"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Holiday Trio Hanging

By: The Designers of Deco Art

What three things make the holidays great? This painted Christmas wall hanging answers "Family, Fun and Friends."  Great for hanging by your Christmas tree or by the front door, this decorative Christmas craft is a great reminder of what is important this holiday season.  Have some other words that describe the holiday season for you?  You can easily make this hanging decoration say whatever you'd like, from Family, Fun, and Friends, to Ho, Ho, Ho!

Trio Painted Christmas Wall Hanging

Materials:

  • Americana Acrylics in Bright Green
  • Americana Acrylics in Santa Red
  • Americana Acrylics in Pistachio Mint
  • Triple Thick Gloss Glaze, 2-oz. Brush-On
  • Glamour Dust Gold
  • Dazzling Metallics Writers in Gold
  • Aleene's Tacky Glue
  • Foam brush
  • Small scissors or craft knife
  • Three scrapbook papers in holiday print, 8 1/2" x 11" sheets (We used The Paper Studio, Red & Green Polka Dot, 379-2006/ 879890 and 'Tis the Season Stripe, 379-2006/879882, and The Paper Patch, B663 Antique Holly on Scarlet.)
  • One yard of 1" wide ribbon (We used red/white stripe.)
  • Lo-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Three 3" x 5" unfinished wood plaques

 

Instructions:

  1. Paint sides of each plaque, overlapping back and front edges slightly, painting one of each Americana Acrylic color. Let dry.
     
  2. Apply Triple Thick Gloss Glaze over painted areas; let dry.
     
  3. Cut 4" x 6" piece from each scrapbook paper. Apply thin coat of glue to front surface of each plaque, applying glue evenly to entire surface. Lay plaque face down on back side of paper piece, pressing firmly to remove any air bubbles. Turn right side up and smooth out any wrinkles with fingers.
     
  4. When glue has dried completely, trim paper close to edge of wood on front. (This is done most easily by placing plaque facedown and trimming closely with craft knife. Small sharp scissors can be used as well.)
     
  5. Use Gold Dazzling Metallics Writer to paint words on plaques; while paint is wet, sprinkle words with Glamour Dust. Let dry.
     
  6. Referring to photo, lay plaques facedown on clean flat surface in desired position. Fold ribbon in half. With loop end at top, glue ribbon to backs of plaques. Trim ends of ribbon streamers.
     
  7. Helpful Hint:  A hair dryer on low-heat setting can be used to assist in drying glue quicker and preventing wrinkles.
