DIY Ring Bearer Box

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.

  • Mini Unfinished Wood Box
  • Wood Burning Tool
  • Pencil
  • Wood Stain
  • Rag

What You Will Need


  • Start by free handing a design on the top of the wood box with a pencil. Choose a design that will work well with the wedding.
  • Use the wood burning tool to burn the design into the wood. Be careful, go slow, and you will be left with an amazing design in your wood.
  • Apply a thin coat of stain over the entire box (inside and out). Wipe away excess. Allow the entire thing to dry completely. If desired, add a small piece of fabric to the inside to protect the rings. Use hot glue to secure it.
