embossed winter wood crate

This wood crate can add a touch of homemade to any room. Personalize it with an embossed Scandi design and paint it a cool wintery blue, such as Seaside Blue. Finish it off by filling it with yarn for a feeling of Hygge!
Step 1

Place the crate on a drop cloth (or cardboard) to prevent paint from getting on your table.
TIP: Painting a crate is a bit messy so dress appropriately, or wear an apron.

Step 2

Use a wide angled brush to paint the outside and inside of the crate. Apply one thick coat and let dry.
TIP: While the crate is drying, practice some designs with pencil and paper. Think of very simple shapes and patterns that represent winter.

Step 3

Once the crate is dry, turn it to the side you want to work on first. Draw a simple Scandi inspired pattern on the crate with a pencil and then go over it with the Dimensional Magic. Let dry for 24 hours before turning it to another side to repeat the pattern(s). Repeat for each side of your crate.
TIP: This project involves steps and dry times that take approximately five days to emboss all sides of the crate.

Step 4

Now, add a second coat of paint to the crate to create an embossed look with your dimensional patterns. Let dry.

Step 5

Wrap the crate handles with yarn.

Step 6

Finish the crate by adding some felt to the bottom to finish the base and provide a soft insert to keep its contents clean.
