Candle Gift Box and a few Eggs

I have been busy up in my workshop this evening creating this week’s DT project for Wild Orchid Crafts Youtube DT Channel…

This week’s project is a candle gift box.

My mother in law is now saving all her empty gift boxes for me to alter which is great, as I love coming up with ideas as to what to do with them 🙂

This is what this week’s project looked like “before”

 

A coat of Gesso,  a couple of licks of paint, some lace and seam binding and a couple of metal embelishments and this is what I ended up with
