Tin Ornament Plant Pokes

Every year I buy these Mexican tin ornaments, hang them on my tree, and then use them as gift tags for Christmas day. I love them so much that I use them all year round in different forms. For example, for this project, I simply snipped off the hang tag from the top and glued the ornament to a chopstick. Hello! Instant plant poke!

Other ideas:

– Hang several from string to make a banner.
– Use them on a cake
– Use as the focal point for a shadow box, or a collections of boxes!
– Glue on the top of a gift box.
– Glue together in a circle, add a base for a fun candle lantern.
– Affix to the front of a greeting card.
– Use a paint pen to use as a gift tag (that’s what I do).

Peace, love, and glitter!

  1. MY favorites! They are a huge influence on my own tin work. I use them for so many things just as you do and will be linking in May – (this month!). I just wish I could get the brilliant colors they do in Mexico. Yhe colors delight my eyes!

  2. Do you have a turtorial on how to make these and paint them? I was wondering what would be the best paint to use on them. Love all of your craft ideas, they are all so festive and bright.
