DIY Vintage Inspired Tart Tin Ornaments
I love making these tarn tin ornaments using new or vintage tart tins, jewelry parts, paper flowers, old Christmas cards, and trims. I get my vintage tart tins off ebay or you can use new tart tins. For the backs I use an old Christmas card or scrapbook paper and use a flower paper punch or trace around a small glass that fits in the center of the tin. I then glue the paper to the tart tin using YES glue. I use Aleene’s tacky glue to glue pearls or lace ( I prefer this over a hot glue gun because it dries clear and not as messy) If I am gluing metal jewelry parts, I use E6000 for the best hold. You can also use metallic pipe cleaners for a sparkly trim, I use a hot glue gun for this!
Don’t have any vintage jewelry on hand? I found these rhinestone brooches work well and are affordable, just pop off the pin back and use E6000 to glue or I sewed one on the green fabric yoyo I had (see above photo). To hang, just punch 2 holes using a hammer and nail then thread your string through.
