Make a Wood Storage Crate

Carousel finished crate

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

It's easy to make a simple wood storage crate and stencil designs on it to fit your decor or a special occasion. We'll nail wood pieces together and I'll show you how to apply stencil decoration on wood. Make something unique that you can use for storage or as a container for making a gift basket.

At each class, there will be at least one door prize randomly awarded to an attendee – probably a craft supply item of some type that relates to the theme of the class. Past prizes have included a necklace kit, a polymer clay frame kit, and a craft stencil. That's my way of saying thank you for coming!

We recommend wearing old clothes in case you get paint or glue on yourself.

Minimum age

All ages welcome

What's Provided

We will provide all materials needed to complete 1 crate. This includes wood, glue, nails, paint, and tools to borrow including a variety of stencils. If you like you can bring stencils or acrylic paint colors you already own if you have any.
