Why not turn those decorative biscuit tins into something useful. I put mine onto the walls for extra shelving. My grandsons have got a London bus bunk bed and red and blue walls. So these London licorice tins came in handy. You can use them to keep your incense in, bits and pieces, cards, money, etc. the ideas are endless.


  • 1 Biscuit tin
  • 2 Nails
  • 1 Hammer
  • 1 Spirit level


  1. Line base of biscuit tin straight up against wall and wall beams.
  2. Hammer one nail inside near the top of the tin to hold it in place.
  3. Realign the tin to make sure its straight. Then hammer in another nail once straight.
  4. Place items inside and close lid right way up.
