On the occasion where I need to take off my rings, I recently discovered I had no where safe to keep them! And with the Covid-19 store closures, I could not go out and look for anything either! Plus, who wants to spend money when you don’t have to?? So, I rummaged through all of my craft supplies and came up with this SUPER simple, SUPER cute ring holder DIY!
I don’t know about you, but this time spent at home has really helped bring out my creativity and innovation! Being a healthcare worker on the front line dealing with all this Covid-19 craziness, I wash my hands A LOT. Like a lot, a lot! And I have been noticing that the skin underneath my rings have started to peel, from them being constantly submerged in water. Yuck! Not only has my skin been suffering from the extra washing, it is also suggested that bacteria and germs can live underneath your jewelry (especially rings) even when you are washing regularly. Extra yuck!
So, I decided for myself, that until the pandemic starts to subside, I will no longer be wearing any of my rings. That way I can give my hands time to heal, and still be able to wash them as much as I need.
The bad thing about this is the fact that I had no where to put my rings! I want them to be safe and always in my sight (especially my wedding ring) but I had no where to put them. That’s when I came up with the idea of creating these DIY ring holders!
DIY Ring Holder
– Oven Bake Polymer Clay
– Acrylic Paint
– Acrylic Sealer
1.) Take a small portion of your clay, knead and roll it out into a finger-size cone.
2.) Once your cone is shaped, cut a straight edge out of the clay with your blade on the bottom of the cone, so that it sits flat when upright.
3.) Bake the cone(s) by following directions on polymer clay package. (I used Sculpey polymer clay, and it had me bake the clay at 275 degrees for 10 minutes)
4.) Allow clay to cool completely.
5.) Now it’s time to paint any design you would like on the cone(s). Allow paint to dry fully.
6.) Paint a coat of acrylic sealer over the entire cone(s). This will help the cone be a bit more durable and will give it a ceramic looking shine. Allow to dry completely and then enjoy!
These ring holders are perfect for all of you out there, just like me, that have been excessively washing your hands! But they are also soooo handy for artists, musicians, and pretty much anyone that uses their hands a lot and doesn’t like their rings to get in the way. Or maybe you just own a lot of different rings? No matter what your reason is, this DIY is SUPER simple and extra helpful to hold all your favorite rings!
