DIY customised tea box in 4 Steps

IMG_6137 Hello and happy weekend. Sharing a new DIY today, which is super quick and simple. You might have seen it already on Instagram, if you follow Mahalolena. I also did something similar a couple of years ago. A customised tea box in 4 Steps. It doesn’t get easier guys.


  • Wooden Tea Box
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush
  • Decopage silk paper
  • Any conventional glossy sealer water-based (not visible in this picture, cause I forgot it – oops)



  1. Apply the mod podge onto the wood
  2. Cut out your paper and carefully cover the entire box
  3. Let dry
  4. Apply glossy finish

Fill up with lots of tea bags and enjoy with guests a relaxing tea time.
