Cheap and Cheerful Crafts: Wooden Storage Box
For less than $4, you can get a sturdy wooden box (like this one) and decorate it for just about any purpose. Paint it. Decoupage it. Stain it. Stick some treasures or even a gift card inside and you're all set. This craft is easy enough for anyone who can hold a brush or sponge and would be a fun activity for a holiday gathering. Or instead of buying gifts to exchange, invite some friends over for cookies and coffee and pick names when everyone arrives. Set up a fun craft and each person creates a box (or other craft item) for the person whose name they have selected. Trade creations at the end of the party and no one goes home empty handed. Cheap. Cheerful. Creative.
