Are your rings often in a heap on your dresser? Even in plates and bowls, rings tend to get messy.
I have no idea how I’ve put up with digging out my rings or even forgetting about some at the bottom of the heap:
Unfortunately, a lot of the ring holders I see in stores are somewhat old-school. I wanted something simple with a clean look. I also wanted to wall mount this to free up space on my dresser.
And so I made my own using a spare small box and some cheap melamine foam that you can get at the two-dollar store. (For those in Singapore, I got it at Daiso!)
Sharing how I made this ring holder box here so you can make one of your own. Cheap and fast – who wouldn’t like it! :)
Find a box of an appropriate size (I used the lid of a small box so that it wouldn’t be too deep for my rings). The foam I used came in bars so you can cut them to size.
Cut the foam to the width of the box. I don’t love measuring so I stuffed one end in and marked the sides sticking out with a pencil. After that, just join the line with a ruler and cut. I’d recommend a pen knife with a ruler for a cleaner cut compared to scissors.
Depending on the foam that you got and the height of your rings, you’ll probably want to cut the remaining pieces into half again length-wise. Then, stuff all the foam back in the box! You can glue the foam down if you like but mine was snug enough to stay in. If you slot in thicker rings, that’ll also help to hold the foam in.
I probably put in more photos than necessary, but you get the idea :)
And there you have it! And here comes the best part – mounting it on a wall to save precious space on the dresser!
Have a good weekend everyone and cheers to neater dressers! :)
