It’s been a little while since I’ve posted any small DIY’s, and that’s because it’s been awhile since I’ve done one! Funny about that… ahem. Anyway. Here goes! (On a scale of 1-5 of hardness this DIY rates “It’s so easy my 2 year old could help, and maybe even do it better than me”)

Since my Home Office is now awesomely lovely, and I had an empty Biscotti tin and some pretty fabric, I thought I might make a cute pencil tin to keep my desk tidy!

Step 1. Find yourself a tin.

Step 2. Find some pretty fabric scraps, big enough to go around the tin twice

Step 3. Give it a good coat of Mod Podge or similar gluey type stuff, and wrap your fabric around the tin, smoothing it down as you go (go around the tin twice to make sure the tin graphics don’t show through the fabric). Tape the fabric over the top lip of the tin and inside with some duct tape.

Step 4. Tada! You’re done. That was easy right? Now go do one yourself and show me how you went!
