Today, we're sharing another holiday gift idea that you can DIY. Spare just ten minutes and this gorgeous Modern Dog House Photo Box could be yours!
Here's your craft store shopping list:
- Wooden house shaped shadow box (pictured above)
- 1 lightly patterned 8.5" x 11" sheet of stock paper (marble paper is from Hobby Lobby)
- Metal clip
- Fun embellishments (like the bow tie and paw print stickers below) for the metal clip and outside of the photo box (also found at Hobby Lobby)
- Extra strength glue stick and glue gun
You'll also need to download or reference our quoted template here. (Note that the template dimensions are based off of the box suggested above.) When you have everything ready, print out the template on your choice of stock paper and cut out the house shape.
With your extra strength glue stick, apply a thick layer of glue to the back of the paper and nestle it inside of the photo box.
Embellish the metal clip as you please and then center and secure it above the quote with your glue gun. I love the rhinestone bow ties that we found because it reminds me of Pierogi's little bow ties.
You can also embellish the outside of the photo box. These paw print stickers adhered well.
And there you have it! Pat yourself on the back for another craftastic job well done. The box that we suggested in the shopping list even has hook on the back for mounting, so there's no need to grab any tools. Wrap up this gift and plop down on the couch because you're owning that holiday list!
P.S. Other customization ideas: paint the box, sticker a pup's name on the outside or inside base of the box or apply a gilded dog toy to the inside base of the box.
