DIY Tea Box

DIY TEA BOX! If you love having different flavours of tea you’ll love this! 🙂

Hello Everyone!! 🙂

This post is how to create your own unique tea box, I have a slight obsession with different flavoured tea and herbal teas. My Christmas present from my sister was a tea box that she had made especially for me and it was full of different types of tea for me to try.

I have asked my sister to write down below how she created my tea box and after I’ll make a list of all the different flavoured teas and where you can buy them from. 🙂

I have also added in at the bottom a picture of my Tea Box! 🙂

  1. First I bought the box! The best one I found online was from an eBay store called Woodenland and they stock a huge variety of unpainted items ideal for DIY gifts. I bought the 16 section unpainted tea box.
  2. Next I painted the whole box in some left over off-white wall paint, I used Crown Breatheasy Cream White.
  3. Next I masking taped off the first part of the union jack, the cross, I painted that with an acrylic mix I made up and then repeated the process with the second cross over the top.
  4. Once the crosses were dry, using paler versions of the cross colours I decorated the crosses, one with some simple flowers and one with simple polka dots.
  5. I then moved on to the centre where I had already drawn my text and decorations etc, all that was left to do was paint using the acrylic mixes from before.
  6. The metallic paint I used along all the edges and on the text frame is Rangers Liquid Pearls in Rose Gold and the Glitter along the other edges is Rangers Stickles Rose Gold.
  7. The inside I left the off-white and then filled with various tea bags from Tesco!
