Recycled Crafts – Faux Tin Tiles from Disposable Cookie Sheets!

by Susan Myers on June 22, 2012

Recycled crafts are one of my specialties.  Embossing disposable cookie sheets is an easy technique and creates amazing art.  Beautiful faux tin tiles!  Want to know how?

This is my second recycled craft idea using disposable cookie sheets!.  I’m always on the look out for interesting things to make out of the unexpected.  I found some disposable cookie sheets at the Party City and have held onto them a while until inspiration hit.  And then one day, it occurred to me that maybe they might make some great faux tin tiles.

For this project I used:

2 disposable aluminum cookie sheets
Free patterns from my pattern page*
A knitting needle
Paintbrush
Various metallic acrylic paints
Spray primer
A cork bulletin board
Thumb tacks

Are you new to the Sitcom?  Be sure to check out my Frequently Asked Questions Page!

Begin by measuring out and cutting (3 ea.) 7″ squares from each cookie sheet.  Use a ruler to measure them and mark the cookie sheet by pressing a knitting needle along the ruler, then simply cut them out with scissors.  Then take the ruler and score 1/4″ from all four sides of your square using the knitting needle.

Use the scissors to clip a notch in each corner.  Then fold the metal over carefully along your scored seam.  This will create a smooth finished edge for each tile.

I then drew out some patterns on paper.  Laying the metal tile on top of a folded towel, I used a knitting needle to press the design into the metal.  For your convenience, you can download the free patterns from my pattern page.

Here the metal tile is shown with the pattern scored into it.  Keeping the tile on the folded towel, then use the end of a paintbrush handle to gently rub indentations into the metal where you want them.  The more you rub, the deeper they can be, just be careful not to use a ton of force as the aluminum is very thin metal.

Once the piece is indented to your satisfaction, it is time to paint it.  You could certainly leave it unpainted at this stage, but I’m all about color.  I first lightly sprayed each piece with a layer of primer.  Once that was dry, I began by painting the indented areas using metallic acrylic paint.

Once all the indentions were painted, I added a base color to the raised areas.  I then added details by watering down some metallic acrylic black paint and adding it to lines and edges of the indentations, giving it an antiqued look.

I used the same color scheme for each tile, so that they all worked together.

There are many ways to display your finished tiles.  I chose to use a cork bulletin board and lined them up carefully, pinning them down with thumbtacks.  This resulted in a great piece of wall art that will definitely surprise anyone when you tell them it started out life as a couple disposable cookie sheets.

For a great video on this embossing technique, look here! 

Here is another example of a different color scheme using a different set of patterns.  All twelve patterns are available FREE here!

WOW… these ideas are amazing! Great tutorials…very helpful, thanks so much. I was looking for a timeless craft idea for a Women’s church group, and this was perfect!! I think they will love this, and we can do something with this each year, and still have something made using the same techniques they previously learned, and end up with something different each year. Again, THANKS!!!

Thank you for the tutorial! This is such a lovely idea! I think they would also look lovely on a piece of old wood, like recyckled pallets for example, don’t you think? I used to make little boxes of soda cans, and now I’m definitely going make these tiles – or fail trying. lol Great job! :) And thanks again!

Hi Sara,

You can find disposable aluminum cookie sheets at any party supply store like Party City. Lately, I’ve been using the disposable lids meant for buffet trays. You can get them at Party City for about 80 cents each.

Hope that helps!

Just what I’ve been looking for!!! I want to do these as a backsplash on my new kitchen..new house!!! :) what would be a good way to attach to the wall ? can I just put it over existing wall paper?? I’m excited!!! :) thank you!

Reply

13 Susan Myers July 6, 2013 at 2:12 pm

Hi Johnny,

I used mine for a backsplash behind the stove, but I put mine on a bulletin board. If you like the idea with the thumbtacks, it might work well putting them on the wall that way. Otherwise, for a more permanent hold, you could consider a glue meant for metals.

Whatever you decide, would love to see your finished project!

Mas não entendo que folha de alumínio é essa que você fala. Vou nas casas de festas para ver se encontro. No caso, o alumínio das latinhas servem? Beijos e parabéns!

Oh I do love to work with tin and aluminium! Thank you so very much for taking the time to make such great tutorials.
I was wondering why you prime the tiles and then apply metallic paint? I have been making a lot of Xmas ornaments from soda cans and find that they are just so nice and shiny if I simply use Sharpies or some other permanent marker on them, then spray varnish to seal.
Lis

20 Susan Myers May 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

Sharpies are definitely a good choice, and you are right, you don’t have to use primer for them. I love the look of metallic paints, so in order to add them, it requires primer. Otherwise, they peel right off.

Thanks so much for stopping by! There will be lots of new patterns in the future!

I have looked unsuccesfully in several places for similar cookie sheets. Where did you find these sheets? I think this could be a good lesson for school if I can find some. Budget money is scarce this time of year.

Hi!

The best place to find disposable cookie sheets without patterns in them is Party City or any other party supply store. In fact, lately I’ve been using the disposable aluminum lids that they sell for buffet tables. They are inexpensive at less than 80 cents a piece.

Hope that helps! If your class makes the project, I would love to feature them on the Sitcom!

Possibly. I will have to experiment and let you know. Seems that it might be a good solution. Also- color isn’t a necessity. The tiles look great just simply embossed.

