Winter White is where my heart is heading. Crisp hues of white mixed with shiny metallic details is a must for mixed media. Any addition of nails heads and studding is always super chic and classic. These dotted details are found on furniture to fashion. If you have spare shoe boxes or jewelry boxes this is a great face lift project that screams Designer DIY.
Cover boxes with white paper or use spray paint or buy new ones. Mine came from the Container Store http://www.containerstore.com/shop/giftPackaging/giftBoxes?productId=10003735
Hit up your local hardware store for upholstery tacks and thumbtacks. Push them into the boxes, create patterns, spell out your initials- get creative! Use for a decorative accent on display- also makes a great gift wrap.
