So remember when I told you that I filmed a video at HGTV thanks to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores? I’m excited to finally reveal the craft that Marianne and I made for Jo-Ann during National Craft Month.
Herringbone painted keepsake boxes and trays. Cute, yes?
This is one of those projects that may look hard but is actually really easy to make.
The detail is really pretty up close.
I like the unfinished wooden products at Jo-Ann because they’re blank slates. I mean, there are a million ways to customize these guys for your own home or as cute DIY gifts.
I’d say you can make a box or tray in about 45 minutes, plus breaks for paint and glue drying time. Marianne and I used these rectangle pieces from Jo-Ann that are pre-cut which saves a ton of time.
Be sure to check out the other simple and clever crafts from HGTV and Jo-Ann for National Craft Month:

And next Tuesday, you can see Marianne’s last craft for Jo-Ann at HGTV. Hint: it’s a blast from the past.
Thanks again to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and HGTV for this bucket list experience. It was such a blast!
