wood star shadow boxes

Bring a Nautical Americana touch to your favorite space with these easy paint-washed star shadow boxes!
Step 1

In one of your disposable cups, add a generous amount of paint. Dilute the paint by adding small portions of water and stirring until the paint lumps dissolve.
TIP: Test the diluted paint on the back of your shadow box. If needed, add water or add paint until you have the desired paint-stained look you want on your star.

Step 2

Paint the inside, outside and front edge of your star shadow box with your diluted paint.

Step 3

Cut out the star shape from patterned scrapbook paper to fit inside your shadow box.
TIP: Use a copy machine to make a copy of the open side of your shadow box, cut out the inside shape of the star to make pattern.

Step 4
Attach your star shape inside the shadow bow with double-sided tape.
