Chalkboard Tins

After almost every holiday, Target’s dollar spot goes on clearance. I always try to go to the store at this time to see what deals are to be had. On November 1st, I went early and found these adorable Halloween tins marked down 50% off. At only $0.50 each, I picked up 6 of them. I love the designs on the side and by painting the lids, I could have some cute little storage chalkboard tins that could be used year round.

First,  I roughed up the surface with some sandpaper, to make the paint adhere better.

Then, they got a coat of chalkboard paint.

Finally, I rubbed a piece of chalk all over the tops to prime them.

Isn’t  it cute? The look of them remind me a bit of Erin’s Pet Food Canister. These will make some fun gift boxes for the up coming holidays.

What do you buy from the Target dollar section?
