I was looking at unicorn jewelry boxes as a Christmas present for Zora. They were all basically the same and plastic. So I remembered that I had gotten an older jewelry box on one of my Vintage Lindy Lou shopping trips that I was at some point going to upcycle. It is wood with a paper covering glued on.also a couple weird snaps that at one time attached something. After finally prying those off I gave it about 3 coats of gesso. I sponged different colors on for a background. I drew out designs on paper, then traced them onto the box.I added glitter, gold paint and jewels at the end. I painted Zora's name and them covered with glitter and Mod Podge. It was fun to make with all the glitter and shiny stuff!

All ready to go!
