Washi Tape Gardener's Twine Tin Tutorial

Earlier today I showed you my new natural jute string tin from Poundland, a great little tin full of 80metres of garden string with a cutting blade on the lid. To match my greenhouse decor colour palette I removed the paper label and covered it in washi tape in a mixture of solid and patterns in a colour palette of mint, grey, lavender and white. To give it an extra level of protection I applied a thin layer of outdoor mod podge as it will stay in my greenhouse. As the lid is removable it can be used over and over again.

I definitely will have to buy more of these tins to use around the house and in my craft room!

Here's my Washi Tape Gardener's Twine Tin Tutorial...
