Alternative Uses For Muffin Tins

8 Out-of-the-Kitchen Uses For Muffin Tins

I have a collection of vintage muffin tins that I adore but rarely get around to actually baking in. Is this the case at your house, too? Maybe it's time to take the muffin tins out of the kitchen and transfer them to another part of your home. Take a look at a few ideas for using them around the house.

  1. Use tins for organizing jewelry.
  2. Use them for molds for handmade bars of soap.
  3. Organize sewing pins and other supplies with a tin.
  4. Try a muffin tin for organizing bits and bobs in your junk drawer.
  5. Use it inside an office desk drawer for holding paper clips and other supplies.
  6. Use it to make round crayons out of old ends of crayons for your art projects.
  7. If you don't have a toolbox, store screws, nails, and picture hanging hardware in a muffin tin.
  8. Use a tin for organizing garden seeds or bulbs when you're ready for planting.

While working with hobbies I have used them for sorting buttons, coins, and stamp collections. Also hold different colors of PlayDoh, or marbles, Polly Pockets. When children are helping decorate cupcakes or pancakes....use them to hold a variety of sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc.

What a cute idea! I don't have a traditional jewelry box, so this is a great new way to store my many doodads. ;-)
