In this blog I will be showing you how to make DIY ring holders. I always get in the crafting mood during the colder weather and decided I would make some cool ring holders and share the craft with you!
These DIY ring holder are so much fun to make for your personal collection of rings. Or if you are like me and need to find creative ways to display your rings. This was the first time I did these and I must say I love the way the ring holders turned out they look really organic and minimal.
What you will need
- toilet paper rolls
- 2 containers 1 for the mixture and the other to old molds while mix is setting
- something to stir with (In my case an old butter knife)
- dry mix plaster
- rings for sizing
- paring knife
- paint, sharpies, anything you want to use to decorate your ring holder
- paint brush
This DIY ring holders craft is so great because most of the materials can be found at home and are really in expensive.
Once you have gathered up all your materials you are ready to get started!
Start by taking the toilet paper rolls and cutting them once length wise.
Roll the now cut toilet paper roll into a cone check shape with ring to make sure the sizing is right.
when you have the right size tape the cone shut making sure you close the hole at the bottom.
Make as many of the cone molds as you desire I decided to make three.
Once the molds are made place them into a container so they are standing up right. This way they are ready when you pour the mixture into the molds.
Now that the molds are ready it’s time to make the plaster. the mixture I got said to mix 2 parts plaster and 1 part water. Once you have the right consistency it’s a good idea to tap the container to bring the bubbles out of the mix. although I still ended up with some bubble.
time to pour the plaster it into the molds. This part is kinda messy.
Leave the molds for a minimum of 45 mins before taking them out. when I took them out they looked rough as you can see in the photo below. I took a paring knife and shaved away access plaster.
Love the texture I created also each holder has its own unique look as you can see below.
sand the bottom so it was flat this way they are more sturdy.
After I finished this step I left the ring holders for a couple hours to make sure they where properly set.
its time to paint! I painted my ring holders black but you can really choose any colour and design them what ever way you want.
I painted a few coats of the black paint onto the ring holders after that I highlighted the texture with a black sharpie and lined the bottom with a silver sharpie. I am super happy with the end results as you can see below.
