Getting Ready for Holiday Boutique

Share it now!

Every year my painting group hosts holiday boutique (I will talk a little more about the boutique throught the rest of this year) but I wanted to give everyone a preview of what I am working on.

Hear is the final project

Red and White Gift Box









As I always do I search the end caps at Target looking for clearance items I can convert to really cute Christmas items.  I had been watching this cutie and when the box was marked down to $2.98 I snatched it up

First I wiped down the top (lid)…  didn’t need to do anything to the lower box as the white was perfect.   I used Target brand rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to clean the lid of any oil, grease or dirt that maybe on the top.

Next I spray painted the lid with Gloss Apple Red (note to self always wear gloves when spray painting as it is almost impossible to get red paint off of fingernails).   I used Rust-oleum Painters Touch spray paint and let me say i LOVE this paint.  I have used other brands of spray paint and hands down this is the BEST!!!!

Next I added red and white ribbon, little Christmas greenery, little white roses but then I ran into a problem in that I had no little red berries for accent.  So I pulled out the 3/8 unfinished wooden balls I see in mylittlewoodshop here

Spray painted these little guys with the same Gloss Apple Red (Note I used blue painters tape, turned it upside down on a piece of cardboard and it held the little balls really nice.

Finally I sprayed away
