After the holidays my home was a little over run with boxes and packaging that I just couldn’t throw away. I also had a lot of left over wrapping paper and craft supplies and I began making DIY Wall Decor from a Re purposed Shoe box Lid.
This is not only the perfect time to craft due to the large amount of boxes around my home but I love being able to display those family photos that we took throughout the holiday season.

DIY Wall Decor from a Re purposed Shoe box Lid
- prints from Shutterfly
- shoe box lid
- peel and stick chalkboard
- chalk markers
- a pen or marker
- craft knife
- wrapping paper
Grab your shoe box lid and your photo. Measure the space in the center where you want your photo to be and make a mark around it making sure to leave a space around it for cutting. Don’t worry about leaving a mark as you will be covering that with wrapping paper and chalkboard paper anyway so feel free to be messy.
Lay the chalkboard paper on the outside of the shoe box lid and cut out the center. Leave a little bit of overhand because the sticky parts will hold your photo in place.
Place your favorite photo inside and add a couple pieces of tape if necessary to hold it in place. Smooth out the edges.
Wrap the entire shoe box lid with wrapping paper and cut out the middle part that you would like exposed. I left a border of chalkboard exposed for decorating with chalk markers, there is no wrong or right way to do this part, use your creativity.
Use tape to secure the ends and basically wrap the shoe box lid like you would a present, it’s that simple. Add your own special touches to the chalkboard and change it up from time to time because the best part about using a chalkboard is that it is erasable!
