All the best pirates have a treasure chest! Make your own from a simple tea bag box!
For your tantalising tea bag treasure chest box, first paint an old tea bag box brown, top tip, you may need to do a few coats.
Finally add some gold glitter glue for that extra sparkle.
Now you can keep all your hidden treasures inside!
Once it is dry you can now draw on the detail with a black pen. The edges, the straps, key hole and the wood effect.
Use gold paint for the edges and the bolts. And mix a lighter brown for high lights and the straps. You may need to go over the black pen detail once the paint is dry.
