Upcycle A Plastic Container For Christmas Treats

Many containers these days are almost too good to be thrown away, like this nut container that I had. So instead of throwing it away, upcycle them! I cleaned it out and then decorated it to add some Christmas treats in to give as a gift and can even be used as a Christmas decoration.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

I first painted the container with some The Crafter's Workshop White Gesso, about 3 coats and waited for each coat to dry before painting the next one. 


Then I dry brushed on some red acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I then used my finger to rub on some DecoArt Metallic Lustre Wax in Gold Rush.


I then painted some Creative Embellishments Poinsettia Set chippies with red and green acrylic paints and also rubbed some of the DecoArt Metallic Lustre Wax in Gold Rush onto them. Layered them up and adhered them to the top of the container with a hot glue gun on top of some gold glitter leaf vines from Prima that I have had for years. Added some half pearls into the center of the poinsettias and dry brushed on some white gesso over them. Then added a ribbon around the lid and I was done.


Interested in the products I used? Products that are still available are linked to multiple shops below, for your convenience.
Lists may contain affiliate links where possible at no cost to you, what so ever. Affiliate and product disclosure can be found here.
I design for several companies because I genuinely love their products! Anything I recommend on my blog is something that I genuinely love and regularly use. I buy most of my own supplies. However, I do receive some free products to work with, and I sometimes make money for the projects I make. I DO NOT get paid for product reviews, I give my honest opinion about the products I use, and I will never recommend a product that I do not like or would not use.
