DIY Stocking Stuffers


This year, I decided to spread some extra Holiday cheer with quirky stocking stuffers. I decorated small tins with glittery, decorative tape and filled them with jolly things to stuff inside our stockings. You can easily decorate and fill tins too in just a few simple steps. The possibilities are endless.
Supplies:
Solid colored Holiday tins
Decorative craft tape (This can be purchased at any craft store. I used glitter “Trim” tape that I purchased for under $6)
Scissors
Things to stuff inside the tins: gift certificates, candies, cookies, etc.
Step 1
Choose a template for the design of your tin. I created my own with specific gifts in mind.
Step 2
Cut out your template design then measure a strip of tape the length of your design
Step 3
Snip off the piece of tape you’ve measured then trace the template onto the tape (I flipped my tape over then traced onto the back)
Step 4
Cut out the design you traced onto the tape, peel off the adhesive backing and stick onto the center of the top of your tin.
Step 5
Your tin is now decorated! Wasn’t that simple? Now, fill it with fun things. I was feeling extra merry so I related each gift to the design on the tin. ‘Tis the season!
Happy holidays!
Pin It!

Merry Christmas, Caroline! I feel like I'm coming up for air after the longest, busiest time. Your family is adorable, and I love your ideas!

Where did you find the glitter tape? I've been calling craft stores and haven't been able to find any!

Emily, I found the glitter tape at Micheals in Maryland. It was actually sold in the woodworking section as "Trim" Tape. I will see if I can find some (perhaps online for you) so stay tuned. :)

Update:I've received a few emails about the trim tape--apparently it's not everywhere. I purchased my tape--called "Trim Accents" (made by DCWV Home out of Provo Utah) from a Miceals at 7665 Arundel Mills Blvd Hanover MD 21076 phone 410-796-2472. My udnerstanding is that this is a product sold in Micheals but perhaps it's not everywhere. :( I hope that helps!
