I’m so excited to share, that for the final post in the Seasons of Home series, we’re all sharing projects completed with MMS Milk Paint! Not only is it inspiring for me to see my product used by such talented ladies, but it’s such an encouragement that they were willing to work with my brand as a sponsor.
So, I decided to do a fun, little project with it, and made some milk-painted gift boxes…
I started with papier mache boxes I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
And I mixed up some Shutter Gray and Tricycle, since those colors work well with the ribbons and papers I purchased and had leftover from last year.
I just brushed a coat of milk paint directly onto the papier mache boxes. That surface is perfect for milk paint, because it soaks right in.
I waited for the boxes to dry, which only took about 15 minutes, and then I embellished them with ribbons, etc. It was a quick and easy project and I love how they turned out!
And I like that these boxes can be reused year after year and I can store smaller Christmas decorations, ribbons, ornaments, etc. inside when it’s time to pack it all away.
And they are just cute.
Who wouldn’t love receiving a gift in a hand painted box, wrapped with twine, topped with an oversized pom-pom?
And here are some other projects finished with MMS Milk Paint and finishes – everything from mantels to corbels…
