As far as resolutions go, I’m always a big fan of starting the year organized.
I tend to begin cleaning closets and purging junk in January since I’m stuck inside anyhow. And as I was going through my jewelry, I decided it was time to find a better way to store my rings.
This DIY raised ring holder is pretty enough to display in plain sight. (A perfect complement to my other DIY wine bottle jewelry holder.) And this is the perfect way to ensure I don’t lose my rings when I take them off at night.
I realized that the bottom of the Protea bottle would be the perfect spot for a few rings. It’s like it was made for this.
So, I had to cut the bottle first.
I use the same steps outlined here. The process takes a little practice, but is pretty fun!
Once my bottle was cut, it was simply a matter of finding a base for my ring holder. I used a square piece of wood that I had already. I just glued it to the cut side of the bottle.
The wood base makes the piece look much more substantial. Because functional organizing solutions can be pretty, too.
