Here’s a craft idea the whole family can do. Mother’s Day is coming up and Father’s Day will be here soon.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to give a heartfelt gift.
Everyone can use organization tools and supplies. These boxes help Dad or Mom organize, but they are also sentimental too. You can fill these boxes with goodies and use your homemade box as a gift box.
All you need is a plain box, some paints, and Modge Podge (Amazon).
- Plain box – I prefer wood/cardboard, but you could try some other materials. Michael’s and Hobby Lobby have a good assortment.
- Acrylic paints
- paint brushes
- decorations such as photos, stencils, tissue paper, pressed flowers, ticket stubs, etc.
- Modge Podge
2. Paint your box with the acrylic paints and add decorations using Modge Podge as an adherent. Get creative. Find sentimental photos, ticket stubs, flowers from the yard – anything that would be meaningful to the recipient.
3. Once your box is decorated coat with Modge Podge to seal.
4. Let it dry.
It’s that easy.
Here are some examples of creations I have given my husband over the years.
He’s a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan so I made a Steeler’s gift box for him.
This box was part of an anniversary present.
If you would like to buy your supplies online here’s what I recommend from Amazon.
