How do you make a room in your house or office a reflection of you? Where do you start? There is a quick and easy way, that won’t take a bite out of your wallet, to add a very personal, beautiful touch to your furnishings.
One great home decorating tip is with a customized shadow box to the style of your rooms. Once you get this art down you could even make some extra cash building boxes for others. To make a centerpiece out of an ordinary box, I will give you some empty shadow box ideas.
To begin you need to decide what size.
Simply run down to your local hobby or craft store to see the dozens of empty shadow boxes available. The choices can be a bit overwhelming. Just keep in mind where you are going to display your box and pick the best one for your new craft. For instance the bathroom usually requires only a small box. A small box can be used on top of a desk. The opposite is true also, look for bigger sizes to fill large spaces.
Find what style you like.
You can make a box for yourself, or give a gift personalized to a friend or loved one. Golf is a excellent theme for a personal gift. You could include inside some indoor-outdoor putting carpet, a ball and sand, and some old driver covers. This would make a great conversation piece for a home office space.
In your kitchen, some dried or silk flowers and fruit in your shadow box will create a bountiful harvest feel. A smaller version would fit well in your bathroom areas.
For the pet lover the animal themed shadow box is a great addition to their home. Dog bones and paw prints, or some of your cat’s favorite toys arranged with pictures of your animals show how much you love and care for the four legged members of your family.
Like sports? How about adding some miniature basketballs, baseball bats, or footballs available at your local craft store. For the bedroom you might like a Hawaiian theme. Some sand, a miniature palm tree and a lei would create a Hawaiian project.
If you are itching to make a room filled with your personality. Jot on down to your local craft store where a few supplies plus your imagination can give you a wonderful conversation piece. Or build some for other people and grab some extra cash.
