By:

Embellish a candle box with painted leaves and carved texture for a rich autumn accent. This candle box would be perfect on your autumn table, even for Thanksgiving. Would also make a great hostess gift.


Leaf Carved Box



Materials:

  • Walnut Hollow® #17020P Candle Box
  • Walnut Hollow® #4004 Carving Set-4 Pieces
  • gold metallic paint
  • dark green paint
  • paper towel
  • paint brush
  • pencil
  • sandpaper
  • spray varnish


Instructions:

  1. To prepare wood for painting, use sandpaper to lightly sand entire wood surface. Remove dust with paper towel.
     
  2. Use pencil to draw leaves in a random pattern on top and sides of box. Draw free hand, use a stencil, or trace a real or silk leaf.
     
  3. Use brush to paint each leaf dark green.
     
  4. Use gouges to carve grooves in the wood except for the leaves.
     
  5. Use small gouge to carve veins in each leaf.
