Pretty decorative boxes are one of my favorite things to have around the house (usually in little groupings with other candles or figurine type things). A lot of the time though, I love a box or container, but I’m not sure what to actually store in it!
It occurred to me that most decorative boxes are actually the perfect size to be a jewelry box, and with a few quick tweaks, they can be really useful around the house as well as pretty!
-decorative box with lid (this or this one are great options).
-1/4 yard velvet fabric
-straight pins and sewing machine
-hot glue gun or fabric glue
–cutting mat, rotary cutter, and ruler
If you make them about 1″ wide, then you can know how many you need to make to fill your box (a 5″ wide box would need 5 rolls, etc.).
Cut and roll all your pieces and pin in place for now.
Cut your velvet fabric into a rectangle that’s 1″ longer than the length of your batting roll and as wide as the circumference width found in the first step above.
Add more glue to fold in the sides one at a time, and then use a final drop of glue to fold the top flap down in place. Repeat process on the other side of the tube, and then with each additional tube.
Not gonna lie, I love that marble, pink, and gold combo together, but of course you can do whatever box or color velvet you like! I have a lot of dainty gold stacking rings, so I have to keep ring dishes and boxes all over the house or they get lost really fast!
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to make your own jewelry holder with whatever box you happen to love, and if you vary the size of the batting rolls, then you can have more or less rows to add your jewelry into.
Hope this DIY is just what you need to keep your space useful and pretty! xo. Laura
