Christmas Mailbox
















Here are some pictures of a wood mail box that I altered. It was fun doing it. I painted it all white first and then I put the paper on using Modge Podge. I also sealed it with the Modge Podge. Gotta love that Modge Podge...LOL!!! I put the ribbon on with red line sticky tape. The flowers are actually flowers that I took off the stem of some flowers that I had. The white one I used a brad for the center and the red one I used a white snowflake button. I used my Sizzix to cut out the "let it snow" and the words "winter wishes"on the side. It is hard to see the "winter wishes" in the picture with the way the angle is. I used Stickles over the words to make them show up more. I also cut out a snowflake and then cut it up to fit around the knob that the flag goes down on. I thought that it just needed alittle something and that worked out real well.
I gave this one to my sister last year. I have more mailboxes waiting to be altered. I had purchased quite a few thinking I would get to them all........what was I thinking....LOL!!! I am hoping to get a few done this year. I'm thinking that I better find some time and start them soon.
Happy crafting,
Gail

  16. Great idea. I usually see everyone altering the Target mailboxes for Valentine's Day, but I really like the Christmas theme. Yours is beautiful.
