Make a tool box toy chest in a western farm theme by using vinyl from StyleTechCraft. This is a sponsored post.
I was asked to turn a tool box into a “treasure” toy chest for a little boy recently, and happily accepted the creative challenge. I was given the new tool box and permission to decorate it as I saw fit. I decided to use vinyl from StyleTechCraft because I know how well it adheres, how vibrant the colors are, and that the design will withstand lots of use by little hands. Since the recipient’s family owns a farm and he loves animals, I went with a cow pattern and a western theme.
Tool Box Toy Box Supplies Used
- Large plastic tool box/tackle box
- StyleTechCraft Gloss Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
I measure the sections on the top and cut rectangles out of the red glossy vinyl. I rounded the corners on the rectangles so they matched the plastic pieces. Transfer tape was used to easily place the rectangles on the tote.
I used a western font to cut the child’s name from white vinyl. I also duplicated and resized some sheriff badge stars to create the designs on the other sections.
A cow pattern was traced in my Silhouette design studio, and I cut it from white vinyl. I measured the different sections of the tool box so I could cut the white vinyl cow pattern into sections to transfer to the toy box tool chest. Since the tool box was already black, I didn’t have to cut black vinyl. The white on the black background creates the cow print pattern.
Isn’t it fun how vinyl transforms a basic tote? I love this makeover! Now the tool box is perfect for a little kid’s room and ready to be filled with rocks, feathers, Legos, or any other treasures a child wants to hang on to!
