DIY Glitter Gift Boxes

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesWe’re officially into 2018 and with that comes another full year of birthdays, holidays, and different celebrations to fit into your schedule. And what goes along with all of that…? Gifts!

Although today’s post isn’t about what to gift your friends and family, it is about a fun and easy way to wrap those gifts up! These DIY glitter gift boxes add a fun pop to an otherwise boring gift box and did I mention they are easy? 😉 Who wouldn’t want a glitter topped gift? I know I would!

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesI picked up these plain gift boxes at my local craft store and they were really inexpensive. They had a variety of different sizes and a few different color variations too!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • Gift Box
  • Craft Glitter
  • Decoupage Glue
  • Foam Brush or Paintbrush
  • Polyurethane Spray

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesUsing a paintbrush or foam brush, begin adding glue to one of the edges of your box lid.

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesOnce you have the entire edge covered in glue, begin to cover the glue with your glitter. Make sure to cover all of the empty space and really get a good coat of glitter on there. Shake of the excess and cover any bare spots as needed.

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesOnce you have the first side covered, move onto the second side and repeat the same process.

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesOnce you have all of the edges done, repeat the process for the top of the box lid as well.

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesOnce your lid is completely coated in glitter, place it in a well ventilated area and spray with a coat of polyurethane spray.

Allow the coat of polyurethane to dry completely, and then apply a second coat.

(This will help the glitter to stay onto the box a bit better without rubbing off onto anything and everything!)

DIY Glitter Gift BoxesAllow the box to dry overnight before using to package up your favorite gift.

These DIY glitter gift boxes are so simple to make and really add a fun “wow” moment to traditional gift wrap. Have fun with different glitter colors or even try an ombre effect!

Now all you have to do is figure out is what to put in the box! 😉
