Something about a shoe box is childishly exciting to me, still. I can’t bring myself to ever throw one away despite the fact I use matching shoe boxes to actually store my shoes in!
Luckily I have a LOT of clutter in my life so my shoe boxes come in handy!
I decorated it because there are no excuses for ugly things right!
I covered the box in pieces of newspaper and then a layer of pva.
Let that dry over night then washed with a 50:50 mix white paint and water and let it dry over night again.
I painted the base and inside lid with two coats of white paint, and yes you got it let it dry overnight!
Finally I cut various sized hearts out of tissue paper and used pva to randomly attach them!
Finishing flourishes, I used decorative lace tape to seal the top and bottom edges.
Now to find some junk to fill it with, shouldn’t be too hard!
