A seed packet box craft that is actually sturdy!
It’s been a while since we have done a metal surface makeover! So that is what we want to do today. It is a lot of fun to do metal surfacing makeovers. Whatever we make always tends to be very durable and last a long time.
The metal box we are using is from a Canadian brewery. My sister found it and thought it would be a perfect box to upcycle. She asked me to create a box to hold gardening seeds in. I loved this idea and think that you will too. We do have a link below though if you need help finding a great metal box.
I love the ideas that she comes up with for crafts. Did you know that you can receive a box of crafty goodness on your doorstep each month like this craft? Find out more here!
