How to take an ordinary white box from…..Drab to Fab…… This idea can be used in so many applications…I wish I had pics from over the years…example: fabric, lampshades, furniture, vases… endless
Here’s the low down….
Grab a plain white shirt box or any white box you have stuffed in your gift wrap area.
Find a can of left over spray paint from a project.
Here’s where it gets tricky ….lol jk…. snatch a portion of a branch or flower with leaves on it from a tree, bush, or indoor plant. Pick something hardy,and a type that will lay flat, you may have to remove a few leaves to make that happen. Here’s what I picked, but it can be anything, a fern works well. Note: In the pic you see a ruler, don’t use one, it was a bad idea. Trust me you don’t want the outline of a ruler on your box. I don’t know what I was thinking, but thankfully it was an easy fix.
Lay your little branch down on the box and spray over the leaves on the box. Hope that a gust of wind doesn’t blow your project over like it did mine…..
When you remove the branch it looks like this:
Continue doing this whole process all over the box, don’t worry about over lapping in some areas, it makes it look pretty. Tip: don’t go to heavy on the paint.
It’s finished…. !!! I’m showing the same box with 3 different ribbons…:) What do you think?
