DIY Jewelry Box ; Anthropologie Inspired

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.

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!
