Life is too short to have a boring mailbox. I’m not saying to glue plastic flamingos all over it with flashing lights (although that would be really cool!), but a little decoration wouldn’t hurt! The key to this project is to use an ultra thick varnish to seal everything in! I made this for my friend, Sadie Jo.
I used a metal box and covered it with spray paint and decoupaged stamp-themed wrapping paper. I added wire wrapped accents, colored marbles and sealed the whole thing in outdoor-proof varnish. It won’t hold up forever, at least not in Arizona, but it’ll be nice for a season or two. Then you can whip up a new version!
If you don’t want to use it as a mailbox, you can set it in your garden or art room to use as storage.
Peace, love, and glitter!
