So I went to work on them with some left over house paint. The easiest way to paint them is from the bottom to the top, allowing them to dry at the half way point.
Christmas Gift Bag Makeover With House Paint and Cereal Box
I don't know about you but I have a bunch of gift bags saved up from all different occasions but somehow when I go to wrap a gift I never have the right bag. This weekend my family has their annual birthday gathering were we lump all of the birthdays into one so I was in need of several gift bags. But of course all I had were Christmas bags.
I used a 2" inch brush so the painting went pretty fast.
One the bottom was dry I just flipped the bag over and painted the top.
As decoration I decided to use some silhouettes that I found on line. I printed them out, then glued them to an old cereal box and cut out the shapes.
They weren't quite dark enough and I wanted to cover the edges so I added a coat of black paint.
To make the shapes more 3 dimensional I added a some additional card board pieces.
