Taking your recycled candy box to the next level, a treasure trinket box! This project is very simple. A Whitman's candy box works best.

Total Time: 1 to 2 hours, dry Time

Steps:

  1. This project is very simple. It begins with spray painting the box and candy tray and allow to dry. For a more rustic/shabby chic look, I added a thin layer of gray chalk paint.
  2. The knobs were added for feet to elevate my box. Another was added for a knob on top. These were also painted black, with chalk paint added after dry. After all the parts were dry and knobs were glued, I added some rope trim for more detail. It was more of an after thought. I painted it to match. Final touch, a stencil.

I hope most people will consider the rope trim and stencil, essential rather than optional. They give that little box so much charm.
