I love shadow boxes! They’re great for displaying mementoes, especially in kid’s rooms. And they make fun frames. And if you start with a plain wood shadow box from the craft store, you have a blank canvas that you can personalize for any space or occasion!
And by occasion, I’m thinking how fun these would be at a birthday party or a family get together…
Can’t you imagine these decorating your buffet table painted and papered in something cohesive with your party theme!? Or on the cake table at your next birthday party!?
If you have a minute, I’ll show you how easy these are!
Here’s What You Need
*Decou-Page decoupage medium
*Sand Paper (If you like a worn, rustic look)
Paint the whole box- let dry…
Decide where you want your paper and cut it decoupage it on.
After it’s dry, lightly sand (if you want to) and apply a top coat of decoupage medium.
Tuck photos inside the boxes and stack them! Add a little string of LED lights for a little extra fun…
I’m thinking about ordering some prints from past parties and covering 6 or 8 more shadow boxes in fall colors…
For some fun decor at our big Fall Party this October!
It’s so brutally hot here that I can’t help thinking about fall blowing in and cooling everything off!Have a great day my friends ~ ox
This post is part of my Year of Reckless Crafting!
For this project, for the first time, I used: wood shadow boxes!
