  • Gift boxes

  • Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Paint in Red Wagon and Antique Sky

  • Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paintbrush

  • Martha Stewart Crafts Liquid Gilding in Gold

  • Martha Stewart Crafts basic brush set

  • Plastic toy animals

  • Glue gun


  1. Paint the lids of two boxes in Red Wagon and Antique Sky with the Vintage Decor paintbrush. Let dry.

  2. Paint the lid of one box with Gold Liquid Gilding with a basic paintbrush. Let dry.

  3. Paint three animals in the same colors of the box lids and let dry.

  4. You can mix and match the colors of the animals with the box lids, but we paired each painted animal toy with the corresponding box lid for a clean, modern look.

  5. Use the glue gun to adhere each animal topper to its corresponding gift box lid.
