Since we are stuck at home for a while, ‘Tis the season to be creative! Doing DIY’s has been a really great escape from the downsides of 2020. With Halloween coming up, it’s the perfect time to create YOUR dream spooky space.

I came up with this super easy coffee tin diy. I love the brand Don Francisco’s Coffee and it comes with this awesome size aluminum tin.

Items You’ll Need

First you want to get the wrapping and the glue off the tin. I peeled off the tag and then used canola oil to get the sticky glue off. It sounds weird, but it works!

This is where you can get creative and make a pattern you’d like! I decided to do straight lines of holes across using a small nail and hammer. Use a marker to draw out your design first if needed. Carefully hammer in the nail creating a nice size hole. Continue the technique until happy.

I painted the entire tin using a orange yellow acrylic paint. Definitely do 2 or 3 coats depending on the color you chose. Make sure to let the coat dry completely between each application

Using the Mars Black acrylic paint, I filled in the horizontal lines. Let it dry completely. Use a toothpick to re-open the holes(may be filled with paint)

Use a small tea light or fairy lights on the inside and voila!! You created a beautiful Halloween decoration!
