My kids have a Halloween Carnival each October at their elementary school. Each class makes a themed gift basket to donate in a raffle, and this year I wanted to help by making the basket, or in my case a crate or box made out of wood. I have four kids at the school but with all we have going on I only volunteered to do two of them. Today I want to share the camping crate I made. You can see the golf box here.
I have been smitten with crates lately and have been needing an excuse to make one....
I Love it! (and that is just my camping stuff I threw in for the pictures, just for fun)
Not only is this cute little crate useful for carrying your camping gear....
So here is how I made it.
gift crates I made. (I believe I treated the gift crate in the second picture of that post, I didn't treat all of them) To make this all you need is one thing of 0000 steel wool, rip it into pieces and put it in a jar, then pour vinegar in the jar until it covers the steel wool, put the lid on and let it sit for 24 hours. Done!
I will be linking to these parties.
