diy {decoupage mini-crate}

6.15AmyButler-01I found this mini-crate at Target for $3.00. The inside is my favorite color, so I thought it should come on home with me. To give it a little more spunk, I decoupaged paper to the sides. A super simple and fast craft with tons of uses…

Supplies:

  • Mini-crate (Target $3.00)
  • Decoupage (I use Americana brand)
  • Scrapbooking paper (I used sheets from Amy Butler’s Decoupage book)6.15AmyButler-02Step 1: pick your paper. I looked for some that coordinated with the green already painted on the inside of the crate.6.15AmyButler-03Step 2: cut your strips. Be sure to keep them in order so the design is correct when you attach them to the crate.6.15AmyButler-05Step 3: trace the end sides and cut to fit. This part is a little tricky, but not too hard.6.15AmyButler-07While most of our meals take place at our picnic table, our crate is holding utensils, straws and napkins.6.15AmyButler-096.15AmyButler-10You could use it for all kinds of things – organizing anything, a gift box, etc. Super simple! Extra fun…I’m giving away a copy of Amy Butler’s Decoupage book today. It comes with 12 project ideas and 80 pages 0f beautiful paper.
