Your treasures deserve to be stored in a special place of their own -- why not keep them in a customized treasure box that you can make yourself?

What You'll Need:

  • Uncooked pasta (wagon wheels, cartoon characters, other shapes)
  • Cardboard school supply box
  • Yarn
  • White glue
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter markers

Step 1: Play with the pasta shapes on the box and come up with combinations that form interesting patterns or pictures. Do the same with pieces of yarn.

Step 2: Glue the yarn and pasta shapes on the box. Let the box dry for a day.

Step 3: Paint the box gold with the acrylic paint. Let dry for a few hours.

Step 4: Add surface details with glitter markers in contrasting colors. Now fill that sparkly box with treasures!
