Last week, I was browsing around our local bargain store (since I loves me a good bargain) and I saw that they had these cute wooden jewellery boxes for sale for $3.00 each. My wheels starting turning, and I became inspired to create a cute handmade (sort of) gift for my mom. #jewelleryboxflowerplanter
Total cost for this jewellery box planter was $6.50. The breakdown is as follows:
Wooden jewellery box: $3.00
Other greenery: $2.50
The other items I used (that I already had on hand) were masking tape, white spray paint, and gel Varathane stain in a dark oak colour. .
I then planted the pansies and the greenery inside, added some moss from my garden, and voila! A pretty planter. I chose the greenery specifically for its draping effect. It reminds me of necklaces and bracelets hanging out of a jewellery box, just like how my grandmother’s jewellery box used to be.
I love how it turned out, and I also love that I was able to use this gift as decor on our buffet table at my latest brunch get together.
I enjoyed the first one so much, that I made two more 🙂
That’s it for today folks. See you again soon with another post. Until then, have a great week everyone 🙂
