Jake and The Neverland Pirates Treasure Chest

So my child is addicted to this show... I mean shows go in waves, but like all shows she wants something to go along with it. This time she wanted the treasure chest and gold doubloons. You can't buy this, so I had to make it. Sounds easy right... I mean how hard could it be.

So this is the treasure chest that I needed to make:

So I started by buying a little wooden treasure chest from Michaels and some little coin sized circles. I took the treasure chest and taped off everything that needed to be hand painted red:


Next Laci and I painted the rest of the spots gold, it was after I started this that despite how much fun Laci was having I realized that spray paint on this portion would have been much faster and easier, but then I couldn't have had help from an adorable munchkin. After the paint had dried I took off the blue painters tape.

Although I forgot to take pictures of the red painted part you can see it and get the idea. Then I used my cricut or hand cut the gold vinyl to put on the treasure chest:


Then I painted the "coins" and after they were dry I put a gold vinyl palm tree on them. Jake's have (2) palm trees, but I think I did pretty good getting one on these:

I wish I had painted the inside of the treasure chest gold, and I still might, I just need to pull it back out and do so:

Overall, even though it is a mini version of a real treasure chest, I think we did pretty good, what do you think?

So sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been REALLY busy and although I have a backlog of things I want to share with you... sometimes life gets in the way.



  1. This is a great idea! This would be an excellent addition to my son's birthday party.

  2. This is absolutely funny, I wanted to make a chest for my 3 year old son who is obsessed with Jake, but like you said they don't make them.
    I saw the same little chest at Michael's today. Yours came out awesome by the way. I normally have a full time job and don't have the time to make things for him but I would love to now that I've been off for a couple of week. I don't have a lot of experience with crafting but I have the desire to be. I want to make my son's Jake costume for halloween. Hope all goes well!

  3. OMG!! What a Top Job!! my daughter has seen this and wants it!! you are Awesome tfs x

  4. that's amazing! I love it my daughter wants one for chrsitmas so I'll be making it for her when she's at school without her knowing! Thank you so much
