INSIDE: How to repurpose vintage tart tins into fun and colorful Christmas tree ornaments using scrapbook paper and ribbon.
Somewhere, at some time, I was given a stack of vintage tart tins. And I stuffed them away in a basket of other random finds. And they have been stacked up in a plastic baggie ever since.
So when I needed a little something extra to add to a small Christmas tree, these old rusty tart tins came to mind. I rescued them from the dark recesses of my pantry, dusted them off and grabbed my scissors and glue!

How to Make Christmas Ornaments from Vintage Tart Tins
I used a shot glass as my template. Trace and cut out circle shapes in a variety of glitter cardstock colors.
Or, you can also use a circle punch. Glue the cardstock circles onto the inside of the tart tins. Let dry.

Tie onto the branches of a Christmas tree.
These could also be used for a mobile or as part of a wall hanging.
