"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."

Using two different kids of paint, you can transform a glass vase into a work of art. For these Textured Puffy Paint Vases, use your imagination and create a unique design. Home decor craft ideas can help you add a personal touch to any space. You don't have to spend a ton of money to create these vases, either. Head to a thrift or discount store and pick up an inexpensive generic vase. Easy craft projects may seem boring or basic, but these vases are anything but ordinary. Be sure to choose eye-popping spray paint colors so your piece really stands out.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The look of these vases with the puffy paints can provide for more inspiration. You could glue on some rhinestones after the final,painting, or perhaps buttons, to give it further texture and eye interest. These would be great centerpieces for a bridal shower, or any type of function, where you would want to coordinate the theme and colors. Great idea, thank you for sharing!

WOW does puffy paint have no end to what you can do with it.These are super cool vases and I have seen some that were pricy but did not realize you could make them with dots of puffy paints. Would these vases not look pretty on wedding tables with flowers in them. I love that this can be done with any size and you can use a different color of spray paint and even make a different design. I like that Tanner gave good suggestions on even using this technique on frames or other pieces. Great video.

I can't believe how easy it was to make these! Seriously so quick to make and perfect for a centerpiece!

OMG! These would look so cute on a coffee table filled with fresh flowers. So looking forward to trying this tutorial!

Love this! I've been searching all over for these ceramic cactus vases I saw on Instagram and they look exactly like this! Spray paint them green instead of metallic silver and they'd look just like cacti. Definitely getting the supplies to DIY my own today! Thanks for sharing this. So inspired to make my own (and not have to drive three hours to IKEA-hahaha).
