10 Ways to Upcycle Old Baking Tins

, , Leave a comment

A rusted, leaky or otherwise ‘broken’ baking tin is no good for cooking, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t useful anymore. Its shape is still perfect for other projects, especially if it has a pretty rim. Just by adding paint and drilling a few holes, you can make a variety of ‘new’ things out of it.

1. Tiered planter – especially if the baking tins already have holes
