Does your store carry Heidi Swapp’s DIY marquee letters? I’m swooning over them! I couldn’t find all the letters I wanted at my store, but it did give me a chance to check out the other crafty items in the collection. I spotted some gorgeous papers and stickers, but couldn’t resist picking up this sheet of rub-on embellishments.
I love the look of rub-on stickers on wood, so I gathered a few supplies to create a wooden trinket box:
- Heidi Swapp Rub-Ons
- unfinished wood box
- paint brushes
I started by painting a layer of white paint over the entire box. Any paint you have on hand will work, but I chose to use acrylic paint since it dries quickly. Once it was dry, I painted over the white with pink and gold. The gold paint is “20K Gold” by Hand Made Modern and can be found in Target’s DIY/craft section. It is a gorgeous metallic gold!
I separated the rub-on designs then arranged them on the box.
The rub-ons were easy to put on. I just used the wooden stick that it came with to rub the design until it transferred onto the wooden box. It’s fool proof really.
These rub-ons were such a fun and unexpected find. I even have plenty left over for another project. I’m looking forward to trying more of Heidi Swapp’s collection for Target.
