Decorated boxes

Talking more about the year 2010… I just found these pictures of some wooden boxes that I decorated with paint, felt and/or decoupage. Here are the pictures and the ideas! I hope you will like it and find them useful.

I am also providing you the patterns for the ladybirds, the bees and the leaves: click here to download it; for the roses, it is sufficient to cut a felt disc of approx 8-10 cm (depending on how big you want the flowers to be) and then cut it as a somewhat irregular spiral. When you reach the end of the spiral, you'll have a small disc that will be the base of the flower. Roll it, glue it to the base, and you're done. Here is a link that explains the technique more in detail: http://www.danielleburkleo.com/2010/10/diy-yarn-wreath-with-felt-flowers.html




For this flower, you have to cut 5 petals, put them together, sew the end of one of them (in the pattern you can see the small dots where you have to sew) and, with the same thread, sew the other petals until you get the complete flower. In the center, you can glue a small pearl, if you like ;)
