My lovely friend Ali (doesn't she have a great name??) asked me to make her a ring holder. She had them all on a rod/stick/pole thing (technical terms) and she hated having to take off all the rings if she wanted one at the bottom. So after her explaining the gist of what she wanted, here is what I came up with:
Isn't it fantastic? I was pretty sad to give it to her.
(I have enough stuff to make me one too so don't feel to bad for me)
Read More and Ill tell you how I made it!!
First grab some foam or a chair cushion.
If you are trying to go "on hand" you could also use pillow stuffing.
Then pick out some cute coordinating fabrics.
And get a cigar box. If you go into any smoke shop they usually have tons of boxes. If you bat your eyelashes and ask real nicely they may give them to you. The one I went to didn't think I was pretty apparently and made me pay $2 per box. Still a pretty good deal tho.
You could also make your own box from a cereal box and tape and mod podge or any other boxy thing with low sides.
Now that you have your "boxy thing" cut out a square of foam that will fit. I used a box cutter for this.
Now slice up the square into rectangles. Try to be straight but they will be covered so don't freak out if they are a little jagged. Mine are about an inch but you can make them bigger or smaller depending on how many rows you want.
Now cut a piece of fabric to fit and hot glue it around the foam.
*If you are using batting you will want to sew a "tube" and stuff it with the batting
Glue up the ends
Squeeze some glue in the box and place your roll as close to the front as possible.
Keep going until you end up with this:
Now place all of your fancy rings in the box
Where do you store your rings? Everyone is always looking for great ways to organize their jewelry!
