DIY Jewelry Box


DIY Jewelry Box

This DIY jewelry box is the perfect project for a boring day in quarantine and it doesn’t require any special materials, everything you will need for his awesome jewelry box are materials you probably already have in your craft cupboard. I was searching Youtube for just the right project I could make using all materials that I already had and I found the perfect DIY jewelry box made with newspaper and yarn that I could put all together with none other than my trusty hot glue gun. I have always believed I could build or make anything with my hot glue gun so I was super excited to start this project as soon as possible. The thing I loved most about it was the fact that it had a distinctly Seventies look with swirling, decorative arches.
