DIY Valentine’s inspired baking tin signs

Today I’m showing you how to make these easy and fun DIY Valentine’s inspired baking tin signs. I kinda have a crush on these, I didn’t want to use them for baking…but for decorating. One can’t have enough signs in the house! Also, with Valentine’s Day coming up soon, I really like having some fresh and fun decoration in the house. 

Both are kinda Valentines inspired…love of coffee..well, I do love coffee…and XO, you get it!

DIY Valentine's inspired Baking Tin Signs


                                                            The “XO” sign!

 I used:

~ A square small baking tin

~ Square scrap booking paper

~ Double sided tape 

~ Metallic marker 

~ Stencils

These are the two baking tins I used. You can use any size or shape. 

I got my stencils and scrap booking paper ready. I used square paper, I picked a pastel pink tone.

I stenciled “XO” onto the paper, using my golden metallic marker. I then added arrows to top and bottom. I did this just drawing them , which was really easy, since the paper also had thin lines I could use to stay straight! 

After, I used double sided tape to stick the paper onto the tin. I figured I might want to change it in the spring, so this way I can make more 😉 and it’ll be easy to take off.

The Coffee Sign!


DIY Valentine's inspired Baking-Tin-Signs

I used:

~ A round baking tin ( it had like a handle in the middle for taking out the cake easier, I think, anyway, I took that off)

~ White paint

~ Coffee printable 

~ Double sided tape

~ scissors

~ Metallic Marker

First, I roughly painted only the inside of the bottom of the baking tin in an off white tone.

I printed out a coffee sign and I taped it inside the tin, also using double sided tape. After, I doodled a wreath around the sign, since there was room and I thought something was still missing… I think it looks really cute! It got a spot in my kitchen coffee corner! First thing I see & want in the morning. LOL!

    They both look great, Katrin!! I have an old baking pan which is no more suitable for baking and this would be a great idea!

      I like them too Nikki…and yes, they can be exchanged easily, which is what I like about any deco… no need to have tons and tons of decor when you can easily exchange pieces and parts.. Hahaha, oh my mind goes crazy sometimes..lol but it’s ok…

    What a fun and unusual idea. I would have never thought to have reused baking trays in such a way. I’ve just thrown one out as well, although that was more of a roasting tin, so probably wouldn’t make a very good sign.

      I really liked the tin as a tray or something and then I got the idea of using it to make signs… you can always change them up though cause I only used double sided tape…thanks for stopping by Sally 🙂

      Thanks so much Lindsey! Yes, these baking tin signs are cute and you can just change the inside for spring later on!

    You are so darn creative! It just doesn’t stop. And of course the metallic markers make their appearance. I haven’t done any Valentine’s decorating yet…but you are inspiring me to get busy.

    I absolutely love these signs! If only I hadn’t just donated all of my old baking tins during the Unclutter Your Nest Challenge!! Oh! Well, I guess now I have a reason to go thrifting this weekend. 😉 Those signs are just so gorgeous!!!

    • Katrin
      23/01/2016 at 08:55

      Oh no! Maybe you’ll find new old ones somewhere in a thriftstore….sometimes I declutter so much I also throw out stuff that I find a use for later… Thanks Gina, I’m happy you like these!

    • Katrin
      23/01/2016 at 09:06

      Thanks so much Linda! I’ll look at baking tins in a whole new different way now…I never wanna bake again, lol! Well, no, I do, but after I might use them for something else..:)

    I love this idea! I have lots of old tins that have lost their “non-stick” so this would be a great way to repurpose them!

    • Katrin
      23/01/2016 at 09:02

      Thanks Charlotte! I like it even better if they look distressed and old and used!

    I love the idea that you can switch out the papers. I also love that you are repurposing something that others might discard. Thanks for sharing.

    • Katrin
      23/01/2016 at 09:01

      Thanks so much Sherry! Yes, I think I’ll change it up later on in spring… I always like to change deco around…and I’ll have another chance to craft 😉
