Hat Box Love...

Do you love hat boxes????  Well, I certainly do!  Lately I've been on a roll painting, waxing and putting images on hat boxes.
Here, take a look...
These are made of heavy duty cardboard.  I've painted them with chalk paint and added beautiful Jeanne d'Arc Living handmade cards for embellishment.  

 I can't take credit for the hat boxes pictured below.  They were created by the artists at Jeanne d'Arc Living's headquarters in Denmark.  They are unbelieveably beautiful!   You can find them in my Etsy Shop.
When I started creating these hat boxes I just couldn't stop!

After mixing paints to get a powdered pink color, I decided to paint a set of angel wings.  I was fortunate to find a little rose pin to place in the center.  It's the perfect shade of pink.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!!!

They are so beautiful. You did an amazing job. The softest shade of pink and those rose prints on the white ones...gentle loveliness.

What a great idea to paint the hat boxes!! Now if I see any for a cheap price and do not like the printed pattern on them, I will just paint them!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
