Upcycle Home Decor Project: Featuring Mod Podge, Martha Stewart Paper, and a Mini Bowdabra Bow

This week on the Bowdabra Blog we are all about the upcycle, recycle, and re-purpose when it comes to home decor. I Home Decor Recycle found some great treasures on my recent trip to Goodwill and I thrilled to be able to share with you my upcycle projects.

One of the little treasures I found was a small wooden style dispenser. I am not sure what it exactly it dispensed but I knew immediately what I was going to use it for! My family has a love for ginger Altoids and I buy them in bulk. I thought this wooden style box would be perfect to hold them.

Using Antique Mod Podge, Martha Stewart cardstock , and a Mini Bowdabra Bow I was able to upcycle an adorable little candy holder.

Materials Needed:

 

Instructions:

1. Begin with a wooden home decor item. I bought a wooden dispenser at Goodwill for $1.99.

2. Gather Antique Matte Mod Podge and Martha Stewart cardstock – choice paper that will compliment your home decor project.

3. Apply the Antique Matte Mod Podge to the paper and the wooden box. Follow the instructions on the Mod Podge container. Let the wooden box fully dry.

4. Attach a strand of ribbon and hemp rope around the wooden box.

5. To make the Mini Bowdabra bow for the box: Place the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler onto the Mini Bowdabra. Cut 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half – place the wire into the Mini Bowdabra.
