I just LOVED how this fun crafted shadowbox turned out.
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.
- Start by painting the exterior of your shadowbox in a gorgeous orchid acrylic paint color.
- While the paint is drying, add white polka dots to your silk monstera leaf. Measure out the inside of your shadowbox and cut your leaf to size.
- Using a hot glue gun, adhere the corner of your monstera leaf to the shadowbox. Slowly continue to glue the leaf down.
- Enjoy your new shadowbox!
