DIY: ring organizer

An after effect of blogging for me is being a bit more organized, believe it or not. My 6-Month challenge has definitely gotten me to cull my closet down to a manageable and practical size, but I can't say it's done that for my accessories stash. The last few days, I've been plotting ways on how to artfully display my accessories because I tend to wear them more if I can see them. Today, I'm sharing with with you an easy DIY on how to make an easy peasy ring organizer!

STEP 1: Clean your base. Paint to add pizzazz. Get some pizzas too. This is gonna take a while.

STEP 2: Cut your thick cloth into strips to fit the width of your base. The length of the strips depends on how thick your cloth is and how tightly you roll it. Once you've cut strips of thick cloth, roll them tightly into cylinders and glue the ends with a glue gun.

STEP 3: Keep on rolling strips of thick cloth until you've filled your box. Make sure to tightly pack them  into the box. Eat some pizza in between rolling.

STEP 4: Cut as many strips of velvet as you have rolls. The velvet strips don't have to be as long as
the thick cloth. They just need to wrap around each roll. Wrap each strip of velvet on each roll, glue the ends, then glue the bottom of the roll (with the seams) to the bottom of the box. Space the rolls
tightly next to each other. You want the spaces to be a little tight, so your rings down fall into them.

STEP 5: Marvel at your greatness. You just made a ring organizer. 

How do you store your rings?

  11. Great DIY! I would do it, if I had a ring collection, which I don't mostly because of the fact that my hands are too large *womp womp*

  25. I store my rings in a jumble of a drawer in my jewellery box. This is way cuter and more organized. Is it wrong I'm so horribly lazy that it seems like getting these supplies might be way too much work for me? lol. Sorry, it's been a long week. But it is indeed, a very clever, industrious, and pretty idea.

  26. Cute and simple! Any tips for storing necklaces? I've really been having tangle troubles lately.

  50. Good idea, Laura! I generally just keep my rings in/on a teacup and saucer that sits atop my bureau.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow! Amazing.

    I don't have many, so I simply store my rings in my jewelry box, which has enough space for all of them.
