Faux Amethyst Box

This DIY came about when I saw these decorative boxes from Moss Manila Home that I lusted over for 6-months. I’ve figured to eventually just DIY it since it’s extremely out of my student budget and it’s pretty easy to reinterpret. Plus I still got the same vibe I was going for - mid-century luxe.

Step 1: Step 1: Sanding

Get your wood box of any size and sand the faces down. I used an index card wood box which you can find from any bookstores. After sanding your box, get your desired color of spray paint and paint the outside of the box. Let it dry.

Step 2: Step 2: Rock Formation

Take a small sized rock, a bunch of beads (suggestively in one color of different shades) and your trusty glue gun. Stick the beads to the rock using your glue gun until it's all covered up with beads. Leave one side of the rock uncovered.

Step 3: Step 3: Assembly

Once your box is all dry, take your rock and glue the uncovered part of it on top of the box. It's pretty simple and easy!

Step 4: Voila!

The finished product looks fantastic and it could easily be put anywhere around your house. It’s a great decorative element! Aside from the faux-amethyst-rock, you could also do shells or corals, toys, knobs, etc. there’s no limit to the possibilities. Personalize and be creative as I always say!
