Need a DIY storage box with a bit of farmhouse flair? Look no further! I am going to show you how to add an iron-on design to burlap and add it to the front of a wood box for a quick and easy storage project. Make any box into something that is perfect for your farmhouse with this technique. This is a part of burlap Craft Lightning week where we are sharing 15 minute burlap crafts all week. You can catch up with day 1, day 2, or day 3 and you will also want to scroll to the bottom of this post for today’s ideas.
Supplies needed to make this DIY storage box:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, a small commission will go to this site.
- Wood box (any will work)
- Burlap piece large enough to cover the front
- Iron-on in the color of your choice
- Cricut machine (click here to see which I use)
- Cricut cut file (click here to access)
- Weeding tools (optional)
- Cricut EasyPress or Iron (click here to see why I like the EasyPress)
- EasyPress Mat (optional)
- Tacky glue
Open the cut file in Cricut Design Space here and cut from iron-on. Be sure to size for your box and mirror the design before cutting. You also want to cut with the shiny side down on the mat. Weed any excess vinyl from around your image as well as the centers of all letters. Weeding tools make this a bit easier but are not required.
Measure and cut your burlap to size. Then place your iron-on design directly on the burlap. Press according to the instructions for either the EasyPress or for your iron. Be sure to look up the Cricut recommended settings for each. Peel back the carrier sheet to reveal your finished design.
Add the burlap piece to the front of your DIY storage box with a little tacky glue. Allow to dry completely then display anywhere in your home.
You can add storage items to this decorative box or just use it as a display for some farmhouse finds.
