    Let's Do This!


    Step 1:

    1. Measure the inside of the crate. Our dimensions are 6 3/8 in. x 6 3/8 in.


    Step 2:

    1. Cut a Deco Tile to fit inside the crate. Tip: We used the center as a point of measurement due to the design on the Deco Tile.


    Step 3:

    1. Peel adhesive backing off the Deco Tile and adhere it to the inside bottom (which will become the back) of the crate.


    Step 4:

    1. Paint the top edge of the crate with a color of choice. Tip: We used 1 tsp. of white acrylic paint with a drop of color.


    Step 5:

    1. Repeat the steps for the other two crates, or as many crates as you’d like to make.
