Before you attempt to paint a tin surface, consider an important point about adhesion. Surfaces, such as drywall and wood, are porous. This characteristic leaves them well-suited for painted finishes. Unfortunately, tin is not porous. This trait makes it a poor candidate for paint.
Don't throw out your empty tin cans from dinner. Rinse them, pull off the labels, and use them in this upcycle craft to make adorable pumpkins for fall. They'll go perfectly with your rustic or farmhouse fall decor. There's a good chance that you have all the items you need for this craft at home, so it's definitely something to save for a rainy fall weekend when you're looking for an activity for the family to do together.
