This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This is the type of box that would be perfect for a girls night in (preferably with wine) or for a fun family project. I love the blue confetti strips in the box.

Each Home Made Luxe box comes with step-by-step, detailed instructions on how to assemble the project. There is also a link to an instructional video which is a nice added source to have! I found the instructions to be very helpful and I liked how they included a lot of visuals.
Crafters Acrylic Paint in Spun Gold, E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive, 842 Paint Brush
8 inch Styrofoam disc, 12 gauge gold wire and 7 inch round mirror
The first step was to paint the styrofoam disc with at least two coats of gold paint.
I absolutely love gold and this a beautiful shade.
While the paint was drying I went ahead and cut the wire into 22 inch strips. The instructions said to cut 30 strips but there was only enough wire for 24 strips. Next, I bended all of the wires into a leaf shape per instructions.
Once all the wires were bent I stuck them on the most outer part of the styrofoam disc. The disc was still drying a little on the back side which is why you see a paper towel.
At first I wasn’t too sure how it was going to look with my craft skills, but so far it looks great! I’m so close to the finish line at this point. I put the E6000 super glue on the back of the mirror so now all that is left is to stick it on the Styrofoam disk.
BAM, voila, success! I was beyond happy with my results. I didn’t think it would look anything like the picture but I think it turned out close enough. I also like how it took me under an hour and looks legit- like it is store bought and not a craft project. I can’t wait to hang this in my bathroom!
Verdict: I think the Home Made Luxe box is really cool! Although they didn’t include enough wire for 30 strips, I had enough to still make it look great. I’m not the typical crafter but I really enjoyed this project! This box is perfect for someone like me: someone who wants to be crafty and DIY’y but is too lazy to get the supplies or look up a project. I love the ease of the creators already picking out the project and most importantly: doing the supplies shopping for you. This project made me feel accomplished, artsy and proud of my creation. Now I’m ready to do another project!
