Got an oversupply of boxes from all the online shopping you’ve been doing? Don’t throw them out just yet! You can upcycle these boxes by transforming them into decorative storage boxes. How exactly? It’s pretty simple! Buy abaca ropes to cover the box with. The wider the ropes, the better! All you have to do is securely wrap the box with abaca rope, row by row. Once that’s properly attached, grab a katsa cloth. The katsa cloth will cover the interior of the box and let at least two inches flow out to the top of the box for added design. Now you got yourself a storage box that’s completely upcycled and looking stylish. You can store things inside while using it to decorate your shelves too! If you’re not a fan of abaca ropes, you can simply replace it with any cloth and it will be just as beautiful!
