A wooden keepsake box takes on a global flair with stencils.


    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • wooden box
    • 1" flat brush
    • hot glue gun and glue sticks
    • hand drill
    • cosmetic sponge
    • decorative knob
    • assorted drill bits
    • 4 wooden ball feet



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Paint the entire box Steel Grey using the 1" flat brush.
    2. Decide on the placement of the Jaipur Damask Accent stencil and apply it with the cosmetic sponge and Coastal Waters. (I applied it in five places.)
    3. Using the Aztec Mixed Media Stencil and White Birch, stencil on the triangles using the cosmetic sponge.
    4. Stencil on the dots using Muted Gold, the polka dot stencil, and the cosmetic sponge.
    5. Drill a hole in the center of the box lid, using whichever drill bit will give you the proper-sized hole. Attach the decorative knob.
    6. Paint the ball feet with the 1" flat brush and Steel Grey. Let dry and hot glue the feet to bottom of the box.
