Earlier this month, I received my final box for the 12 Months of Martha campaign I’ve been working on all year. December’s box was all about baked goods and homemade gifting for the holidays! Which makes sense since as a DIYer I tend to make a lot of handmade gifts in the month of December (including baked goods). The December box consisted of:
- Compartment Treat Boxes
- Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookie Mix
- Everyday Food Magazine
- Treat Bags
- Treat Boxes
- Mini Cupcake Liners (not pictured)
Today I’m sharing my final project for the 12 Months of Martha. I can’t believe it’s December. I feel like just yesterday it was January! Today’s project is all about a quick and easy way to stencil cookie tins. I found these tins at the dollar store and with a little paint, stencils, and brush they can be customized in under 10 minutes!
- Holiday Icon Stencils
- Martha Stewart Crafts Craft Paint
- Glass Patterning Tape
- Paint Pouncers
- Paint Plate
First clean off your surface. Using the tape secure the stencil in place. Dab a little bit of paint on to the pounder and lightly begin to blot the paint over the stencil.
I repeated this step twice and this is what it looked like!
I waited for the two snowflakes to dry a little bit and then I repeated on the lower half of the tin. I wait a few more minutes and then repeated again until the tin was decorated exactly how I wanted it!
Easy as that, I have a decorative stenciled cookie tin! And I couldn’t resist using the snowflake treat bags for overflow cookie and bark gift giving. Head on over to my food blog; Katie’s Cucina, to get the recipe for the Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bark I made (that’s what is pictured in the treat bag.
Here is a pinnable image in case you want to pin this for later. Remember, you could make these tins for any holiday or celebration!
