Pretty Storage Box

DIY Decorative Box

I love pretty baskets and storage boxes. Back in December I found this really cute holiday box on clearance and I just had to have it! I’m in a crazy love for burlap phase and I thought this box would look awesome with some brown paper and burlap.

Box and materials

Here are the simple steps:

  • First I covered the sides with the brown wrapping paper I got at The Dollar store. I used Mod Podge Glue (I love this stuff) and with a sponge brush lightly covered the sides and attached the paper one side at a time smoothing it over and then folded it in.
  • I was worried that some of the colors would show through the burlap, so I gave it a light coat of brown just to tone down the colors.
  • I placed the burlap over the box to measure where to cut. The super nice lady at Hobby Lobby gave me a great tip of pulling out one of the strings to create a straight line to follow when cutting burlap.
  • I then covered the top with Mod Podge and attached the burlap. The burlap wasn’t laying as flat as I wanted so I added some hot glue to the edges and that worked better.
  • To cover the seams I added two rows of rope along the bottom.

Here is how it turned out:
