But the real showstopper is that insanely gorgeous peony on top! I’m still in disbelief that it’s not real. Can you believe it?! They’re getting so good at faux florals these days! I had picked up these pretty watercolor acrylic paints that I wanted to try and was looking for some ribbon or something for the top of the trinket box when I wandered past this flower and literally stopped in my tracks. And then Baby V insisted on holding it the entire rest of the time we were in the craft store. Clearly she has mama’s good taste! Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box!  | littleredwindow.com

Here’s how I made it:

DIY Flower Top Trinket Box

Faux peony flower

Unpainted wood trinket box

Watercolor acrylic gel paints (these were brand new at my craft store from Martha Stewart.)

1 inch “wash” paintbrush 

Hot Glue Gun 

1 . This paint blended so much more easily than regular acrylic paint (it’s also not completely opaque so be aware of that). I started at the bottom of the box with a bright pink and blended it up toward white at the top. I used a wide “wash” style brush which is wide and flat, and a tiny dab of water when necessary. This paint also dried a little slower than regular acrylic paint which helps with blending too! Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box! | littleredwindow.com Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box! | littleredwindow.com Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box! | littleredwindow.com

2. I painted the lid with mostly the white watercolor paint. Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box! | littleredwindow.com

3. When the box was dry, I pulled my peony flower head off the stem (mine just popped off) and hot glued it to the top of the box! Pretty DIY Flower Top Trinket Box, keep your special things in this gorgeous ombré box! | littleredwindow.com
