DIY Buffalo Plaid Decor






We used acrylic paint and tape to make Buffalo Plaid on a wood sign and canvas. We recommend using Frog tape so that the paint does not bleed through.

DIY Wood Christmas Gift Box


A decorated wood box can be a gift holder, or a gift in itself. This box looks great on a table as a Christmas decoration. 



Tanya took two unfinished boxes that have an open end, matching up sizes and chose one to be a lid. 
paint the boxes white, then cut and glue Christmas scrapbook paper to the outsides. Finish it off by stapling or gluing ribbon to the lid and adding a bow to the top.
