Eid Star Decorative Box {Tutorial}

I decorated these Eid star boxes for my daughters to find after they solve the clues in yesterday’s treasure hunt. They will have treats and cash in them.

Eid Al Fitar, is a holiday that commemorates the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It will be observed by Muslims around the world this Sunday.

I love using this color shift paint as it makes the boxes have an extra look of shimmer. I received a few of these products for my role as Plaid Ambassador.


  • Paintbrush
  • Wood letters
  • Star decorative boxes
  • Awl
  • Glue
  • Colorshift paint
  • Vintage white paint
  • Brads (3)
  • Flowers (6)

I painted the stars with the vintage white to give it a base coat, then added two coats of the color shift paint. I did the same thing to the letters.

Once the paint had dried, I punched a whole in the middle of the star with the awl.

I added the brad to the middle of two flowers, then put the brad through the flower hole I just created. I closed the brad on the inside of the flower to hold it in place.

The final step is to glue down the wood letter to the top of the flower.

Actually, I thought it was the final step, but once the letter was on, I realized I didn’t like how it blended too well with the background and added glitterific paint.

I followed the same steps for the other letters to spell out the word EID.
