So what is this dazzling craft of diamond painting? It sounds strange if you've never heard of it before, but the act of diamond painting is quite simple. It's like painting by number, but with diamonds and your imagination! You adhere 13 faceted gems to a sticky pre-designed canvas, and voila! You have a beautiful and unique creation that has super versatile display options. Here is a diamond painting close up, featuring our Diamond Art Deer and Rainbow.

We think that Sparkle Art goes beyond just wall art, and can be made into everyday items like handbags, phone cases, or in this post, an adorable box, perfect for storing jewelry, ribbon, treasures, pens, and more! The instructions are easy-to-follow and calls for a cute ribbon and adhesive glue to make this beautiful box.
Read on for a tutorial on how to use some DIY magic to make a dazzling and fancy box. This is a tutorial that works with almost every kit design we've created, but in this case, we decided to go colorful using our Diamond Art Deer and Rainbow Kit.
- Diamond Art Deer and Rainbow Kit
- Paint, white or your favorite color!
- Paint brushes

- OPTIONAL - Extra Accessories (stickers, extra gems, etc.)
Get Started on Your Wooden Box!
1. Make the Diamond Art Deer and Rainbow Kit
Bring out your creativity with a dip, dot, and dazzle! Sparkle Art is meant to be a leisurely craft that lets you put the canvas away for the moment or come back to it later in time if you wanted to. Complete it in one day, or within hours, the choice is up to you, just let your imagination run wild!
2. Craft Your Wooden Box
Paint your wooden box white or your favorite color to give your project a hint of your personality. You can be as creative as you want with your brush and strokes. Paint and then let sit for an hour to let the paint dry! Then after the box is dry, adorn the box with your favorite ribbon. We used a ribbon around the box bottom and the lid. But feel feel to use one or both ribbons because the world and the box is your oyster. Our favorite is a cute iridescent ribbon that helps the Diamond Art sparkle!
3. Cut Out Your Diamond Art Fabric
After you've glittered your way to success, carefully cut out your design, and get ready to customize! Our fabric frays minimally, so you don't have to worry about mending the edges before placing the design on your wooden box (but you certainly can if you want to). Now, you're finally ready to place your canvas onto your wooden box, using your adhesive of choice and a steady hand. Make sure to lay out the design flat, and smooth the canvas out for air bubbles once placed. Place the Diamond Art Deer and Rainbow on the fabric and apply the adhesive.
4. Accessorize (Or Don't)!
Now that your Sparkle Art design is placed, all that’s left are finishing touches. Make your wooden box is one of a kind by adding extra accessories around the edges, going crazy with color combinations with additional ribbons, or even adding extra stickers here and there. Show the world how creative you can be with your Diamond Art and show off your imagination with the finishing touches. Let your creativity run wild to your heart’s content, and then muah! It's as simple as that and it’s beautiful. This is a great and unique way to utilize your Sparkle Art canvas to the fullest and have a special location for your jewelry or more!
