Primitive Stacking Boxes

Here, I've taken 2 paper mache boxes and painted them a barn red. I also took a brown stamping pad and antiqued it on the lid, edges and corners. It made it look so much better than just plain painted. I hope you can see the stamping effect.

Then, I have a small 'holiday' file of vintage ephermera that I obtained from The Graphics Fairy and picked out, what I think are, the perfect graphics for these 2 boxes.

These would look wonderful on a mantel, as they are not too large or bulky, as some pantry boxes can be. It's so easy to make a vignette out of items like this...putting some pine sprays, teddy bears, and such, to complete the theme of what the graphics imply. I have set these on my primitive hutch...which I love, for the photo.

Total measurement of these is 11" x 6, and will be available in my Etsy shop very soon. You can always get to my Etsy shop by clicking on the bright blue button in the right column of my blog.

I hope this inspires you to try the same thing, and techniques, to create this warm, primitive Christmas decoration!
