DIY outside the box...

one box. a bazillion possibilities. {or at least 5 }
the tiny diva and i would love for you to join us in 5 weeks of craftiness outside of the box... this box.
starting now....
 our first project was inspired by one of my favorite bloggie places, CAKIES, i came across her "little stars" post a few days ago and my eyes got happy! our little stars are a bit different, made from cardboard, but they warm up our bleak little wintery space perfectly!
supplies needed:
the box... of course! {we only used one of the side panels}
white craft paint
star stencil
glue/mod podge
trace your stencil... then cut it out
paint with gesso and craft paint... could you do only one or the other?... i GESS-SO! ;)
can you ever have too much glitter? the answer is yes. yes you can. but for this project the more the merrier. {we had gold sparkly hair when we were done... }
once the glue dries poke holes in the tops of your stars, thread with ribbon or what have you,
{we used grey twine} and hang somewhere that needs a little bit of glittery magic!
what kind of stuff can you make from one box?

What a cute idea, curious to see what else you come up with :) I use to use left over boxes to slide down hills growing up with my brother!

I wanted to invite you to stop by our weekly weekend "Meet & Greet Blog Hop" (Friday - Monday). Come link up if you have time this weekend and join the fun!

This is a great idea! Usually, my kids end up using a great, big box as a fort. =0)

We usually make pet houses with our boxes but glittery stars looks like a lot of fun! I'm glad to "meet & greet" you today!

This is such a lovely project! I love the idea of taking something as everyday as a cardboard box and making something interesting. Discovered your cute blog via the hop...I look forward to reading more!
