Tin Tile Flower Pocket

Inspiration for this project came from 
a fellow blogger...

Meegan at What Meegan Makes...
on her door all dressed up for Valentine's Day.

I loved the metal pocket and right away
I thought about some tin tiles I had 
leftover from another project...

I could make that!

or at least something similar...

I began by putting two tiles back to back and drilled
holes in a few places so I could attach them.

Using thick wire I ran it through the through the holes
and created a loop.

When the tiles were attached in several places I added a handle
then bent the tiles to form a pocket.

I painted both sides with a few coats of Annie Sloan 
Chalk Paint, right over the wire loops and all...

The resulting pocket is a great shabby chic
design to hold flowers on the door...

or leave it simple like mine.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. How adorable! Makes me want Spring to hurry up even more! I never find pressed tin in my area for a reasonable price- well at least what I think is reasonable haha! What do you think is a good price for it? The last piece I saw was 150 and that was for a piece about 3x4 feet.
