Flip your box upside down and paint it. You can use whatever colors you like, but, if you are making them for a specific occasion, you might want to choose colors that go along with it, For example, if you are making a float for Independence Day use red, white, and blue; use green paint for a St. Patrick's Day float; or use green, purple, and gold for a Mardi Gras float. If you want to use the lid, get creative by gluing it into a different position on the shoe box bottom. Let any paint and glue dry.
Gather together miscellaneous supplies to decorate your float. A few ideas for supplies you can use are crepe or tissue paper, beads, foil, a small action figure or doll, ribbon, or glitter. Use your imagination to create an original float.
