Am I the only one who has been loving all the Christmas tins at Hobby Lobby? I fell in love with this retro tray and tin a while back. Last time I was there I picked up enough of them (at 50% off) to make some cute gifts. This is so stinkin’ easy I hate to even call it a tutorial….
Here’s the plate…. PRECIOUS! What do you get when you take this tray and the tin below??
You get a Christmas cake plate of course!
Here’s the world famous Gorilla Girl. I know the Shanty sisters made it famous, but my hubby has been using it for years around our house….. He loves him some Gorilla Glue, and I do too!
I took the top off of the tin and glued it to the back center of the tray using Gorilla Glue. A tall candle was the perfect size and weight to hold that sucka down. I left it to dry for about 2 hours to make sure it was good and stuck.
Here’s the final product. It turned out to be an ADORABLE Christmas cake plate. I am baking cookies and treats for the girls’ preschool teachers and wrapping them up with cellophane. I’m also writing their names and the year on the bottom with a Sharpie, so the teachers will remember my girls.
Another view on my table…It really is a cutie!
You wanna hear about the cheap? Each of these was about $2 to make. The trays were $2.67 BEFORE the 50% off, and the tins were $1.67. Don’t ask me about the $.67. I thought it was a weird amount too…. The total cost was just at $2.00! You can’t beat that for a cute gift can you??? I love cheap, but I REALLY love a cheap cutie! Let me know if you whip up any of these…..
I'm linking up to Metamorphosis Monday.
