  • Paint your treasure chest (i.e., egg carton) with the foam brushes. We recommend painting the inside first.
  • Let the paint dry and then decorate your chest! We opted for spring-themed stickers, but you can also use stamps, jewels, beads...anything you can successfully stick to your box.  Once it's dry...store your treasures!


  • An egg carton treasure chest is the perfect size for storing special coins, jewelry, charms or other small trinkets. 
  • Be sure to paint the inside of your egg carton before painting the outside
  • Allow paint to dry before adding stickers.
