Tin Snippin

FIRST SOMETHING FOR MY ALMOST MOM WHO ISN'T FEELING WELL..........



My first Monarch of the season--he flitted away to fast I wasn't done taking pics!

Get better "MOM"


Tin snippin........

I have been playing around with these guys......making flowers...jello and candy molds

Snip them up, prime and paint...faux finish and start stacking.....




I used one of my Grandmothers earrings for the center



Close up so you can see the heirloom finish.....love this stuff!!



Old cabinet door....not liking this!! Not enough contrast so will have to play with some other colors of flowers....brown ones drying as I type!!




I'll be snippin and playing with colors!! The brown....not wowed by them....back to the drawing board.....

  2. These tin flowers are great--especially the crackle finish! Are these from the tin can lid pieces you posted about before? I need to get going on my junkle bells project too---

  3. Jill, these are jello and candy molds. We finally figured out the angels are from tin can lids bent up!

  7. This is such a fun and cool idea! How very creative! I have been seeing those vintage jello molds at thrift shops and garage sales lately, but passed them by because I didn't know what to do with them! Now I may just have to "borrow" your idea!
