Make a gift box or keepsake box for the super hero fan in your life! Inspired by the recently announced DC Super Hero Girls, this painted paper mache box is so easy that even young kids can make it with just a little help.
What You Need
- Round paper mache box
- Mod Podge (non-tacky)
- Red and blue acrylic paint
- Star hole punch
- Printed Wonder Woman logo
- White cardstock
- Paint brushes
- School glue
Begin by painting the entire bottom of the box blue.
Paint the lid, based on Wonder Woman’s shield, red on the top surface and blue on the edge.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
If you haven’t already, download and print a high-resolution Wonder Woman logo. I printed the original image at 20%. Cut the logo out, and use the school glue (lightly) to glue the W in the center of the lid.
While the logo dries, punch the stars out of the white cardstock, and glue them along the blue bottom. Lightly paste the stars about 3/4 of the way down the side of the bottom, leaving enough room at the top for the lid to slide on.
Once the school glue is dry, it’s time to Mod Podge!
Lightly brush a layer of the non-tacky Mod Podge on both the lid and bottom of the box. If you used an ink printer for the logo, don’t brush too much on the lid—the ink might begin to run! On the bottom of the lid, make sure the stars are glued on all edges for a smooth finish.
Finally, allow the Mod Podge to completely dry, and your Wonder Woman box is ready!
