This was one of those things I would&#;ve much rather bought than DIY, and if asked I&#;d say yea get something made well and sound instead of dealing with the mess and time of sourcing random materials to make it- I know all about that frustration!  The issue comes though when I can&#;t find something I like or that has features I want.  Sometimes I&#;ll go further and imagine up exactly what the perfect one would be and spend too much time trying to find what maybe doesn&#;t exist.  So, we make one.

Part two of the inspo for this jewelry box was wanting to play with gray and leather, a combo that I found in one of the kitchens from yesterday&#;s postand somehow immediately thought I should incorporate that into the design of a box (?)  Let&#;s go.

-wood box (mine is from Michaels, about &#; square)
&#;wood filler
-foam brush
-glue gun
&#;natural tooling leather
&#;leather awl
-thumb tack

Remove any hardware on the box with a screwdriver and fill in the remaining holes with wood filler.  My box had a square engraving on top that I didn&#;t want, so I filled that with wood filler too.  Once the filler is dry, paint the box with at least three coats of paint with drying in between.

Cut a strip of batting the same width as the inside of the box and roll it up.  The batting length I used was about &#;.  Use a glue gun to glue down the end of the strip.  I used two layers of batting and the rolls ended up being too thick, so I&#;d say sticking to one layer is sufficient.

Cut up the velvet to wrap around each roll of batting and use the glue gun to glue it on.  The velvet doesn&#;t have to reach all the way around since the exposed batting will just be on the bottom side of the box.  Make sure to leave excess velvet on each end of the batting to tuck under once squeezed into the box.

I shoved in the rolls of the velvet covered batting into the box while tucking in the ends underneath each roll.  I also used a popsicle stick to further tuck in the velvet on the sides.  The rolls should be so tightly packed that gluing them in isn&#;t necessary.

For the handle, cut a strip of leather about 1 inch wide and &#; long.  Fold it in half and use a leather awl to pierce a hole near the edge for the thumb tack to go through.

Hammer in the thumbtack onto the front side of the lid of the box to secure the handle in place.


I wanted this box to be for organizing both rings and earrings because while my favorite storage method will always be trays, it was getting a little annoying to rummage through.  This way everything is neat and clearly visible.

I was originally going to paint the box white (who knew it?) but then gray called me when I kept seeing it in kitchens.  I adore this color SO much.  It&#;s a healthy alternative to a stark white and still has the same minimal feel, it&#;s just a bit more interesting, yea?

DIY Marbled Jewelry Box &#; Using A Cigar Box

DIY Marbled Jewelry Box &#; Using A Cigar Box

I have always been a very messy person, and my jewelry situation is no exception.  Typically it&#;s scattered across the top of our dresser and on my nightstand, not to mention the bathroom, my car, in the crevices of my purse&#;.etc.  As I was staring at the jungle of our dresser the other day, I decided I needed to check my egregious clutter habit and tame my jewelry once and for all!

As it so happened, an old cigar box my dad gave me was conveniently positioned amongst the various odds and ends.  Problem + solution all in the space of five minutes!

And so, I give you: the DIY jewelry box &#; from a cigar box!  I&#;m really loving the marbled paper, leather, and brass details.  You can make this in an afternoon and use any kind of smallish wooden box you have kickin&#; around.

DIY CIgar Box Jewelry BoxNow this is one of those instances where you must do as I say, not as I do.  The  beauty of creating a DIY project is that it&#;s really just about experimentation.  I try it one way, and it doesn&#;t work. I make a mistake and have to go back.  Sometimes I get fed up and toss everything in the trash.

Luckily this time I took some cues from my three-year-old (hands on your tummy and deep breaths, mommy) and managed to MacGyver my way to the finish line. So&#;some of the following photos won&#;t be accurate depictions of what your project will look like.  But never fear! Just read the directions and you&#;ll be fine, I swearrrr.

DIY Jewelry Box


  • Cigar box
  • Spackle or wood putty
  • Fine sandpaper (say&#; grit)
  • 2 paint brushes, one medium & one small
  • White high-gloss paint (any kind)
  • 9 foam cylinders &#; I found mine at Michaels
  • Hot glue gun
  • 9 x 3&#; piece of leather
  • Ruler
  • X-acto Knife
  • Mod Podge
  • Marbled paper
  • Craft wood &#; I used two pieces, x x 3&#;
  • Brass thumb tack


First, wipe down the cigar box with a damp rag and remove any hardware.  Lightly sand to remove any grime, and wipe again.  Fill any holes with spackle or wood putty and let dry completely.  Then, paint the craft wood as well as the entire box inside and out with the white paint.  If you don&#;t do this, the paper will look dark and icky after you Mod Podge it!  So paint it, and let dry.

Meanwhile, take out the foam cylinders and the hot glue gun.  Glue three end-to-end, and repeat until you have three little marshmallow snowmen.  Try not to sing Frozen songs.  Maybe go give in to your hot chocolate craving.

With the ruler and X-acto knife, cut a strip of leather that is about 3/4&#; wide and set aside.  Take the remaining leather and cut into three equal strips, then use the hot glue gun to wrap each of the strips around the snowmen.

When the cigar box is dry, take the interior measurements with your ruler.  On the reverse of the marbled paper, create two corresponding rectangles&#;one for the lid, one for the base&#;according to the measurements of the bottom of each plus the sides.  This will ensure that the pattern continues onto the sides of the box.

Cut out each of the pieces (you should have 10 in all).

Then, follow the directions on the Mod Podge bottle and découpage each piece of paper to its corresponding surface.  Let dry completely.

Hot glue the leather pieces into one corner of the box.  Measure and cut one piece of painted craft wood to create a divider.  Mod Podge some marbled paper onto that piece, and hot glue it into place like so:

Repeat to create a second, smaller divider like this:

Now mark the top of the box lid in the center where your handle will go, and take out the extra strip of leather and thumb tack.

Fold the leather in half to create a handle, securing the two ends with hot glue.  Then, take the thumb tack and push it through the center at the top.

Add a tiny amount of hot glue to the spoke and back of the leather, and push the entire thing into the box top.  The final result should look like this:
