A DIY ring bearer box is the perfect addition to your DIY wedding. This rustic version worked perfectly at the rustic barn wedding we had a few weeks ago. I thought I would share here how to make this great box that also doubles as a memento for the couple after the wedding. This one was first posted over at Crafts Unleashed where I am a paid design team member but I thought I would post it here in case y’all missed it.
I have a ton of DIY wedding ideas on my site. After planning my daughter’s rustic barn wedding, I had plenty of DIY tips to share with brides!
Getting crafty with your wedding decor will save you a ton of money. Plus, you can add your own special touch and have a wedding that is completely and uniquely your own!
This ring bearer box is the perfect addition to your DIY wedding. With the wood-burned stain, you can add your names, the date, or another message on the box for the ring bearer to carry in style!

Supplies needed to make your own DIY ring bearer box:

Start by freehanding a design on the top of the wood box with a pencil. Choose a design that will work well with the wedding theme.
Use the wood-burning tool to burn the design into the wood. The tool is just like using a pencil — it is just HOT! Be careful, go slow, and you will be left with an amazing design in your wood.
Cover the entire box (inside and out) with a stain. Wipe to remove the excess. Allow the entire thing to dry completely. I also added a small piece of fabric to the inside to protect the rings. I used hot glue to secure it.
