Gather wooden crates from local boutiques, flea markets, farmers' markets or wine shops. Tip: Many local shop owners will set used wooden crates aside for frequent customers who request them. Keep in mind that wine crates are usually the perfect size for holding toys, sports gear, games and books.
Use electric sander and sanding pads to smooth down rough surfaces and corners.
Choose a side of the crate on which to stencil name. Using a stencil kit, draw the letters on the face of the crate with a pencil.
