Great project with Tin Container Lids!

Okay, this is kind of still a work in progress, however, if I don't share it now I might get busy with something else and forget!  I LOVE finding ways to recycle metal containers.  They are a lot more attractive than plastic containers for storage and sometimes they just need a little pretty-ing up.  One tried and true container is the Danish Butter Cookie tin...I find these every week in our recycle center.  A great thing about these is that the top is actually recessed.  I was thinking about what to do with them and went ahead and primed a lid yesterday.  Last night I was sitting at my desk with a random bag of stones and a hot glue gun next to me so I just proceeded to glue them to the lid.  I think it looks fabulous, although I feel that I might do more to it to seal it.

Here's the before picture, one that is pretty familiar to most...
