One Christmas, I got one of those store bought wooden boxes that had a quote on it that was suppose to be funny, but I always thought it poked fun at marriage and did not really reflect my marriage...so I stuck the darn thing in the donation box.  Well, I saw something on a friend's Pinterest and decided I could make something positive from that old box...

I covered it with paper, glued on scrabble tiles that spelled out the names of the family(which I have masked out for privacy reasons), attached a test tube from one of many that my friend batgirl sent to me, attached a few buttons and cut glitter paper,  and there you go, a piece of wall decoration!

I also made the wire and button flowers, but you could easily put a real flower in there...






Hope she likes it!

It looks a lot better in real life with the glitter and the names spelled out...really, it does! Grin

Thanks, Lindy...it looks better and means more when you can see the names of everyone...it was fun to layout the scrabble tiles to spell out all the names!

The button flowers are so easy to do...I got a bunch in a swap and now I include them when i can!

I think it's a great idea all the way around.  I will have to see if I can arrange my family's names into so something like this.
