Mother’s Day is fast approaching and you can make this colorful Mother’s Day DIY jewelry box with quilling strips. Mom will love this handmade box to store her jewelry. Plus it is really easy to make since the strips are pre-cut.
- Hinged Wood Box
- Brown Craft Paint
- White Craft Paint
- Super Gloss Mod Podge
- 3/8″ Quilling Strips (NOTE: quilling strips are just pre-cut paper strips in fixed widths)
- Paint Brush
On the top, I drew a pencil line down the center and added two different color strips on either side. Again, begin by placing them with the Mod Podge and letting the excess hang off. Trim with scissors after the strips are placed.
Once you have covered your entire box, allow the Mod Podge to dry completely. Then come in with some white craft paint and an extremely dry brush (it should just barely have any paint on it). Run that dry brush across the strips. The picture below has been brushed on the left and not on the right.
Allow that to dry completely then come back with 2 – 3 costs of super gloss Mod Podge over the entire surface. Allow to dry completely in between coats. This should make sure all of the small strips are secured down and protected.
Mom will love this fun and colorful DIY jewelry box. I was inspired by this tara multicolor box from Pottery Barn just in case you wondered how this idea came to be.
