Did you see it?! Have you read it? Are you as excited as me?

The answer to all these questions is probably “no” and you’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about, right?! Well, if you turn to page 70 of the April issue of HGTV magazine, you’ll see exactly what all the hubbub is about. I’m featured along with this project from the archives. It’s one of my favorite DIYs and I’m pretty pumped that the HGTV peeps loved it too. I’m bringing back the wooden bracelet crafts today with the perfect project to bring some much needed springtime colors to your desktop.

These fruity wooden bracelet trinket boxes are very similar to these trinket boxes. The technique is the same, just a few tweaks to the colors and embellishments. Let me show you how it’s done.
