A fun DIY project for Easter!

Easter is a fun holiday full of Easter egg decorating, scavenger hunts and family events. To make this fun and festive holiday even better we have created a step by step guide on how to make a Easter Box. This DIY requires a low-moderate skill level as there are tight corners to cut, but with the right tools makes the work easy.

For this project you will need:

Step One:

Measure out and draw where you want to cut the wood.
Here is a guide for what we did but you can make it any size you want.

Step Two:

Once happy with your markings its time to cut the wood. We used a 18V ONE+ Cordless Flush Cut Jigsaw to cut all of the wood but for the straight cut you can also use a circular saw or a mitre saw for a perfect straight cut.

Step Three:

Sand down your edges to they are nice and smooth to hide minor flaws in the wood. We used a 18V ONE+ Cordless Corner Palm Sander which worked well to get into the corners on the ears. 

Step Four:

Drill through the two side of the wood where your handle will go. Do this before putting together the sides so its easier. We used a 18V ONE+ Cordless Brushless Drill Driver.

Step Five:

Nail your sides together. We used a 18V ONE+ Cordless 16 Gauge Nailer as a low-medium setting so not to crack the soft wood. We recommend doing the thinner sides first as they are a bit more flimsy.  

Step Six:

Drill holes into each end of your handle for the srew to go into. 

Step Seven:

Screw into place your handle from each side on the box. You can use wood filler to hide the screw if you want a flush finish, just put a bit over the screw let it dry and then sand down in line with the wood. 

Done! Now its time to paint and fill up with Easter goodies.
