Christmas Gift DIY idea

I have a real love for vintage tins. they are like little works of art. the designs of the floraly ones are so gorgeous. and the graphics for the grocery/supplies are so quaint and perfect.
if you are like me, you have about 10 tins lying around (that you are supposedly using for storage, but not really) and you need something fantastic to do with them.
so when i came across this candle making idea from design sponge, i was so excited and wanted to share in case you didn't see it there :).

wouldn't they just make perfect little christmas gifts?
or perhaps someone should start a new etsy shop :)
so head over to design sponge for the directions.
thanks for reading,
