Hanging Tin Tops and Pretty Boxes

I often find tins I love but the bottoms lose their luster, usefulness or take up more space then I have. When this happens and the tops are important to me, I simply hot glue some scrap yarn to the top and hang them up. The two you see are ginger tabby cats and remind me of my Cornelius.

Boxes are very cute too, and can simply be push pinned through the back.

If you find a flat tin and want to keep the bottom with it, just nail a hole in the back and then keep the nail in and pound it into the wall. Tiny nails are all you need for minimum damage.

I even glue yarn to plates, light ones for sure, to hang on my wall. It's easy and quick.

PS: Bread tags work great, too!

That looks good and a great idea to show off art. I have a few of the old metal Coke a Cola trays and i decided to hang them a few years ago. I took a different approach and had some small metal hangers that are put on the back of pictures frames to hang on the wall. I glued them to the back of the trays and hung them that way. I also put put a little bit of tape to the back bottom to hold them in place so that they don"t shift on the wall from vibration from a door closing near it.

Good idea about the door closing. I love hot glue or E-6000 glue, too!

I've done something similar with a few of those beautiful silver-colored and gold-colored plastic trays shaped like scallop shells - leftover from catered luncheons at work, or I guess you might also find them at the dollar store. I put a blob of Funtak on the backs of them and hung one on the outside of each bedroom door and the bathroom door. They really look very pretty!

We call it poster putty as well. It's that rubbery stretchy stuff used to hang lightweight items. I have also used it to keep picture frames and such from sliding on a shelf, and to keep a corner angel in place on the door frame. Great stuff.

Sandi, I was very busy last year and missed this one. I just love this idea but I will also pass it along to my daughter-in-law as she has more of these pretty tins than she can store.

You have great imagination and really put it use.

Thanks - belated - Betty
