This Fallout Lunch Box Will Make Lunchtime in the Wasteland More Fun

It’s okay if you didn’t get your hands on the limited edition collectible, because now you can turn any lunch box into a Fallout lunch box. Just print out the artwork, add some paint and Mod Podge and you are ready for a picnic in the Wastelands. Please make sure it’s disarmed before you open it. You never know what might be inside!

This video is one of a series of Fallout-themed projects.

DIY Fallout Lunchbox



download the artwork from
lunch box
mod podge matte
paint brush
gunmetal gray metallic paint


Download and print out the artwork for the front and back of the box. I re-sized this art from photographs of the Fallout 3 collector’s edition lunch box. Trim out the artwork.

Paint the sides of the lunchbox with gray metallic paint and cover any pattern on the sides of the box you chose. Just dab the paint on so it looks messy and weathered. Make sure to cover a little bit of the edges on the front and back as well.

Apply the artwork to the front and back of the box using a thin layer of Mod Podge Matte. Don’t use too much, just enough to adhere the paper.  Then apply another thin layer of Mod Podge matte to the front back and sides of the box. Don’t apply too much, or brush the paper too much, or the ink will smear and the image will become cloudy.

Let the lunch box dry completely. Once it’s completely dry, you can add another, thicker layer of Mod Podge matte with out having to worry about the ink smearing. Once it dries, your project is done!
