Father's Day Gift Box

I was stalking checking my local Dollar Tree for more of the adorable birds I like to use in my crafts when I found these rooster figures.  The rooster was cool, the crazy wire legs were not so cool.  No problem!  I could still use the part I liked to make a fun, functional gift for father's day (or a teacher gift!)  I paired the rooster with a small wood box to make this French provincial-esque business card holder.

Project estimate:
  • Rooster, $1
  • Small wood box, $1
  • Crackle paint, on hand or $2 and up
  • Glue, on hand
Total:  $2 and up

Step one:  Paint the box with crackle paint, or make your own crackle paint.
Step two:  Remove the wire legs from the rooster figure.  I used pliers to pull them out carefully.
Step three:  Use hot glue to attach the rooster to the box.

This quick and easy project makes for a fun gift.  If you don't like roosters, try a different figure on top.  This would make an adorable tooth fairy box with a tooth on top, or maybe a trinket box for baby's first haircut with a cute little baby shoe on top.  There are so many possibilities!
Have fun crafting and creating!

    I love the vintage style of it! Totally looks like a decades-old treasure. Brilliant dollar store upcycle.
