Party DIY {Wood Card Box}

I told you yesterday all about part of my issue with clementines, how there are always so many and how I have to find new ways to use them up. But, what I didn't tell you about was the awesome box they come in. That may seem a bit silly but for the price of the clementines, you get this incredibly sturdy wood box that once decorated can be used for any number of things. With a can of spray paint, you can easily redo this box making it fit to your specific esthetic. For showman's sake I went with a simply navy blue and adorned it with a chalk board card sign. However, the possibilities are endless. You can go so far as to glue rhinestones around the edge, create miniature bunting, or even tie ribbon and bows at the corners. The (short!) supply list is below and a super easy DIY follows. How would you use your clementine box?

:: Supplies ::
Clementine Box
Choice Color Spray Paint (I suggest 2 cans)
Decorations as you please

:: Directions ::
1. Begin by removing the netting from the box and wiping free of all debris.
2. Start spray painting the box in your choice color in layers. The wood is very porous so it is suggested to let each layer of spray paint dry before spraying again.
3. Once all sides are completely covered and paint is dry, adorn with your desired decorations and enjoy!
