Don’t throw your old shoe boxes away! You can upcycle them for other uses, other than storing your old socks!
If you have a wall just crying out for decorations, then you can use the box tops to create wall art!
You can also maximize the box bottoms to create tiny shelves. You can either paint the boxes just like these, or another idea is to line the inside with pretty prints using a gift wrapper and some glue.
You can also cover the box top with a pretty fabric which you can use as a jewellery organizer.
