DIY Wooden Trinket Box

DIY Wooden Trinket Box
Does your store carry Heidi Swapp’s DIY marquee letters? I’m swooning over them! I couldn’t find all the letters I wanted at my store, but it did give me a chance to check out the other crafty items in the collection. I spotted some gorgeous papers and stickers, but couldn’t resist picking up this sheet of rub-on embellishments.

DIY Wooden Trinket Box

I love the look of rub-on stickers on wood, so I gathered a few supplies to create a wooden trinket box:

  • Heidi Swapp Rub-Ons
  • unfinished wood box
  • paint
  • paint brushes
  • scissors

I started by painting a layer of white paint over the entire box. Any paint you have on hand will work, but I chose to use acrylic paint since it dries quickly. Once it was dry,  I painted over the white with pink and gold. The gold paint is “20K Gold” by Hand Made Modern and can be found in Target’s DIY/craft section. It is a gorgeous metallic gold!

DIY Wooden Trinket Box

I separated the rub-on designs then arranged them on the box.

DIY Wooden Trinket Box

The rub-ons were easy to put on. I just used the wooden stick that it came with to rub the design until it transferred onto the wooden box. It’s fool proof really.

DIY Wooden Trinket Box

These rub-ons were such a fun and unexpected find. I even have plenty left over for another project. I’m looking forward to trying more of Heidi Swapp’s collection for Target.
