So this is the treasure chest that I needed to make:
So I started by buying a little wooden treasure chest from Michaels and some little coin sized circles. I took the treasure chest and taped off everything that needed to be hand painted red:
Next Laci and I painted the rest of the spots gold, it was after I started this that despite how much fun Laci was having I realized that spray paint on this portion would have been much faster and easier, but then I couldn't have had help from an adorable munchkin. After the paint had dried I took off the blue painters tape.
Although I forgot to take pictures of the red painted part you can see it and get the idea. Then I used my cricut or hand cut the gold vinyl to put on the treasure chest:
Then I painted the "coins" and after they were dry I put a gold vinyl palm tree on them. Jake's have (2) palm trees, but I think I did pretty good getting one on these:
I wish I had painted the inside of the treasure chest gold, and I still might, I just need to pull it back out and do so:
Overall, even though it is a mini version of a real treasure chest, I think we did pretty good, what do you think?
So sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been REALLY busy and although I have a backlog of things I want to share with you... sometimes life gets in the way.
