Upcycle Old Suitcases With This Pretty Floral Design

Old suitcases make great storage in a bedroom or hallway. Why not keep wellies or shoes inside?

Material required:

  • Old suitcase
  • Newspaper
  • Spray paint
  • Sharp scissors
  • Floral papers
  • PVA glue     

To Make:

  1. Remove any dark marks or dust from the suitcase with a damp cloth. Once completely dry, place on newspaper in a well-ventilated area (preferably outside). Spray-paint the whole case with a light coating of paint. Leave to dry thoroughly.
  2. Spray-paint the suitcase with a second coat of paint. This time, have the clasp open so that the whole case is covered with paint. Leave to dry completely.
  3. Use sharp scissors to cut out flowers in different sizes from the paper, including a few leaves and finer details. Coat the back of a flower with PVA glue, then stick it to the outside of the suitcase. Leaveto dry. Repeat with the other flowers. If necessary, apply a coat of PVA glue over the top of the flowers to keep them in place and act like a varnish.
