Found this dirty old breadbox at a Yard Sale. I knew with a little paint and thinking out side the box(no pun intended) this would turn into a unique decorative storage container.
I took the oval decor out of the center of the box and saved it to use as a template when creating my center pieces. Gathered up old pieces of scrapbook paper, some seasonal, some to match my kitchen.  Since I wanted to change my centerpiece to match the season, I used double sided tape and magnets for an easy trade out!
I found an extra large magnet (from our orthodontist) and hotglued it to the breadbox since this will always stay on.  Cut up the magnets, used double sided tape and tape them to whatever seasonal template you want to use. easy as 1-2-3.
The goodie box is all dressed up for Halloween! Let the fun begin!
Out of Site, out of mind... sort of.  Great place to store extra Christmas cookies for parties, extra Halloween candy for unexpected TRT, or everyday treats during every other day of the year

Found this breadbox at a Yard Sale and it looked like it wanted some attention.  This little box is the centerpiece for all my parties and the center of attention in my kitchen!

Be Well,
