Cookie tins in assorted sizes

Wooden craft shape for the base
4-6 wooden craft rounds/balls for the feet
2 nuts and 1 washer for each cookie tin
Drill bit slightly smaller than the metal rod
Wood glue or glue gun
1) Measure to find the center of each cookie tin and drill a hole. Do the same with the wood base. You may need to sand down any rough areas. Make sure to wear gloves and be careful not to get metal splinters!
2) Spray paint the tins, metal rod, wooden base and feet.
3) Once everything is dry, attach contact paper to the inside of each cookie tin. This will ensure that the tins are food safe.
4) Glue the round feet to the bottom of the base. Then place the wooden base on the end of the metal rod and fasten with a washer and nut. Next place the bottom cookie tin flush against the top of the wooden base and attach with a nut. Start placing the rest of the cookie tins onto the rod. Secure each tin with a nut on top and a washer and nut underneath.
