A Classic Twist on DIY Organization

Have you been dreaming of your best Halloween costume EVER since November of last year? Do you have grand plans to carve a family of pumpkins to line your porch steps? For those of you who have Halloween on the mind, we’ve got a treat of a project for you. Our Shoppe Manager, Vanessa, created this darling storage solution that makes the daunting task of organization a little less scary for all of us.  It can also double as fun party décor for your spooky Halloween celebration!

 

Materials

Paper Mache Mini Boxes with Frame

White Acrylic Paint

Halloween Blueprint Stamp

Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad

Clearly Impressed Large Rectangular Acrylic Mount

SMASH Label Maker

Instructions

  1. Coat all surfaces of the frame and storage boxes with white acrylic paint. Let dry. Apply a second coat if needed.
  2. Use StazOn Ink to stamp the images onto the front surfaces of storage boxes.  For best results, make sure to ink the stamps well.
  3. Spell out desired phrases using the SMASH Label Maker. Don’t worry if the letters don’t punch perfectly — that’s what makes the distressed style so unique.
  4. Fill with an assortment of candies you can nibble on when you’re in the mood for a treat!

For more crafting projects that can be completed from start to finish in just one day (don’t you just love that kind?) please visit The Studio.
