I try to do some sort of crafting every day. These are my latest projects.
This is an Altoids tin that I got at a garage sale for free. It was full of little plastic animals etc. I painted the bottom of it and covered the top with a piece of wrapping paper. I covered the wrapping paper with glossy accents. The chain around the edge came from a Goodwill necklace and the button came from the tin or box of buttons I recently bought.
This box came from Goodwill. It was green with two birds and a Christmas wreath on the top. I took the birds and wreath off and painted the box with gesso and then with black acrylic paint. Last weekend I bought a children's book at a yard sale for $0.10. I made copies of several pages and cut out some of the images. I decoupaged those images around the box. Once that was dry I painted over everything with beige paint and rubbed off most of it to make the box look a little old. Then I used the handle end of a paint brush to make the red dots. The little rocking chair on the top came from the altoids tin. It was bright green. I painted it and used E6000 to glue it to the box.
Have a great day!
