Thanks in advance for your help!
BTW - sent about 2 hours on your craft blog this morning! LUV IT! My hubby thanks you too.....peace and quiet for him without me nagging him to cut the grass!!
I'm glad you like it! Sounds like me & my hubby, haha.
Yes, you are correct for those wooden boxes. They are only $1 each (sometimes on sale for 70 cents!) at AC Moore. I paint the very top, and the very bottom with black paint - usually the acryllic paints that they sell at AC Moore or Michael's. I use a foam brush and just sponge the paint onto a bunch of them at once.
I sold both Xmas & Halloween ones. They sold VERY WELL at my craft fairs in 2008. I also used them to make "Snowman Soup" and I could not keep them on my table!
I hope that helps you all. I love this thread, SO many great ideas...
