DIY ring dish
Ring holders are often made from clay and tend to look homemade, unless you’re a professional potter.
We’ll show you how to make a ring dish by disguising a store-bought dipping bowl and a simple wooden dowel with metallic spray paint—a touch of gold is just what your jewelry deserves!
Using industrial-strength glue ensures the dowel will stay firmly in place. It does need a few hours to dry so grab a book or head to the gym while you’re waiting.
