Garnlindad skolåda -
Yarn wrapped shoe box

Om man kan klä gamla glasflaskor med garn så borde man kunna göra detsamma med gamla skokartonger, eller hur? /
If you can dress up old glass bottles with yarn you should be able to do the same thing with old shoe boxes, right? 

Den här gången använde jag betydligt tjockare garn (för stickor nr 8 ) och det gick snabbt att täcka lådan. I övrigt använde jag en skokartong, decoupage-lim, en pensel och lite mönstrat papper. Vira inte garnet ända upp till kanten för då går det inte att sätta på locket längre. Jag täckte den översta kanten med papper i stället, som ni ser på bilden högst upp.
——
This time I used the much heavier yarn (for knitting needles No. 8) and covering the box went quickly. Besides the yarn, I used a shoe box, decoupage glue (or you can use Mod Podge), a brush and some patterned paper. Do not wrap the yarn all the way to the top because then you won’t be able to fit the lid on. I covered the top edge with paper instead, as you can see in the pictures.

Lockets kanter täckte jag också med garn och avslutade det hela med att täcka ovansidan av locket med mönstrat papper som jag klistrade fast med samma lim som garnet. /
I also covered the edges of the lid with yarn and finished off the hole thing with a piece of patterned paper that I glued on top, using the same glue as with the yarn. 

Just nu innehåller lådan… garn. Ganska passande, va? Tavlan i bakgrunden kommer frånMultiple Personality, Etsy. /
At the moment the box contains … yarn. Pretty fitting, huh? The print in the background is from MultiplePersonality, Etsy

 I have three shoe boxes upstairs that I haven't figured out how to use yet...maybe I should do this.

There ya go! It would then become something cute to store things in! I now I can't wait to get my hands on a shoe box to do this.
