Im thinking of making one of these in vintage Christmas style. There are a few pinterest.
Has anyone made one before?

My daughter made one at woodwork when she was about 13.

Where we used to live had a massive great shadow box built into the wall, we took it out left it on side of road and it went. We put a window in and walled up the rest. The place really needed another window.

You can make them out of a drawer though and put dividers in...

Use Google search: shadow box and then click on images lots of ideas there.

Just wondering if you made one Claire. I would love to have a go but a small version I think. May be just a heavy box with a picture frame on the front. Not sure . Good luck xx
