Altered Tin Ornament Tutorial

Hello friends!
I found a cool tart tin at an antique store recently.
 I decided to make an ornament with it and I'm sharing the tutorial with you!

I started with my tin. You can find these in all different shapes and sizes at antique stores or online.

I then started picking out what I wanted to use with it.
Paper, stickers and red and a white striped pipecleaner.

I cut out a 3 inch paper circle and inked the edges. I then took a Santa sticker and covered the back with pop dots to add more dimension to the ornament.
The paper and stickers are from October Afternoon's Holiday Style line.

Layer the sticker in the center of the circle.

Take the pipecleaner and glue down to the inside of the tin.
Glue the circle to the center.

Cut out 2 holly leaves from green cardstock. Glue to the bottom of the ornament and add 3 red adhesive jewels to the center of the holly. Now cut a piece of ribbon and hot glue to the back to create the hanger.

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Thanks for sharing this! I had just purchased a box of 36 assorted tart molds to make ornaments. This will help me get started...sometimes I just stare at my materials hoping for inspiration. =D

oh this is soo cute! I will be on the look out for flat tart tins. All of mine are the bigger tins I think they may have been jello molds at some time? Thank you for all the cool stuff you share with us.

This is so cute! I need to find some of those tart pans. They are very popular for crafting and I want to try it.
