DIY Jewelry Box

For rings and studded earrings!

This DIY was inspired by andreaschoice and anneorshine of YouTube. If you’d like to know

what materials I used specifically or if you’d like to watch the videos I pulled inspiration from,

you can find all this information at the bottom of the page.

Let’s get started!

Materials needed:

A box


Foam paint brush


Patterned duct tape




Making the box:

1) (Optional) Remove the top of the box and paint the remaining five sides of the box a

color of your choice. Let the box dry completely before continuing to the next step.

2) Cover the upper inner walls of the box with a patterned duct tape of your choice. (This

will vary based on the height of your box; you can also cover all of the inside with tape.)

3) Cover the entire top of the box with the duct tape as well. (You can use this for bracelets,

watches, etc. Or, you can use this as the base of your jewelry box.)

4) Lay out your fabric and use the box top to mark the width of the strips needed on the

fabric; leave a half inch space on each end.

5) Cut 12 inch long strips of your fabric out. (The number of strips will vary on the length of

your box.)

6) Roll strips of fabric like sushi rolls until there is no more fabric to roll and you are left

with a cylinder shape of the fabric pieces.

7) (Optional) If your box is taller than 2 inches, you can fill the bottom with the excess

fabric and/or paper so that your jewelry is closer to the top of the box once on display.

8) Cut off excess fabric so that the cylinders snuggly fit the width of the box and place each

cylinder of fabric next to each other until you have filled the length of the box. The end

piece of the fabric should be face down so that they cylinders do not unravel.

9) Arrange rings and stud earrings in the space between the cylinders, and you’re done!

The box I used was one I had laying around at home, so any box will do. The fabric I used was

an old pair of cobalt blue denim pants. The puffy paint, brush, and leopard print duct tape I used

for my jewelry box together were under $5.
