Items Needed

Super Glue

Knob or something to act as a handle



1. Cut the post cap

DIY Jewelry Box Fence Post

Cut your fence post cap and give it a coat of paint or stain. When you cut the post cap try and leave more room on one side so the box will end up deeper for jewelry to rest in it. For painting you can use spray paint or traditional brush-on paint.


2. Attach the knob with glue

Attach the knob or item that will act as the knob to the to the top of the box using super glue or other adhesive. You can use a marble, sea shell, stone, or just use a traditional knob.


3. Fill it up!

Now you fill it with whatever you desire! You could use it for jewelry or even use for spare change, candies, car keys, even for little pieces of decorative soap. The possibilities are endless!

Note: This is optional but you can line the inside with material or give it another color of paint inside. You could also leave the inside unpainted and just give it a quick coat of stain inside to give it that extra slight difference. I’ve also seen where people have used color coordination. For example, making the outside navy blue but the inside white.
