The last miniature tool tree ornament tutorial is the mini paint can. Can of paint or bucket of paint, whatever you call it, it’s miniature and perfect for all those paint loving friends in your life.
I shared all the mini tool tree ornaments during this past Christmas in July. Such a fun little project idea or gift.

Step 1: Print out labels to fit the plastic containers. Spray paint exterior of plastic containers silver.
Step 2: Attach labels to containers using double sided tape.
Step 3: Cut 1″ dowel into 1″ lengths. Dip one end into white paint and let dry. Once dry use hot glue to attach ‘paint’ into base of plastic container.
Step 4: Predrill small hole into both sides of plastic container near top edge. Cut a small piece of wire and insert into both holes then bend end upwards. Apply small dab of hot glue to exterior of plastic container where wire went in. Add bakers twine hanger.
