Halloween Gift Box

With just a few craft supplies, you can create decorative and seasonal gift boxes or storage boxes for your home. This box is perfect for the season with the scary pumpkins embellishing it!



Decoupage Box with Pumpkin Motifs

Supplies Needed:

packaging box or shoe box with lid (This large box from a game contained only 1 CD rom and was really a waste of
  material. Instead of landing in the paper trash, it got recycled and becomes a great Halloween gift box.)
- white and orange acrylic paint
- crackling medium
- paper napkin with pumpkin motifs (the best is to find a motif  that covers half of the napkin)
- modge podge or paper napkin applicating glue
- paint brushes


1. First you will paint the box with 2 coats of orange paint letting it dry after each coat.
2. Now paint an even layer of crackling medium on the box. Let it dry throuroughly before continuing.
3. This is the fun part! Paint white paint over the box. The crackling medium almost immediately starts to crack. Make sure not paint over previous brush strokes or the effect will be ruined. You can get larger cracks if you use the blow dryer to dry the paint.
4. Once the box is dry, the paper napkin motif gets added. Follow the instructions in steps 3 and 4 in this tutorial for applying the napkin.
