April Flower Box Challenge
Are you excited about the April FLower Box Challenge?
With kids out of school and staying home day after day it can feel a little like Groundhog day, am I right??? SOO why not whip out those old dusty tools and some scrap pieces of wood and make something to show for it at the end of the day.
Heck get your teenagers involved cuz I know they’re bored too. What a great time to teach them some basic building skills that they can build upon and use for the rest of their life. Plus you get a flower box out of the deal!
I am so excited to see what you guys come up with!
If this is the first time you’ve heard of it here’s an overview for you.
For the first 2 weeks of April I’ve set the challenge for us all to make a flower box. It can be as simple or as fancy as you’d like. Oh and the winner gets a $5 Home Depot gift card sent straight to your email!!
Get creative! Use things you already have (this isn’t a rule, it’s just to help you get creative and be able to stay home)
Take a look at your scrap pile, find some pallet wood, use an old chair or chest. Just get creative and have fun.
The point of this challenge is to get you to use and improve your building/ crafting skills!
If you don’t have a ton of experience using power tools then this challenge is going to be great for you. I’ll be showing you an example of a very simple flower box, (like the one in the picture above) that you only need basic tools for, that will be great for a beginner.
I’ll also have a flower box tutorial that will be for intermediate skill levels and may require a few more tools.
And finally an advanced box for those who want more detail on their box and would like to test their skill level.
Even if you’re not comfortable using power tools enlist somebody who is to make the cuts for you, or to help teach you how to use them! It’s not as scary as it seems after the first cut is made.
In order to be put in for the challenge and prize you’ll just need to make sure you are:
