With the winter months here, it’s time to get cozy and stay inside. While I love color, sometimes it’s nice to have a few neutrals around too. These simple stenciled tribal wood boxes are an easy way to change up my decor a bit for the colder months and bring in those cozy vibes. What I love about this project is that these boxes are super simple to make and they can fit anything from plants, to desk accessories, or even kitchen gadgets!

To begin you will want to paint your wood a solid color using one of your paint colors. I painted one set of wood pieces gray and the other set white. Then use the stencil and foam brush to go back over the dry painted wood with the opposite color to create the patterned look.

Once the paint is dry, use hot glue (surprisingly it works really well! But wood glue works too!) to attach the side pieces of the box together, and then I glued the base piece on the bottom. Once the glue has dried your box is ready to fill with a planter, pens, or what have you!

Then, come summer, I can easily paint right over it with a more vibrant color and different pattern stencil! It’s such a great way to change up my decor easily! And I love how smooth the DecoArt stain enamels were to paint onto the wood. The paint dried in minutes to a perfect satin finish and it had such great coverage that I only needed one coat!

So, what do you think? Do your planters and candles need a little winter makeover? When it is this cute, why not right?!
