You can find cookie tins cheap anywhere; and wood candleholders. I spray painted my tins and candleholders white; added my sheet music with MOD PODGE. Select a wood candle holder appropriate for the size of your metal container. For this one; I used a chunky type wood candle holder; filled in the top with ROCK HARD so I could screw the tin to the wood holder.
I used a little WHITE CHRISTMAS TREE purchased from Hobby Lobby. (cheap 1/2 price week; tree-in-a-tube). Then made cones from old sheet music. MOD PODGE around the inside and outer edges with mod podge and sprinkle on WHITE GLITTER.
I had some vintage religious little cards I used hole punch to; also used bit of glitter for more sparkle around the cards edges. A clip-on pearl earring for the top of the tree!
This little tin looked sweet with a smaller candlestick. Could fill with shells, ornaments, dried roses, use a chunky candle, etc. etc. Love this easy project!
Yesterday was Friday (my junk-shoppin' day); I will post my lovely finds next week.
