Christmas Popcorn Tin Makeover.

Don't throw away those Christmas popcorn tins once you're done with them! Repurpose them! I choose to use burlap instead of paint or duct tape. The pattern on the tin would show through if I used paint, and duct tape doesn't exactly wrap around smoothly since its not a flat surface.

All you need is: 
-Hot temp glue gun 
-Burlap in any size but I am using a jumbo roll you can find in flower department on hobby lobby. 
-permanent marker 
-lace of your choice 

-When wrapping each burlap don't feel like you have to use hot glue EVERYWHERE. It's not necessary. Each wrap around needs about four solid holds with the hot glue. 

-You can use a stencil to write whatever you want. I choose to use our anniversary year just to personalized it a little more. (Write on the burlap beforehand!!) 

I choose black lace to go with my decor. But any color you choose whether it be antique white, white, black is great. And you can always change the lace as well. I choose to just tie it around the top and into a basic bow for an easy change when I got tired of the black. 

Now what can you use it for? Anything! 
A trash can--a pot for flowers or plants--storage bin--what have you! :) 

Currently I am using mine for my craft trash bin. (I always end up with tons of papers access from cutting and random other trash crafting may cause.) This will be more pleasing to the eye rather then a  grocery bag hanging on my chair :) 

Hope you enjoyed it! 
It took all of 15 minutes to make!
