I am changing my color scheme so the paint I will be

using

today is wave release chalk paint and the color of steel. to give these two pieces a good even coats of these normally when painting these boxes the wood is very dry so i find even when using wave release chalk paint it usually takes at least two coats because that wood really soaks up paint so I'm going to give these boxes and drawers two or three coats of paint I'm going to put them in the oven at about 135 degrees because that's the lowest temperature my oven gets and they'll be dry in about 5 -10 minutes I'm also going to add some scrapbook paper to this from this pack of paper called brutal day by crafter square that you can find at michael's i love this one here so this is the one i'm going to go with i've cut out some pieces of this is hands down my favorite paper pack.

I have cut pieces that are large enough to cover the outside of the box. Now I didn't write down the measurements for this, but it's

easy

enough to measure the size you need and just order. I cut it out by hand and then I cut pieces that I'm just going to place in th The center of the four sides of my drawers and the box itself and in the part of the drawer that has the cutout. I'm going to go ahead and place my scrapbook paper right over the cutout. you don't need to buy a stack of paper or a pack of paper to make this hobby lobby joanne's michaels has open stock scrapbooking paper you can get for a dollar well it's four for a dollar in the hobby lobby so that's where i like to go so you can really get creative and make this your own and really have fun with it since i have these stacks of paper which is what i'm using because i don't want to spend more money than i have i'm going to go for to weather these boxes and to do that, i'm going to use some tim holtz weathering ink in the walnut stain color and a stiffer brush to apply it on the last two videos.

Some subscribers have asked me if there is an alternative. other form of distress other than using the ink pads i personally find this to be the easiest way for me. I also found that using oil pastels is also an

easy

way to distress. I don't have much luck using paint. I can't get it to blend. I can't get it to blend. shading correctly and that's just a technique and that's a technique I don't know yet or haven't mastered yet but nonetheless I've mastered the technique of using an ink pad and distress brush and I think that's the way easier For me, I think when you're having fun it's really about finding what works for you to get the best result, so with this I'm just going to age the edges of the paper and the box itself just to age. sort of a toasted marshmallow

look

if you like I'm incorporating some of this decorative nautical rope you can get from the dollar tree because I love this stuff it's so rustic because the thickness of the rope was a little too thick i unraveled it because there are three pieces that are twisted together and I'm only going to use two of the three pieces I didn't like how thick and bulky it

