Time to find some treasure! And in this case, the treasure is the old outdated box we found for CHEAP at the thrift store and turned it in to a beautiful, beachy-themed treasure box craft.
Treasure Box Craft that Is Upcycled!
Having family near the shore of Lake Huron, we love everything beach-related. When we had the opportunity to make a treasure box beach-themed, we didn’t say no!
The best part about this treasure box craft is that it is completely upcycled. You can take any box that you find at a thrift store, a dollar store, or even the back of your closet and turn it into something brand new! It is also fun to create a “before” and “after” photo too.
What made this craft a lot of fun was adding just the right amount of sparkle to it. Giving that as a final touch definitely was just enough to grab someone’s attention if they saw the finished product.
