Five Ways to Repurpose your TLC Candle Co. Tins

With as much detail and beauty that TLC puts into their products, it makes sense that you would want to keep the fabulous tin that your TLC candle arrives in even after your candle is no longer able to burn. These tins have just as much thought and effort put into them as the candles themselves, which is why the tins are extremely beautiful, versatile, and well-made. To help in the brainstorming process of what you might want to use your TLC Candle Co. Tins for, we’re going to list out a few ideas for you here!

We’ll start off with two of the most obvious uses for these tins, the first one being an organizer for your pens and pencils! Whether it be for your children’s craft room and their array of pens and paint brushes, or to add sophistication and beauty to your home office with all your necessary writing utensils, it’s a no brainer that these TLC tins would be able to do the job. TLC’s focus on design and value in their products allows for you to use a TLC tin in any room in your home and for there to be an effortless sense of elegance and professionalism – and we know you can’t be professional and on your A-game if your desk and everything around you is a cluttered mess!

Another quite obvious use for your tin would be a holder for loose change. Set it in your kitchen or on the table next to your door that is used the most often and throw in any loose change that you, or anyone else in the family, may have collected over the day. Using cash nowadays isn’t very common, however, whenever I find myself using cash, I end up ditching the change somewhere else and losing it! Having a discrete, yet beautiful, holder to throw in this change would be a huge benefit and definitely alleviate that problem!

With summer being in full swing right about now, I think we all are taking advantage of the outdoors. This probably means that you’ve been planting summer flowers and opening up windows and attempting to let some of that nature from outside seep into your home. One way that you could bring nature into your home is by bringing some plants inside! You can easily do this by using one of TLC Candle Co.’s tins as a makeshift planter for some of your smaller flowers. Maybe you are into succulents and need a new holder for them, a TLC tin is a great option for a cheap and casual, yet beautiful, holder that will easily fit in with the rest of your home and allow for you to bring the essence of summer inside.

Another fabulous organization, or even decoration, idea for your leftover TLC tins is to use them to hold your utensils. Set them right by your sink and use them to hold your utensils as your finish washing and are waiting to put them away. Or maybe you have the tins set out in the middle of your kitchen island as a decorative statement piece and genuinely store your utensils in multiple tins. You could even turn the tins into a utensil carrier that would be great for parties by nailing or gluing a few tins to a board on either side and then attaching a handle. With the attention to detail that TLC puts in to everything about their products, including the tins, the options for how to use them are endless!

 Last but not least, if you happen to be a loyal TLC buyer and have an abundant amount of leftover tins and can no longer find any more practical uses for them, you can use them as supplies for arts and crafts during slow summer afternoons when the kids are driving you crazy! Maybe you simply give them one and let them paint it however they want and let them use it in whatever way they want. Maybe you can use the tins as the body to a creature or animal that your child designs and puts together with the help of a few extra supplies that you could purchase rather cheap. With a little creativity (and children got a lot of that), these TLC Candle Co. tins could be used to create heartwarming memories with your children!

TLC makes every aspect of their product useful, even down to the storage container that your TLC candle arrives in. With a little extra thought and creativity, these beautiful and wonderfully made tins can be used as statement pieces, organizers, planters, or even essential supplies in your child’s next masterpiece! We would love to see how you decide to repurpose your TLC Candle Co. tins – tag us on Instagram @tlccandle so we can see how your TLC tins are being used in your home!

We Have the Best Smells From the Farm

When we say we have candles that are “the best smells from the farm”, we’re not talking about the animal barn or what’s in the dirt in the fields. We’re talking about what’s beyond that, the roots of farming. Fresh produce, leathery musk, and the flowery smell that can only be found out in the fresh air. That’s all at the core of farm life and, for so many people, that’s home.
