The Ring Holder 1

I recently got engaged and I have a new ring I have to take care of. I’ve already misplaced it a couple time, and all those times nearly gave me a heart attack. I decided to go to stores and purchase a couple ring holders. (Ring holders are these things below; they come in many different shapes, colors and sizes.)


However, the ones I saw in my price range were not pretty at all, and I did not want to spend any money on an unattractive trinket for my rings.

I was wondering what I should do because the pretty ring holders were over my budget.

And lo and behold, I had an idea. What if I make one? I researched online and found that a lot of people used clay. So I went and ordered Sculpey Clay on Amazon for $7.


A piece of advice, make sure you cover your work surface with something. I tried rolling the clay onto a black coffee table and it left white residue on the table. I found an old clean piece of cardboard and worked on top of that.

I started off by cutting pieces of clay and rolling them out into a ball.

I then flattened them out in an even layer to make the base. Make sure it’s thick enough. Mine was about a centimeter thick.


Next, I rolled out a long strip to make the sides.

I then smoothed it out as much as I could to make a dish/bowl.20141109_142317

Next, I took another piece of clay and formed the “holder” part of the ring holder. I then attached it to the bowl.

Finally, I baked it in the oven according to the clay’s direction.

My fiancé made this one.. He said it was the Tree of Gondor. (From Lord of the Rings)

These are the three I baked and I have to say, they came out pretty well.

I could have kept them plain, but I decided to paint them.



Try these out, they were cheap and pretty!
