Relabelled vintage tins


Recycled items

  • old tins, cleaned and dried

Also needed

  • vintage labels (see below)

  • sponge brushes

  • modge podge

  • water-based varnish


  1. Vintage labels are freely available online in all shapes and sizes. Print the size you require as determined by the tin(s) you want to decorate.

  2. Using a sponge brush, paint the outside of the tin with a coat of modge podge. Position and stick the labels onto the wet modge podge, making sure the edges are properly secured. Paint a second coat of modge podge all over the tin, including the label. Leave to dry completely before sealing your ‘antique tin’ with varnish.
