I bought some Santa Canisters at Walmart after Xmas for about 50 cents each.
I couldn't resist turning them into something I'll use all year round.

Just wanted to share.

I like them! Are they all decoupaged on? Hadn't thought about grabbing those super clearance xmas tins, but this makes total sense.

this is a great idea - i am not a huge fan of Christmas decorations, but it gets so cheap that it's just hard to resist sometimes!

That is such a great idea! So did you paint it then decoupaged it?

Thanks for all the compliments.  I'm notorious for checking out after holidays clearance for things I can repurpose for long time use.

I sanded the lids first and then painted them.  I used spray adhesive to attach the pictures and then a few layers of decoupage, followed by some gloss varnish.

I thought maybe they were painted, they looked prtty smooth. What sort of gloss varnish do you use? I have thought about doing something like this but I wanted to make sure it's a finish that is safe and looks good, etc.!

zatanna:  I can't find the bottle of varnish I used.  I think I trashed it when I completed this project (last month).  I don't even remember where I bought it.  Sorry. Sad
