I just LOVED how this fun crafted shadowbox turned out.

Pink and Plum Plant Box

I love keep wood natural whenever possible, so I painted the exterior of the box with a soft peachy pink color and the very top of the box with a pretty plum acrylic paint.  I left the entire inside of the box it’s natural raw wood color.

And how fun are these pictures… I just placed my plant shadowbox right on top of a whole Monstera Leaf and it almost matches up perfectly – ha.

I also thought using a silk fern leaf would be so elegant instead of the monstera leaf.  Maybe painting the box in shades of green, too.

  1. I love this idea. My daughter is always wanting to decorate her room with fake plants and I never quite agree but this Monstera leaf shadowbox looks like a fun project we would both like. Pinning now!

    1. Ah, I love that! Yes, it’s a fun way to bring in fake plants, but in a pretty way. Share a picture if you end up making one. 😉
