DIY Gift: Hot Cocoa in a Tin

(This post is sponsored by Pirouline Cookies)

If you're new here, I post recycled Pirouline tin crafts every month! You can find them all here.

You know those "recipe in a jar" that people make? Where they fill mason jars up with the ingredients to make a desert or a meal and then gift them to friends? I've always thought those were cute, so today I'm making a "recipe in a tin"!

I am filling my "recipe tins" up with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows, because I love hot cocoa. Feel free to fill your tins up with whatever recipe is your favorite!


  • Empty Pirouline Cookie Tins
  • Copper Metallic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Twine
  • Paper Tags
  • Marker
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Adhesive

Step 1. Begin by painting your tins with metallic paint. I'm using Americana Decor Metallic paint by DecoArt. Paint both the tins and the lids.

Step 2. Write out your recipe instructions on the paper tag. Cut leaves out of patterned scrapbook paper.

Step 3. Wrap twine around the top of the tin and tie on the paper tag. Adhere the leaves to the twine.

Step 4. Fill your tin up with your ingredients and give them away!

Make these fun recipe tins as favors for your Thanksgiving guests!
