#77: Decorate Wood Challenge at Unstampabelles is coming to an end.....

And who can believe that March is nearly over as well! 



Unstampabelles still have a week to run on their March Challenge
Decorate something Wooden

So, for this week I decorated a wooden box of sorts......
It is a garden Box - to contain small hand tools, gloves and seeds, and twine so you can take these things too and fro to your garden bed easily. 

I got hubby to make it from some old timber
My design and his work
It is rustic in appearance....



The centre will be for seed packets


I gave it two good thick coats of  white acrylic paint
Once it was fry I began to find and apply some old rub-ons and stickers I had





The stickers will not stay on for long but they added a fun element


Both sides of the box I used a foil transfer to create some interest and make it feminine 


These foil stickers have been hanging around for ages - they are actually a cross between a rub-on and a sticker overlaid with some pink foil 


The ends got rub-ons added


Just for a bit of interest really


This is to be a gift for Easter so I will purchase the gloves and tools and seeds and fill the box up with Easter goodies too - I had fun creating the idea and decorating it and I managed to do it without the cat getting in the paint!


Here is some more inspiration for you


Here is some wood decorated with a beautiful autumn sky and green grass

What a wonderful project! Love how you've decorated it. I don't do much gardening but I might if I had one of these? LOL This was such a fun challenge!

A great pair to create such a beautiful box. I bet it will hold a fair amount of Easter treats.
