DIY Beachcomber Treasure Box

Believe it or not, spring is coming soon and will bring warmer weather. Beach combing is a perfect outdoor activity to shake off winter, and just one of the perks of living in the Puget Sound area. We have a great wooden box project that we are excited to share with you. This is the perfect display box for all of your beach treasures!

  • Unfinished Wood Box
  • Turquoise Acrylic Paint
  • One Roll Jute Ribbon
  • Sand (aprox. one cup)
  • Mod Podge
  • One Bottle Black Sparkle Glitter
  • One Sheet Fabscraps Coral One Scrapbook Paper
  • One Sheet Fabscraps Big Belly Seahorse Paper
  • Two Sheets Fabscraps Splashes Paper


Directions:
  1. Paint the inside and outside of wood box with turquoise paint. Allow to dry completely.
  2. Place Big Belly Seahorse scrapbook paper over the lid, mark edges lightly with a pencil and trim off excess paper.
  3. Attach paper to lid with Mod Podge.
  4. Using Splashes scrapbook paper, trace sides of box, cut out and glue on all three sides.
  5. With Coral One scrapbook paper, trace the top of box, cut and glue on.
