DIY: Tin Bucket Totes for Yarn/String Storage

Love these little tin buckets, and with a little punch here and tap there you can make a cute "tin tote" too!

All you need is this:

  • Tin totes in whatever size you desire. I picked up these at Michaels Arts and Crafts for very inexpensive, and they have a variety of different colors. I like the little for kitchen twine and the bigger I use for a rolled skein of yarn.
  • Small grommets with grommet tool.
  • Sharpie
  • Measuring tape
  • Hammer

Place a dot in the center of the bucket top, punch hole (I used the grommet tool), fit grommet and easy peasey you're done!

Cute! Right? Package this with a new pair of knitting needles and a nice sock or hat pattern and yippee the cutest little gift ever!
