practical magic blog party

Ok, so in honour of the Practical Magic movie and blog party (because the movie is totally one of my guilty pleasures), I made an inspirational mini jewellery box.

The box is an upcycled box that I found at a Value Village and whitewashed, sanded, whitewashed again…

It was fun and I’m looking forward to hiding some of my magical pieces away in my new special magical jewellery box!

  4. What a beautiful box -- If ever I had witchy visitors, I would line it with silk and set it out as a candy tray. Once the visitors left, the jewelry would go back in.
