Have you ever had a dream you wanted to achieve, but you needed to be reminded regularly to work on it? Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” I am a big fan of following my dreams, but I do need to be reminded. And, with a new little one at my house, I need sleep. And the most restful sleep is when we dream, right? So when I saw the materials for this DIY word art shadowbox from Darice, I knew what to make to add to my decor.
This dream DIY word art shadowbox decor was so easy and fun to make. I’m sure you will love it for your house. Even though I used turquoise paint for the background and kept the wood natural, you could paint it any color you’d like to match your home. You could even make it for a gift for friends or loved ones to match their decor. The possibilities are endless.
DIY Word Art Shadowbox Supplies:
- Darice Wood Shadow Box
- Dream Wood Script Word
- Paint Color of Your Choice
- Darice Foam Brush
- Darice Low-temp Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
To get started, gather all your supplies together and remove packaging.
Carefully paint the back of the shadowbox. If you choose to paint the entire box in one or two colors, do that now. If you are painting the dream wood script word, you can paint that now, too. Make sure the paint is nice and dry.
With a low-temp glue gun, trace the letters on the back of the dream wood script word. A low-temp gun is helpful since there are spaces on the word where the glue might hit your fingers. Center the wood script word and press into place in the shadowbox.
Your DIY word art is now ready to display!
