Ribba shadow+box-740123

Published on April 20th, 2013 | by Jules Yap


Shadow box thing

Materials: 50 cm Ribba frame, piece of 3mm MDF, 2 cans of flat white spray paint

Description: 1. I removed the glass from the frame (but you could keep it if you wanted). I cut a piece of MDF to fit the frame, for a back, and painted it white.

2. I measured my largest ornament (it was the yellow horse on the bottom row) to get the size of the squares. I ruled the squares onto the MDF.

3. I sawed 3 cm strips of MDF and painted them white, including their front edges.

4. I cut them to size and glued them in place to make little shelves.

5. I put the frame back together. It was fiddly, but easy enough, and I’m happy!
