DIY Vintage Farmhouse Style Baking Tin Ornaments – 2017 Ornament Exchange

Welcome to the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home!

I am so excited about this and even more when I found out that I got Sam from Raggedy Bits as my Ornament Exchange Partner!!! We have a similar style so it wasn’t very hard for me to make ornaments for her. And Sam loves everything Vintage Farmhouse, so I made her these DIY Vintage Farmhouse Style Baking Tin Ornaments. I hope she’ll like them, what do you think??

DIY Vintage Farmhouse Style Baking Tin Ornaments 

 What I’ve used:

mini baking tins

crochet lace ribbon, similar here

free Christmas words printable available here

thin translucent sheet

thin silver tinsel


DIY vintage farmhouse style baking tin ornaments kreativk.net


TIP: The baking tins were too shiny and brand new looking, so, the first thing I did was rub the baking tins with white vinegar and let sit for a day. Repeat one or two times until you get the desired patina and vintage look.

I printed out the words in one of my favourite fonts.

1. The easiest way to get the words centered is to just turn around a tin, place the print on top of it and rub against the tin until the shape is visible. Then cut out!

2. Use the previously cut out words as a pattern for the translucent paper and cut out as well.

3.  First glue word circles into tins and then cover with translucent circles. They will have a nice off white look.

4.  Cut tinsel into little strips and glue inside the tins around the words.

5. Turn around tins and stick on the crochet lace ribbon using hot glue.

    Lovely! A totally awesome photo tutorial on the art of making ornaments from simple items. It transforms the novice into a pro. The vinegar trick is amazing, even knowing that it is an acid would not make me think of it. Thank-you!

    Katrin, I absolutely adore these ornaments!! Whenever I come across mini baking tins, I want to bring them all home with me, but never know how I’d use them. Now I know 😉 And I never knew about the vinegar trick to age them – I’ve got to remember that!

    Oh how stunning Katrin. You’ve just taken a baking mold, added a pipe cleaner, some words and lace and turned it into a beautiful vintage looking ornament. How do you do that? It looks like something you’d find it one of those expensive stores. I’m sure Sam will love it

    • Katrin

    I love the vintage feel of the ornaments you made! I’m just remembering that I saw some small tins like that at the local thrift store that would be perfect to make these with. I’ll have to check to see if they are still there.

    • Katrin
      18/11/2017 at 18:21

      SO happy you like them!! If you don’t find used ones, new ones can look vintage if you rub vinegar on them, like I did with these!!

  • Maryy them
    16/11/2017 at 18:04

    Beautifully done Katrin. I love how you aged the tins with vinegar. They have such an authentic look totem now! And the lace really adds to that old world look. This is definitely Sam’s style. She is going to love them!!

      Vinegar is so great isn’t it! They just looked too new before, haha. Anyways, what a fun blog hop and yes, I think Sam is liking these 🙂
