Flower Tins

Here's a quick how-to on "upgrading" a plain flower tin into a nice piece that instantly adds some decor to any style. Rose gold is what's currently in, so we'll be using that color for this tin, but you can let your creativity flow and create something for your space. Below you'll find a list of materials needed, along with a step by step tutorial to match this look.


  • Flower Tin

  • Rose Gold Paint

  • Wooden Legs

  • E6000 Glue

  • Rope

  • Enamel Clear

  • Potting Soil

  • Succulents

Step 1

First step is to paint your tin. Make sure you have a nice open area to spray paint. Lay down a piece of cardboard to protect from overspray. For our idea, we wanted to paint the inside of the tin as well. We did two coats on the inside and three coats on the outside of the tin.

Step 2

Next, you have to paint the legs. We found these pieces at Hobby Lobby. Not sure what they're called but they are perfect for this project. We painted these with the same paint. The wood took the paint well, so no need for primer

Step 3

Let's glue the legs on. We used E6000 glue on these. It's durable, sets quick and clear. Put a good amount on the legs, but not too close to the outside edge so the glue doesn't ooze out and show too much. As soon as you put the legs on the tin you can feel the glue just grab.

Step 4

For this next step, it's just aesthetic. We had leftover rope from another project and used the same E6000 glue to attach them onto the tin. This step involves a bit more time holding it in place so the rope doesn't fall off.
