How to Decorate a Jewelry Box

By Christi Aldridge, eHow Contributor How to Decorate a <a target=jewelry Box thumbnail" title="" class="photo" data-credit="jewelry box and necklace image by VisualEyez from Fotolia.com" longdesc="http://i.ehow.com/images/a06/rm/8n/decorate-jewelry-box-800x800.jpg" />

Jewelry BoxMake your own personalized jewelry box using items you can buy at your local craft store. Decorated boxes also make lovely gifts or crafts that girls can do at a birthday party. They can take their finished jewelry boxes home as a party favor. Stow your trinkets inside your box and display it where people can see it, on top of a dresser or bathroom counter. Things You'll Need

  • Jewelry box
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Craft glue
  • Decorations such as beads, buttons, ribbons and shells
  • Tweezers
  • Decoupage medium
  • Pictures
  • Paintbrush
  • Felt
  • Scissors

Instructions

  • 1. Paint your Jewelry Box using acrylic craft paint. For a sparkling, feminine Jewelry Box, use gold or silver paint. A more vintage-looking box could be muted pink, green or beige. Or, for a more natural finish, use wood stain or a clear coat. Allow the box to dry.

  • 2. Glue on embellishments. Glue seashells around the top edges of the box to create a beach-theme box. Make a box for a child by gluing small plastic toys to it or fuzzy pom poms. Feathers, trim or rocks are other options. Decoupage magazine pictures or photos printed from your computer onto your box using decoupage medium and a paintbrush. Create designs such as swirls or hearts by gluing colorful beads to the top of the box. Use tweezers to place beads where you want them. Scratched CDs that you don't need anymore can make a cool mosaic when you break them up and glue them on.

  • 3. Cut a piece of colored felt or velvet to fit inside your box. This will serve as a liner so your jewelry won't get scratched inside the box. Glue a mirror to the inside lid of the box. Embellish the inside lid of the box with rhinestones for an extra touch of sparkle.
