Jewellery Boxes are a fun project to make for yourself or to give away as a gift.
A Mosaic Jewellery Box creates a beautiful accessory or gift for someone special. Make your own with these step by step instructions!
A selection of materials
Paintbrush or palette knife for applying adhesive
Mixing bowls, sponge, water for grouting
Note: the number of tiles you require will depend upon the size of your jewellery box. Instructions Note: The pattern will need to be modified depending upon the size of your jewellery box.
Gather jewellery box & materials
If you have purchased a wooden jewellery box you will need to seal it. Weldbond adhesive can be used as a sealer, just mix it in a ratio of 1 part Weldbond to 5 parts water. Apply to surface with a paintbrush and allow to dry completely.
Applying the tiles - Weldbond adhesive is a suitable adhesive for this project as it won't be exposed to any moisture.
Allow the adhesive to fully cure for 24 hours before grouting. I've used a brown grout mixed with a grout additive. Apply the grout, remove the excess, buff the grout haze away once the grout has started to dry.
