This project is a fun one that's good for both kids and adults. It involves taking plain wooden boxes and decorating them so that they become beautiful. The finished project can then be used to give gifts in, used to hold candies or chocolates, or just for decoration. Here's how to get started.

- Plain wooden box;
- Acrylic paint;
- Embellishments; and
- Foam paintbrush.
If you are finding it hard to pick out the different materials needed, don't worry. Here are some tips to help you choose the materials you need:
- When selecting your paint and embellishments, choose colors that work well together and help to reinforce the theme of the box. Remember, embellishments can be of any size and made from any material you like. The embellishments are key – they will set the theme and feeling associated with the box.
- Keep in mind that the color of the paint will help to reinforce the theme. For example, using bunnies as the embellishment and choosing paint in a pastel color, will give your box an Easter theme.
- It is probably easier to choose the embellishment first and then match it with a paint color – but that doesn't mean that you have to do it in that order. Choose the colours and embellishments that you like – that is all that matters!
