The Ring Holder 3

Ever since I had the biggest scare when I couldn’t find my ring, I’ve been researching ring holders. I have a couple that I made already but I thought this one would be fun to make.

I have to admit, this is a very pretty ring holder.

You will need:

1. a small plastic animal (make sure there’s a “hook” or something to ensure that your ring will fit or hang correctly)

2. hot glue gun

3. spray paint, color of your choice (I used gold because it’s what I had left over from another DIY project)

4. a piece of wood (my fiancé cut a piece and sanded it down for me)

5. few decorative pieces (I used flowers that I had left over from another DIY project)


First, spray paint the toy animal. I used an elephant so I could use its nose as the hook. Let the toy dry completely.


Next, glue the toy’s feet onto the block of wood.


Then, add your decorative pieces onto the block of wood with the hot glue gun.


Finally, I used some twine I had and glued it all along the bottom of the wood piece.


This is my absolute favorite. I was inspired to make this because of this ring holder/dish from Anthropologie. It’s obviously way too expensive. So I made this elephant piece.

The Ring Holder 2

This is one of the cheapest ring holders you can make.

They may seem too simple, but I think that’s the best part about them.

You can decorate them in any way possible. I left the pieces of wood blank because I honestly did not know how to decorate them. I am still thinking of how to decorate them.

I thought of spray painting, but that’s been done. I used a lot of spray paint in my other DIYs.

I thought of acrylic painting, but it seems too flat and simple.

I then realized that I had some ‘flowers’ left over from another DIY project I did. So I ended up gluing flowers onto the pieces of wood.

All I used were two pieces of cutout pieces of wood I found at Michaels craft store for $.88 and hooks from Home Depot for $2 each package.  I definitely did not need to purchase two different colors but I did anyway in hopes that I will need the rest of the hooks someday.








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!
