Small knitting needles, crochet hooks or just about anything else you fancy.

What you need

Pringles Crisps Tin
Vintage Magazine Pages
White craft glue
Sharp Blade


Start by painting your tin a solid color, this will make sure that the label does not show through the magazine paper.

Cut out your chosen magazine pages. If you want to use small ad’s from separate pages, then cut these sections out ready to decoupage onto the tin.

Coat the tin in white craft glue and then begin to wrap around your magazine page. If you are using individual sections then begin to layer them to cover the tin.

Use plenty of glue as it will dry clear.

Use your fingers to push out any air bubbles of wrinkles and always work from the middle out. Cut off any excess length using a sharp blade.

Once you have wrapped your tin, allow it to dry.

Finish off the tin with a coat or varnish, either use a spray varnish or a coat on varnish.
