I don’t know if you are anything like me lately, but being limited to my own four walls definitely has increased my online ordering. Which means lots and lots of boxes. For the most part, I either put them in my recycling or break them down and use them as a starter for my fireplace. However, the other day I had a super cute small box and was thinking that there might be another option. It really doesn’t take much besides some modpodge, fabric, and a brush. I used cotton but I actually think that some nice printed paper might even turn out nicer.
The kids had been painting earlier in the day so already had covered the table with a laminate to protect my work surface.
Step 1: Cut off the top of the box.
Step Two: Measure your fabric or paper I cut strips 1/2 wider than your box in order to turn them over. If you are working with the paper you might want to keep them the exact size.
Step Three: Working in sections cover your sides with the mod podge and quickly follow with fabric or paper.
Step Four: Once you are finished cover the complete surface with a finishing layer of Modpodge and let it dry.
Once it is finished you can use all sorts of trimmings to decorate it. I used a ribbon and probably should have gone over it with another layer of Modpodge but was feeling lazy. Some rope on the bottom would also be nice and as soon as I can my hands on some I will add it.
