I love functional art. I frequently walk around my home and think of how to improve my life with things I can make for myself. And then I like to share them with you! One of these, came about when a particularly crazy tissue box cover kept affecting the zen of my room, with colors and patterns that were an eye-sore to me. So I hauled out the scratch pad, brainstormed with my smart hubby and came up with a wooden tissue box cover. Of course you can change it up in any way that enhances the style in your living space, office or classroom.

This craft is suitable for all ages and skill levels and is so satisfying to display once completed!
