Illuminated Jewellery Boxes

Some jewelry boxes are nicely illuminated. A small LED light will work great here. It should turn on when opening the box.

How to decorate wooden boxes?
A natural wooden box is basically a blank canvas for your creative ideas. Whether you paint, sketch, or collect shells and amber on the beach, you can express your style by decorating a box.
Plain wooden boxes are available at online stores. Look for models that are not coated with varnish or sealant so that the artwork will adhere better. Sanding may be required to smooth out rough spots and splinters before proceeding.
Acrylic paints adhere well to wood and dry quickly. They are water-based, so they do not irritate with an unpleasant odor. First draw a design on the box with a pencil or crayon, then paint it with acrylic. Sprinkle glitter on the wet paint to give it a bit of sparkle.
Use glow-in-the-dark paints. You can cover elements like stars or the moon with them. This effect looks amazing. Also try craft paints for fluffy fabrics. They will add a special depth. You can use them to draw outlines or patterns such as flowers, leaves or swirls. Protect your project after the paint has dried by spraying a clear sealer.
Using this technique, you can decorate a box with any motif. A floral or folk pattern looks beautiful here. If you like, glue fragments of a vintage map or random pages from tattered old books onto the boxes. Dip each piece of paper into a decoupage medium, then smooth it onto the box. Leave the lid open and wait for it to dry. To give the box a crisp finish, glue pieces of colored tissue paper on the box.
