DIY Mod Podge Wooden Jewelry Boxes

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing how to make these cute and easy wooden jewelry boxes. Many of you probably know by now that I love crafty jewelry, that I make them often and that I love keeping things organized. This most likely I got from my mom who loves any kind of boxes for any kind of things she can keep organized. All this said, when my mom bought these super cute set of wooden boxes I couldn’t resist putting my hands on them LOL. And here is the result

DIY Mod Podge Wooden Jewelry Boxes Tutorial

My mom is really obsessed with organization and one of het passions is “boxes”. She collects them and she labels them and organizes everything with boxes. When she bought this set I knew right away that I NEEDED to mod podge them LOL and turn them into some cute wooden jewelry boxes. I love the result and luckily my mom did too!

 What you need:

  • Wooden boxes {like chests}
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Matching fabric
  • Matching paint.
  • Mod podge or similar

In my case, I chose 3 sets of matching papers and matched the paint and fabric. BUT I mix them all. With Aqua set I painted the inside with pink, the yellow with green and the aqua with pink. The fabric I used was pink for all 3.

First of all make sure to clean all dust from the boxes.

Remove the hinges and locks and make marks so when you mod podge them you know where to put them back.


Paint the inside of each box including the lids.


I started mod podging the paper.  Beginning with the sides and folding a few centimeters on the top like the image above.


Then I placed a piece on top and cut following the shape. Then did the same on the bottom part and I finish it with a plain cardboard on the bottom.


Apply mod podge all over the scrapbook paper to seal it. Avoid inner edges. When you close the box it might stick.


Let it dry well for a few hours. Don’t close them or pile them until they are really dry.

Once dry, put back the hinges and locks.


The last touch is the fabric. It’s up to you if you want to cover all the inside of the box or only the base. My mom wanted only the base so I did. I used double sided tape to secure it and be able to change it later.


Do the same with all boxes you are treating!

TADAAAAA! Done all my 3 boxes!


Looke how they look together… I’m loving these wooden jewelry boxes and I wish they were mineeeee! But I’m happy my mom loved it too and is going to use them!

    These are so pretty! I really like the extra effort you went to by removing all the hardware and painting the insides. I totally would’ve tried to ‘work around’. I’m inspired to make some of my own. If your looking for another place to share your projects, stop by Etcetorize and join our Make it Monday party. (There’s a giveaway this week!)

    You did such a great job! These are absolutely adorable! I was just starting to think about Christmas and trying to figure out what I was going to do for all of the kids since I know none of them need more toys- these would be perfect for my nieces and foster daughter! They would love them and I can match the paper to their personalities. I love your paper choices and thank you so much for sharing your great idea! I pinned it so I can make these as soon as I get a chance!
