I am a sucker for a re-purpose project. So when I ordered my quarterly supply of Bath & Body Work’s Strawberry Tart foaming hand soaps I was more excited for the boxes. Because this quarter I planned to repurpose the shipping boxes into wall art. I can see my entire family doing a collective eye roll right about now.
The incentive to order Bath & Body Works’ Fresh Strawberry Tart soaps or 3-wick candles online is the gingham pattern boxes. #noaffiliate
Over the year I shared how I used the fun Bath & Body shipping boxes for storage. I wish more retailers had a bit more fun with their shipping boxes. Girls like me would re-purpose them into a patriotic centerpiece.
The shades of gingham shipping boxes were perfect to create wall art for our daughter’s bedroom/guest room.
HOW TO REPURPOSE SHIPPING BOXES INTO WALL ART
- scissors or box cutters
- packing tape
- old frames, picture frames or wood trim pieces
- shipping boxes, pizza boxes, retail boxes
This is the easiest project. I used a pair of scissors to cut along the “seams.” I used the packing tape to either attach the shipping box to the frame and/or tape two cardboard pieces together.
The gingham pattern is very forgiving when I needed to add two pieces together.
I strategically positioned the Homegoods plant along the edge of her headboard.
Tip to retailers: The pattern needs to be on the interior side of the box.
Did you spot the framed wall art on the mantel in the master bedroom here?
The white frames and gingham didn’t work against the planked wall, but I knew they would be perfect in our daughter’s room.
I love the pop of color!
