Making your own jewelry box is something that you can do if you own lots of accessories and jewelry. An advantage of this is that you can personalize the exterior of the box and you can also choose how many compartments you need for rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Making your own jewelry box is not as hard as you think. You can get some of the materials that you are going to use right at home.
Here are the simple steps on how you can make your own jewelry box without spending too much:
- Materials that you will need. Gather all the materials that you are going to use for the project so that you have everything that you need within reach. Some of the materials that you need for this project are: a small wooden box, paint, glitters, glue, a small mirror, felt paper, gems and charms and other embellishments that you would like to add to your jewelry box. If you do not have a small box, you can purchase one from a craft store.
- Lining the box. Use the felt paper to line the interior of the box. To do this, measure the felt paper that you are going to need for every surface inside the box. Use the glue to attach the felt paper to the box and wait for the glue to dry. It is important that you have felt paper on the interior of the box so that your jewelries won’t have any scratches.
- Attach the mirror to the box. When the glue on the felt paper is already dry, you can attach the small mirror. You will attach it under the cover of the box so that you can easily see yourself when you open your jewelry box. Use the glue to stick the mirror on the box. You might have to use glue gun if the mirror is too heavy for ordinary glue.
- Design your jewelry box. The last step is designing your jewelry box. Use your creativity and imagination. You can have a plain and simple box or you can have a jewelry box adorned with gems and glitters. The possibilities are endless! Just make sure that you let the glue dry on the box before you use the jewelry box.
- Security. If you want to have a latch and a lock for your jewelry box, you can purchase these from a hardware store and screw it on your jewelry box so that you can keep all your jewelries safe.
These are the simple steps on how you can make your jewelry box. Doing this will definitely save you some money as jewelry boxes that you buy from the store tend to be more expensive. You can also make this as a gift to your friends. When you have already made a lot of these jewelry boxes, you can start your own business and sell the jewelry boxes. You can even make your own jewelry and sell them too!
