1. Lightly sand the treasure box, getting rid of the rough edges. (This step can be skipped, if desired.)

2. Decorate the lid of the box with paper, picture, and embellishments, as desired. To get a “decoupage” look, have your child tear the paper into small pieces. With the paintbrush, apply a thin layer of glue or mod podge to the surface of the lid. Carefully stick the torn paper into the glue or mod podge, making sure that each piece is firmly pressed into the glue (no edges sticking up). Allow the glue to dry, then repaint with the glue over the surface of the papers. The top layer of glue or mod podge will give the project a “sealed” or varnished look.

You may also desire to decorate with some paper scraps covered by a picture and some embellishments, without doing the decoupage look.

Here’s a look at some different styles that my kids came up with. My son used paper scraps to make a “smiley” face on his.

Your child may also enjoy decorating the inside of the box.
