Keeping up with the love-of-gift-giving, today I’m sharing a quick and lovely way to package the prezzies. These DIY Nutcracker Gift Tins take seconds to make and they’re so fun to give away!

To make your own you’ll need:

In a well-ventilated area, spray the nutcrackers with the gold spray paint. Allow to dry. Once they’re dry to the touch, hot glue them to the top of the tin and you’re all set! Fill the tin with tissue paper and your gift of choice (cash…) and give to a friend (me)!

    I’m in love with nutcrackers (I mean, figuratively…ahem) and gold just made them even better! Love your internet space too! I wandered over here from craftgawker- glad to have discovered you :)
