Any guesses what I made this little double-decker bus out of? Look close. It's a candy Tic Tac container! I found the empty Tic Tac container while cleaning and inspiration hit > Olympics > London > Double-decker bus > Tic Tac container > Mini double-decker bus. Makes perfect sense, right?
Tic Tac container (pictured left) - Peel off all labels and clean with soap and water to get rid of glue residue.
Paint (Red, Black, and White) - I used acrylic painters pens
1. Take apart the lid and base. Place tape on box anywhere you want windows or doors. For inspiration, I recommend an image search for "double-decker buses". Cover both pieces with red paint and let dry.
2. Once the red paint is dry, peel away all tape. If paint leaks through tape, just scrape it off with a toothpick.
3. Paint details such as wheels, license plates, etc.
Place lid back on to create a door at the back of the bus. Now you just need some tiny people to fill it with. I'm still working on that. I'm considering paper people or worry people. Maybe I'll just let my kids figure that part out.
