Altered Matchbox

This is a very creative and crafty art that you can make by yourself easily. It’s also very fun to make because you can do all sorts of designs to it. The main object you need is a matchbox. It can be any kind of matchbox because you’d probably cover it up with paint and such.

Before making it, you might want to consider the theme. It could be you, music, colours, Alice in Wonderland…etc!  From the themes you might also think about the different types of materials you might want to use like acrylic paint, buttons, ribbon, wood (like sticks to give it an organic feeling?) and more to highlight the theme.

Here are some examples of altered matchboxes with different styles/ idea:
