I saw an old license plate in my storage building, and in the 98 degree in the shade weather, I immediately thought of Christmas. It was a 1966 Michigan License plate that stated “water winter wonderland”.
I decided to use a wooden tool tote to make a Christmas themed box.
I bought this Waverly chalk paint, the last time I was at Walmart. The color is crimson. Perfect for Christmas.
Next, after making a quick trip to Ace Hardware to pick up screws and washers, I connected the tag to the box.
First, I used an awl to make the holes to start the screws.
Then used the drill to attach.
And decorated for winter!
Of course you are not limited to Christmas to use this tote. How about the lake house, or change the tag to match the state you live in. You can pick up these plates inexpensively. I checked on EBAY and this one is worth about 10.00 but I picked it up for MUCH less.
Merry Christmas in July!
