More Boxes



I bought some wooden boxes in America to decorate to sell at craft fairs. Hubby has spray painted this one in a random pattern. I added ribbon and lace from Crafty Ribbons, pearl sprays and flowers.


The next 2 are really small and cute and the ribbon from Crafty Ribbons matches beautifully. Again painted by hubby. It takes him longer to paint them than it does me to decorate them! He paints them with primer and then the top coat. They are all painted inside too.

These are lovely Marianne! My hubby throws out so many cigar boxes and I hate to see them go to waste ... I may have to rectify that after seeing these!! I hope they sell well for you.
