When I found a set of vintage mini tart tins in a thrift store, I bought them not knowing what I’d end up using them for. I just knew they only had a 10% chance of being used to make tiny tartlets. Instead of making it to the kitchen, the tins were used to make a simple fall craft project, a garland with printable typewriter keys. This is the easiest craft project I’ve created in a while and the best thing is, I can take it apart and reuse the tins later on.
Supplies for making the garland:
Tart tins (mine are about 2-1/4″ wide at the opening and 1-1/4″ wide at the base).
Free printable typewriter keys found on Altered Artifacts
White cardstock paper
Masking tape or double-sided sticky tape
I hot glued the twine about mid-way on the side of the tin and spaced them apart evenly.
Next, I enlarged the printable by 40%, cut out the 1″ circles and attached them with masking tape.
Quick and easy, and I can reuse the tins at Christmas time. I’m thinking they’d make adorable ornaments, but if I happen to take up tart-making, I promise I’ll share the recipe with you, too. As a mom of 3 boys, I’m more likely to be making cake, cookies or brownies.
Later on this week, I’ll show you another simple and unique fall craft project using pumpkins. I love thinking out-of-the-box and it’s something I haven’t seen on Pinterest yet.
Our summer was so mild this year that fall snuck up on me. Have you started any fall decorating projects?
