Making a Shadow Box
I knew that I needed something on one of my walls so I went to the garage and found 1/2 inch by 4 inch lumber. I cut the size box that I wanted and glued it together. I let the glue dry and painted with watered down acrylics. Next I found old scraps of fabric and assembled a doll free hand. A couple of $1 store extras and you have a shadowbox. You can put anything you like in your box, I sew a little bit so I made the doll.
Approximate Time: 2 hours
- wood and wood glue
- acrylic paint
- fabric scraps
- permanent fine markers for face
- $1 store trinkets
- Cut wood to size of box wanted. (You only need 4 pieces.)
- Glue the box together.
- Let dry.
- Paint with a rag and watered down acrylic color you'd like.
- Put together your shadowbox scene. I used a doll, plastic flower pot, and flour sack.
