Five Things to Do with Your Tarantella Organic Tomato Puree Tins

Whether you like them just the way they are or want to decorate them in your own unique style, reusing our organic tomato puree tins is an easy way to make a small difference to our planet – and there are so many things you can do with them! So once you’ve enjoyed the puree itself in one of your favourite meals, why not consider some of the below ideas for your next weekend craft project.

Ingredient Storage

Keep all of your favourite ingredients within easy reach of the hob in their own little pots. Whether it’s chilli, garlic, cinnamon sticks, or something else altogether, our tins can help keep them on hand for whenever you may need them.

Grow Your Own Herbs

Growing your own ingredients is very rewarding and you can start growing them in your kitchen, ready to plant into your garden once they get bigger – simply fill your tin with soil and plant a basil seed for fresh herbs with your Italian pasta recipes.

Home Office Helper

Keep your desk neat and tidy by gathering all your paperclips (or drawing pins, rubber bands, or memory sticks) into our tins, which can be kept neatly at the back of your desk or scattered artistically across it. Our puree comes in packs of three so you can use each tin for a different item.

Homemade Candleholder

Maybe you’re burning the midnight oil, or maybe you’re just trying to unwind. Either way, our tins work great as homemade candleholders! Just trim the wick, drop the candle into the tin, and light it.

Key Pot

With us all going out a lot less, it’s much easier to misplace your keys! Transform your tin into a handy little pot you can keep them in by the door so that they’re always there when you need them.


These are just a few ideas. We’d love to see what you use them for – head over to our page on Facebook and post your Tarantella tin creations.
