A Popcorn Tin Makeover for me has been in the works for years, every time I saw where someone transformed one of the 3-popcorn goodies, I’d say to myself…one of these days.

This year while shopping with my grandsons one of them grabbed a tin, ate almost all the candied popcorn and left it never to be touched again. This diy popcorn tin makeover is so easy! That is until this weekend, I saw it sitting there with it’s stale orange dusted popcorn and I knew exactly what I’d do with it.

    1. This is an awesome reason to keep those popcorn tins! I can’t even tell you how many I’ve tossed over the years. If only I had just one of them now….love this!

    2. I love the repurposed popcorn tin. So easy. But I never thought of it. Thanks. Can’t wait to transform the tin I got as a Christmas gift!

    3. I don’t have any of these! We had one here over the holidays–I think Jamie and Andy took it home with them. She throws everything away. I’m sure it’s long gone.

      Love you popcorn tin makeover Debbie. You’re so clever and creative!
