How to make a ballerina music box

What you will need :

Wooden box
Sandpaper, variety of grit
Wood stain
Paint brushes
Clear spray sealer
Clear gloss spray varnish
Hot glue gun
Hot glue sticks
4 brass corner braces
5/8" Hasp catch
5/8" padlock with key
4 wooden beads
18 note key wind musical movement with magnetic swing arm
Drill and bit
T-bar winding keyBallerina figurine
Acrylic paint

How to make it:

  • 1.Sand the box until you have a smooth surface by using sandpaper. Work your way up in grit size with each subsequent pass.
  • 2.Stain the box in your favorite color and type of stain. Use a paintbrush to get even strokes and to reach places that many might not notice . Don't forget to stain the bottom of the box . Allow to completely dry. While it is , decide on the decorations you are going to place on it .

    • 3.Spray the entire box in sealer. This will seal the stain and provide a finish for your decorating ideas. After the sealer dries, spray a gloss finish coat of varnish. Let this completely dry before proceeding.

    • 4.Center the mirror on the top of the box and affix it with hot glue from the hot glue gun. This will be the stage where the ballerina dances.

    • 5.Affix the four corner braces on each of the four top corners of the box. Attach the hasp catch to the top of the box. This and the lock will allow you to lock the box.

    • 6.Turn the box over and hot glue the four wooden beads to the four corners of the bottom to be legs.

    • 7.Open the top drawer and position the musical movement in the center but along the front edge of the drawer. Place a small mark to designate the key location. Draw around the musical movement to indicate its location.

    • 8.Remove the musical movement and drill a 1/4-inch hole at the marked location. Attach the musical movement in its location with hot glue. Attach the key wind through the hole in the drawer. Wind the key to make sure it works.

    • 9.Attach the small magnet that came with the musical movement to the bottom of the ballerina. As the swing arm on the movement moves so will the ballerina.

    • 10.Paint the recipient's name on the box with the acrylic paint. Draw a few flowers in bright colors around the top of the box and on the sides.

    • 11.Allow the paint to dry completely and then mask off the mirror and hasp. Apply a light coat of sealer to the top of the box to seal the paint in place.

    • 12.Remove the masking paper and place the ballerina on the mirror over the magnet on the swing arm.
      And voila .

    Swan lake By Tchaikovsky

    Romantic tutu


    Things you will need :


    Measuring tape
    Fine silk or nylon tulle
    Sewing machine

    Measure the waist and side length from waist to just below the knee.

    Cut a piece of wide ribbon to the length of the waist measurement, plus 1 1/2 inches. Attach two snaps on each end, the ribbon should fit snugly but not too tightly around the waist.

    Multiply the waist dimension by 3. This is the width of tulle you  need to gather to create sufficient fullness for this tutu

    Cut enough tulle for the length of the waist to below-the-knee measurement to create three full layers.
    Stitch each layer up the center back to within 6 inches of the top edge.

    Run a gathering or basting stitch through all three layers and gather them to fit the ribbon waist band. You can run another basting stitch through the gathered layers to stabilize them before you stitch them to the waistband.

    Top stitch the layers of tulle to the wrong side of the waist band, allowing for a small overlap at the center back closure.
