Today – How to upcycle biscuit tins

What is your favourite? I like a choccy digestive and a  hobnob and how about a good old choc chip cookie.

I do love my biscuits, particularly with a steaming hot cup of tea.

I have been scouring pinterest to find out how to upcycle biscuit tins.

My waist has gone to pot.

I have munched my way through a lot of biscuits recently. I just cannot seem to help myself.

Oh dear me!

In line with taking care of my waste as well as my waist, I have been learning how to upcycle biscuit (and other) tins. Here are the best of the ideas how to upcycle biscuit tins I have come across. I am definitely going to get some chalk paint and make some gift tins. If you find a good idea screen shot that idea immediately. Save your upcycled biscuit tins in the kitchen and on the pc or they may be lost forever.

    Great ideas. I use ours to plan herbs in. They look fab on the kitchen window ledge and make great mothers day gifts
