Although most of the small wooden boxes I picked up for Viking-inspired bling boxes were reasonably sized, I also picked up two very small boxes from the dollar store. Each are only about 14cm x 8cm x 8cm approximately. They won’t hold very much; a beaded necklace, a small brooch, and a pendant perhaps… or my nålbinding needles and lucet fork perhaps. I may also use it for beads that I haven’t strung up yet – though since I have new glass beads to identify, this box may now be too small!

I put one of the Ouroboros / Jörmungandr dragon/serpent designs that I didn’t end up using on one of the larger boxes… however since the design is much, much, much larger than the box I was using, I decided to wrap it around the top, front, and bottom of the box. It’s kind of cute – and it works around the clasp really well!

After staining the inside and the outside with one coat of Tudor coloured wood stain, I finished the box with two coats of clear satin varnish. The satin finish means that it isn’t shiny at all.

One of the wood burned boxes I recently completed. This one is much smaller than all the others, but it should still be useful for holding small things like beads, coins, nålbinding needles and lucet forks. It is shown here with one of my Viking costume necklaces, a needle holder, a pendant, and a pottery mug. It was really windy while I was filming… So windy that it blew the candles out! . 🛍🎨🖼🎨🛍 #vikingsofinstagram #vikingreenactment #vikingage #vikings #vikingwoman #historicalCostuming #costumer #costumeBlogger #cosplay #vikingcostume #cosplayBlogger #maker #makerLife #vikingBling #norse #norsereenactment #pyrography #woodburning #costumersofinstagram #reenactorsofinstagram #reenactment #reenactorlife #justvikingthings #video #videoclip
