How to Make a Wooden Tea Box with Knobs
Keep all of your favorite tea, hot chocolate and more organized and close at hand with this Wooden Tea Box with Knobs! Paint the box to match your kitchen and coordinate the color with your favorite decorative knobs from our Heritage Hardware collection.
Remove clasp hinges from compartments.
Mark the center of each lid and drill a hole 3/16".
Sand the entire surface of the box. Wipe down to remove grit.
Paint and let dry.
Adhere washi tape
Run a strip of washi tape along the bottom edge of the box and press firmly in place.
Center stencil on the front of the box, using painter's tape to hold it in place. Apply a small amount of paint onto the stencil using a sponge dabber. Let dry and lift off stencil.
Sand & ink
Lightly sand the surface. Ink edges.
Screw hardware & trim
Screw hardware onto the lids. Use bolt cutters to cut off excess screw.
Hand write, stencil or label the names of teas on the lid fronts.
