Homemade Christmas Decor – CraftOManiac


Hello I am Jennie, or “Jen” the Author and Craft Disorder Junkie from CraftOManiac. I opened and started my Craft blog February this year, it has been loads of fun. Today I AM THRILLED to be a part of Micheles Homemade Christmas Party. Today I will be showing you how I made these cute Dollar Store NOEL boxes. I love the Christmas song “NOEL” its a fav. for sure.
I bought these boxes at the dollar tree plain. You can find most boxes at most craft stores. 

 I first started by painting the lids with acrylic paint in wicker white. Let dry.

 Then I painted the boxes a Red Berry Barn. Let dry.

 Next I used gold glitter glue and applied it with my index finger. Let all dry.

 Then from a super old hymn book I took out the music notes to “Noel”. I cut it to size, took scissors and roughed the edges and then mod podged it on.

 For the lettering I used the Platinum Schoolbook Cartridge and cut out the letters from my Cricut. Alternating green card stock with the hymn music note paper. The letters too got Glitter Glue and on the music hymn letters the entire front got all covered in glitter glue. The letters too were mod podged on. Let all dry, and lastly add your lids and you are done.

Please come visit me at CraftOManiac. I would love to meet you. Jen

Love this idea! They look fantastic. I have seen many block ideas around lately for Christmas but none of them have provided a storage solution at the same time! haha
