I don't know about you, but I tend to accumulate a ton of random craft/decorating items that sometimes get forgotten in the depths of my office/craft room. Imagine my delight when I rediscovered this shadow box I had bought last year. Since I no longer work at Starbucks I have a ton of pins (which we would earn for various reasons) that are going unused. Unfortunately the back of this particular box was not very cute, black, velvet, and all around cheesy. My solution, cover it up! I pretty much recovered this backing like I would have a chair but instead of stapling I glued.
What you need...
• shadow box (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
• tan fabric
• glue gun
• scissors (preferably fabric ones)
This DIY job is pretty simple and self explanatory. I first covered the backing with tan fabric since the burlap was a little see through and the black would definitely show. I used the glue gun around the perimeter of the backing, leaving a little extra fabric hanging over the edges. I then trimmed the fabric so it was flush with the backing and repeated the process with the burlap.
I honestly used the burlap because it was what I had lying around, but I really do like how it came. Burlap does kind of go with coffee right? Those big burlap sacks of beans are often used to decorate coffee shops. You can of course use whatever fabric you prefer. I hope you try this out if you have any type of pin collection you would like to display. Let me know how it goes!!
