I had a blast this weekend at a Family Party and wedding reception. My Nephew Patrick was married in August in New York, and the Illinois reception was yesterday. I was able to participate by helping with the table centerpieces.
Here is what we did to make these:
First, we painted all of the boxes with an off white/cream colored acrylic paint. (2 coats actually).
We sprayed Gold webbing on 1/2 of the boxes, and dabbed on Gold Creative Inspirations Paint on the other 1/2. You can see the 'dabber' I used to apply the paint. Once dry, we sparyed on Glimmer Mist.
Here is a closer look at the paint dabbed on the box.
You can see in this picture, we also painted ~ 1 1/2-2 inches of the inside of the box. We took a piece of styrofoam about an inch less than the height of the box , about an inch wide and approximately 3 inches long and hot glued it into the boxes.