look

ed using all three pieces but I still wanted to incorporate this rope and found that just untangling it and using both pieces I was getting the thickness that I was happy with so I'm going to take the two pieces that are rolled together.
I'm going to tie a knot at one end because I'm going to make a handle for my boxes and I want to make a handle on each side of the box. so I found a size that I was happy with and you can see here what I've done with it, then I'm going to take and place some hot glue on the knots and I'm going to hot glue my handles to each side, okay , so I'm going to apologize in advance to those of you who don't want to see this, but I had to show you that this is the gnarliest hot glue burn I've ever had in my diy history while I was gluing the knots on ally called my name and i looked away to see what i wanted and i was pulling the trigger and as i was pulling the trigger the glue went right on my finger oh my word it hurt like nothing i've ever felt before when i had to remove the glue from this burn, I found out that putting mustard on them ahead of time is a trick kayla taught me. going in and out really helps take the itch away and i also found these clear waterproof bandages from nexacare really help because you can put them on and they are waterproof and they stay on your finger and they really protected my finger from the air and the burn so i had one of these, I would say for almost eight weeks because this burn took forever to heal and I will tell you that the only thing my doctor told me is not to pop the blister to leave the fluid no matter how hard it is, it was very difficult for me to do it because really just wanted to stick a needle in there and pop it but if you pop it it will or can cause an infection so the doctor told me to fight the urge not to pop it and just to keep it covered keep it clean and so if I found the best way to do this was to use these bandages and it really was a lifesaver when I burned my hand there in the oven, that one was pretty bad.
I used these too but the one in the oven didn't blister because my skin actually stuck to the burner but with this it took about seven weeks to heal and I no longer have fingerprints or feel on this finger ok , let's go ahead and do some DIY for this next step. I picked up these milk jug bottles that I bought them at Michael's. They come in a pack of four for four dollars. I love them because they already had the lid on. I took and traced the lid and cut a piece of my decorative paper just to put it on top because I didn't.
I don't want to paint the top, I thought just tying some scrapbook paper to the top would be a nice finishing touch. I'm also going to take some scrapbooking paper and place it along the neck of the bottle just to add more of a decorative feature something other than yarn I thought about making twine but already incorporated the rope into this and eat this bundle of paper mine has a sheet for the belly belt, I thought I'd just cut some of the strips and add them to the top here. I did not do it. show it off, but i also wore out the tops of the caps.
A couple of alternatives that you can use, besides the bottles I bought from Michaels, would be these dollar tree milk jug bottles, although these don't have a lid. you could very easily put saran wrap over the top then put some fabric and tie it up and really give it that homemade feel or if you are someone who drinks starbucks these frappuccino bottles are perfect and you don't even have to paint the lid just put a piece of scrapbooking paper on top to cover the starbucks logo now we need to fill this with something so let me show you what i'm going to do i thought this would be a fun way to gift either alpine cider or swiss apples miss hot chocolate that's funny you can get a 12 box of alpine apple cider packets at walmart for 1.98 now i'll tell you it took all 12 packets to fill a jar of apple cider when it came to hot chocolate it only took about six packets but with the hot chocolate i didn't want to fill it all the way I filled it to the point at the bottom of the neck here because I wanted to fill it with more freeze dried marshmallows now this is a gigantic bag i got from amazon i got it with the white and colorful marshmallows if you are interested in these you can find the link in my amazon store in the description box below and again i thought it would be fun to add more marshmallows on top of this look how fun this hot chocolate is it looks amazing it just looks so fun and this hot apple cider is such a fun way to give these items away budget friendly too ok with cuteness or no we're going to put this together for the boxes before we put the jars in i wanted to add some of this decorative piece of paper you can get at the dollar tree i'm going with the brown because i'm a rustic brown person again be creative make it your own but i thought that this brown would go perfect I didn't want to use a white because it was going to be too marked and I thought this was perfect, I'm going to add a little e n the bottom just to fill some of that empty space that opens up the space then I'm just going to put my jars in for this box two of the jars fit perfectly so I thought it would be fun to give away one of each the hot chocolate and hot apple cider.
To finish it off I got some more scrapbooking paper and there was a page that had these little circles that looked like labels so I cut them freehand and to give them a more finished look I used some foam tape from Dollar Tree. it's a puffy ribbon that elevates things so I went ahead and put some on the back of the pieces I cut out and to matte or frame them I went ahead and added them to a dark brown cardstock just because I wanted to dress it up a bit I think which gives it a more finished look and i went ahead and cut around them in a circular motion did i say that circle right thats a word i have trouble saying my tongue just doesnt want to say but i went ahead and cut around because i didnt like the boxed square look and again we're not looking for perfection we're just looking for that homemade hot chocolate and handmade feel i feel like you can get away with a perfect imperfect diy and these cute little tags here i am i'll put it right in front of the bottles and there you have an adorable, stinky and inexpensive way to give the gift of hot apple cider with hot chocolate using these ca jars from the dollar tree and the milk jugs from the dollar tree or your bottle of frappuccino or michael's if your michaels is still open now let me show you what i did with t the drawers this is the shell of the drawer the outside of the drawer i made the rope a little longer now if you want to use some better hot chocolate because you're gifting this to someone who maybe likes starbucks you can find these cans at walmart for about five bucks a piece you could even put coffee in these mugs if you want when you open the cans the hot chocolate actually comes in a bag so i went ahead and filled them with starbucks hot chocolate and i used my colored freeze dried marshmallows and the white ones and for these you can fit a bottle in each , so yeah the smaller one will have a little tighter fit but it still works and again I'm going to fill in that empty space with the shredded paper because I feel like it really it adds to it i feel like it looks too empty without it and yeah i like how it looks if you don't you don't have to but i really think it ends it well now with these i went a bit different for the label because i thought they would be funny if i added a tag i could actually write on and from now on so here's my cheap diy cheap dollar tree gift idea using these boxes milk jugs string i'd say this could be a diy tree $100 and this gift idea will cost you less than five dollars and I think it's a really fun way to get these items.
