DON’T MISS: Do it yourself – home organization projects

Required material:

  • cardboard boxes (choose the dimensions yourself, according to what suits you)
  • jute material
  • fabric glue, super glue or glue from a gun
  • acrylic paints of your choice
  • scissors
  • clips

Step I:
Open the boxes from the top, and cut the jute into the dimensions of the boxes.

Step II:
Coat all the edges of the box with glue and start gluing the jute from the sides first.

Attach them to the edges with pliers so that the jute sticks well to the box.

Then, glue the edges of the jute to the bottom of the box.
Do the same on the inside of all the edges of the box.

If you want, you can paint jute in a variety of patterns and geometric shapes.

You can also add a bow, buttons and whatever else comes to mind that would fit with the interior of your home.

Also, our advice is to “tuck” the box inside into a fabric or an old pillowcase, so that everything you put in it will look nicer.
This do it yourself project is proof that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on expensive decorative items, it’s even more interesting when you make it yourself!