I would love to know the brand & color of the paints you used on this project they would really look wonderful in my Kitchen, I can’t find a Back-splash I like I have the pattern I want to do searching for the colors I like has been more trouble than its worth….
The colors you chose will match and do the project i want to do pop.

Thank you! I used Krylon black primer for metal. Just a light coat is all you need to ready it for the paint.

42 Nancy Cornett June 10, 2013 at 10:50 am

This project is wonderful! I’ve done some painting on metal with various things and have had problems with it staying on. I think your primer idea may be the answer. I see you said you used BLACK Krylon primer for metal. But the pictures don’t look like they have black on them. Will you please confirm about the color primer you used?

Thanks

Reply

43 Susan Myers June 10, 2013 at 10:58 am

Hi Nancy,

You are right. The picture is not correct. This post has been up for over a year and you are the first to mention it. The photo is actually showing my first attempt. The paint peels right off. Primer is totally necessary. I switched to black primer because it fills in all the crevices with black- less outlining needed in the end.

Thank you for pointing that out. I need to go back and find the right photo!

Reply

44 Nancy Cornett June 10, 2013 at 11:23 am

Thanks for the update. Now that you mention it, I can see the black outlining on your finished piece. It adds a lot. Then I also looked at your fish aluminum cookie tin project. You clearly show the black in the process there.

I’ll be picking up some primer this week!

I just wanted to share what I discovered purely by accident. You may already know this, so forgive me if I am repeating. I did not have any plain pans, so I decided to see if I could smooth out the light indentations on the pan I had. I was holding it against the surface of my textured refrigerator, and it took out the indentations, and left the pan textured. Now I am looking all over for textures inside and outside my house. I think it would be beautiful to texture, then add the designs from your templates! And it is handy if you cannot find the plain pans.

Reply

48 Suzy September 8, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Hi Jan,

The last few projects that I made, I smoothed out the pans. I didn’t think about the texture thing, though. Now you have me thinking in a whole other direction! Thank you so much! I would absolutely love to see your creations when you are done!

Now I can duplicate the look, and use my own design for the pattern. Thank you so much for posting this! I will definitely be doing this soon. My husband just bought some of the foil pans at Publix the other day, and I think I already have the colors of paint I need! Yea!!

I am so in love with your faux tin tiles, I have so many projects in mind for these, a new headboard for my bed covered in these tiles, kitchen backsplash, plus I have a book that I bought years ago, just cause it’s a beautiful book that has illustrations in it from every era from practically the beginning of time, Morrocan, Roman, Turkish, and I could blow up the illustrations and copy it on tin and have some other design options, although yours are beautiful and I will definitely start there…but I have a question, what kind of primer did you use, was it clear? And what kind of sealer did you use, shouldn’t it be like a polyurethane to make it waterproof, since I will be using it around my sink, and what do you think about glueing the whole “tile” to something, I don’t know what, yet to make it so I don’t need to thumbtacks cause that would leave a gap that water could get behind, I’m thinking in the case of the backsplash! I do hope you answer my questions cause I want to start this now!!! Thankyou!

Where did you find the metallic acryllic paint in these colors. At Hobby Lobby and Michaels they had very few colors, mainly gold, silver, black, red. None of the pretty colors like you used.
Thanks!

55 Judy Miller August 21, 2012 at 2:50 pm

I love this and want to do it for my back splash. However, wondering if they will hold their design shape during cleaning. On a backsplash you need to rub pretty hard sometimes.

Reply

56 Suzy August 21, 2012 at 2:54 pm

They are surprisingly sturdy. They could handle a cleaning with a sponge, but scrubbing might not be a good thing for them. If I were you, I’d try making just one and testing it out.

If you can’t find plain cookie sheets you can also use the foil lids for the large disposable foil steam pans. The lids are flat and smooth and can be trimmed to size.

I have not been able to find a plain, flat bottomed disposable cookie sheet. The disposable cookie sheets I have seen (Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Walmart & KMart) have a design imprinted into the bottom, or has holes all over it. Where did you find the flat bottomed pans? I really like your idea and want to do some for my kitchen. Thanks for any help.

Hi Sharon,

I bought mine in the Dollar store around Christmas time. Apparently, they stock certain things at certain times. I went last week and couldn’t find them. However, you can get them anytime from Party City or any other catering store. Here is a link to their website- http://www.partycity.com/category/entertaining+serving/aluminum+pans.do . The steam lids and the cookie sheets would be perfect for this project and they are all under a dollar!

Hope that helps.

Hi Nicole!

These are disposable aluminum pans – you can find them at the grocery store, or dollar store, or Target, or Walmart. They are the kind of pans meant for one use and then throw them away. Some of my readers are having problems finding them without a pattern on the bottom. If you can only locate ones with patterns, choose one with a light pattern. The embossing will remove any sign of the previous pattern. Hope that helps!

Suzy, Suzy, Suzy…You are still queen of the crafting world. It is slightly unfair to the rest of us that you received more than your share of creative genes, but I guess God balanced it out by giving you more than your share of generosity. Thanks for sharing this awesome idea and it is beyond kind that you shared your pdf too. I love tin tiles. This is being pinned and if I could lend my kids to a traveling circus for a month or so, I would put this on the top of my to-make list.

Its really very beautiful. My mom does this type of work , but she uses a bit thicker aluminium sheet and for the embossed effect, she uses the wooden clay tools .
