There is a jewelry box on Anthropologie.com that I instantly fell in love with. Oh yay, it’s only $168. But, I knew this would be something anyone could recreate, for well under that price. I find the jewelry box to be a beautiful contrast between the hard bark and the shining amethyst. Because I am a frequent shopper at Michael’s Arts and Crafts, I knew they would have similar supplies that I could work with.
Anthropologie.com “Twinkling Trove” Jewelry Box $168.00 – $198.00
You will need:
3″ clay pot $.89
- 3″ clay saucer $.79
- Super glue $2.99
- Amethyst/crystal lookalike $6.99
I chose to work with a clay pot and clay saucer as my “tree stump”, and the amethyst from a necklace chain as my handle. As always, be sure to place your project in a safe space that you don’t mind getting permanently ruined. Place your clay pot and saucer inside the box, outside. I placed the pot on top of an empty water bottle so that as I spin the clay pot while spraying, I wouldn’t have to touch the actual pot.
I actually started with the inside of the pot so that I could just flip it over onto the empty water bottle. Shake spray paint can for about 1 minute. Spray evenly over surfaces of pot and saucer.
Let dry for an hour and apply a second coat of paint if necessary. Let sit completely for about 3 hours, or overnight if possible. Squeeze a good amount of glue onto the back of your amethyst/crystal and attach to the top of the saucer.
I used a clay pot to keep the earthy vibe, but you could use a tin can, a paper box, or just jazz up a plain jewelry box you already have. Don’t limit yourself!
