn't deep enough to hold much more. However, after playing around with some magnets, I came up with an idea.
By digging through my craft stash, I came up with this polka dot scrapbook paper. It put me in mind of a snowy night--perfect for what I had in mind. I traced around the tin's lid...
....then cut out the rectangular shape.
Next, I used craft adhesive squares to secure the paper to the bottom part of the tin.
I attached the thrift store sled with a magnet and tucked in some poly-fil "snow" behind it.
Last, I added Believe with letter stickers, a sparkly snowflake and some DecoArt Glamour Dust glitter at the edges to resemble frost. I usually paint on Mod Podge before glittering, but glue would work too.
Now all it needed was the magnets...
...which makes one free standing piece and allows both scenes to be featured.
This would be a fun project to do with little ones during the holidays, letting them pick out an ornament or miniature and the tin.
