Vintage Tart Tin Garland: A Simple Fall Craft Project Idea

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.

I have found that {for now} one a week is more manageable so that I can keep my family happy, find time to do projects/tutorials, work a full-time job, and keep my sanity at the same time. I absolutely LOVE doing this blog gig on the side
