As an immediate side effect of the imminent arrival of Winter down under (yes, winter is coming), I’ve started consuming tea by the gallon. Drinking tea has a plethora of super attractive health benefits, which is great when it tastes as good as the Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon tea (If you could taste Sam Smith’s voice, this is what it would taste like). However, this comes with the inevitable accumulation of their beautiful tea tins, desperately seeking a little kiwi DIY. We have put together four ways to up-cycle their charming tea tins:
1. INDOOR HERB PLANTERS
Tap into your inner Julia Child and get cooking: Think soups, flans and bakes, flavoured with your very own ‘erbs. Fresher in flavour and higher in nutrients, real fresh herbs are the best way to add that lil’ something to your dinner and potted in these fabulous tins, they’ll look great in your cooking, and out!
2. CANDLE HOLDER
To house your beautiful scented candles and immediately up the cosy atmosphere in any room in the house, these tins make the cutest candle-cosies.
3. STATIONERY STATION
Study season is looming and this calls for only the most efficient stationery shopping, sorting and organising, obviously, before any note taking can commence. Use your Harney & Sons tins to keep all your prettiest pens. No more pesky desk eye sores to distract you from the task at hand.
4. BITS AND BOBS STORAGE
Use your Harney & Sons tins to hideaway all your boring bits and pieces, think bobby pins etc. leaving room only for the prettiest dresser dressers.
