Ring bearer’s wooden box

My daughter pinned this box for the rings and I thought it looked simple enough.  The original one is here.

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a little wooden box.  It was surprisingly cheap!  Under $3.

I gathered the few supplies I needed:

Wooden box

Stain

foam brush

white paint & brush  (I substituted finger nail polish)

cloth for rings (haven’t decided on this yet)

varnish

This is a 2 sided box–one side for the groom’s ring & one for the bride. 🙂

With the varnish on it, it started to look really pretty.  The little brass clasp is a nice touch.

I love the old time look of the heart with the initials inside.

This worked great!

I still need to put cloth in both sides of the box for the rings to rest in, but haven’t decided if I want to go with their wedding colors or with a white velvet look.
