I troll my local Dollar Trees pretty frequently to see what new goods they have and what one location has that another doesn't. One day, I came across this unpainted DIY frame box with 9 "boxes". Each box is 2x2". As a lot of things do, it sat in my crafting room until the appropriate project came along for it. I created it for an SO swap as my partners SO loves Superman and comic books. I picked 9 DC characters that had their own logos (surprising how many of them don't) and painted each box with the primary colors from each of their costumes. Next I googled the logo images, scaled them down to 2x2", printed them out on glossy paper and pasted each one into the appropriate box. Acrylic paints and mod podge were used.

I think it came out well despite the fact that I choose the colors for each box as I was painting. I did my best to keep similar colored boxes from being right next to each other. You'll notice Robin and Flash have yellow walls on the left. I literally painted myself into a corner on that one! Flash was the last box to be painted and before I realized the double yellow issue, it was too late. Oh well  Undecided

I think this would be a great gift for any comic book fan young or old! Plus its an easy and cheap way to dress up their room  Wink All angles are pictured. (Its hard to see but the roof of the Wonder Woman box is metallic gold.)

I'm so glad I opened this at work, or my DH would start scheming to make one big enough to fit figures in as a display case. . .actually, now that I think about it, that would be a great idea!
