Since we are stuck at home for a while, ‘Tis the season to be creative! Doing DIY’s has been a really great escape from the downsides of 2020. With Halloween coming up, it’s the perfect time to create YOUR dream spooky space.

I came up with this super easy coffee tin diy. I love the brand Don Francisco’s Coffee and it comes with this awesome size aluminum tin.
Items You’ll Need
- Acrylic Paint – I used Orange yellow and mars black
- Small Nail (depending on size of hole you want)
- Tin Can – I used Don Francisco’s Coffee Tin
- Tea light candles or twinkle lights
First you want to get the wrapping and the glue off the tin. I peeled off the tag and then used canola oil to get the sticky glue off. It sounds weird, but it works!
This is where you can get creative and make a pattern you’d like! I decided to do straight lines of holes across using a small nail and hammer. Use a marker to draw out your design first if needed. Carefully hammer in the nail creating a nice size hole. Continue the technique until happy.
I painted the entire tin using a orange yellow acrylic paint. Definitely do 2 or 3 coats depending on the color you chose. Make sure to let the coat dry completely between each application
Using the Mars Black acrylic paint, I filled in the horizontal lines. Let it dry completely. Use a toothpick to re-open the holes(may be filled with paint)
Use a small tea light or fairy lights on the inside and voila!! You created a beautiful Halloween decoration!
