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...
Last one...how much did you sell them for? Trying to figure out if I can bump something else for these...they are sooo cute and look pretty easy!
