Have you checked your Target dollar bins lately?
I bought each of my kids their own tin mailbox for $1 and yesterday we decorated them for Valentines Day. Here is how we did it:
1. Rip the tissue paper into strips.
2. Put a thin layer of Mod Podge over the mailbox. Then start layering your strips of tissue paper on top, covering the center of the mailbox and adding more Mod Podge where needed.
(Here is my 1 year old just having a blast with it!)
The best part about these is that you cannot mess it up! My 7 year old changed his mind a million times and just kept starting over, which was totally fine! Its easy to rip the paper off and try something else!
I intended on embellishing these just a bit more with ribbons and such, but this is for the kids, its their craft, so we kept it simple and just added their initials in vinyl to the front.
And that’s it!
