All the new rings I’ve been making over here are really starting to add up. I think it’s about time I created a DIY ring holder to store them all. There’s the Stacking Wire Rings from last week, the Agate Statement Ring tutorial, and finally the Classic Crystal Ring I can’t seem to stop making over and over again.
So why not make a DIY ring holder to display them? Today’s tutorial is quick and easy, and even involves creating some clay the kids will absolutely love!

How To Make A Clay DIY Ring Holder
Start out by making this easy clay recipe. It’s made from cornstarch and baking soda so feels incredible in your hands and very similar to Crayola Model Magic clay. The reason I love this clay recipe for this project is because it’s not as messy as other clays I’ve used and it hardens completely when you just set it out overnight.
Make the clay recipe and then mold 3 pillars from it and let harden overnight. Mine are about 5″ to 2″ tall.
Once the clay is hardened, it’s time to paint. To create the ombre look that gives this DIY ring holder it’s charm, we’ll be using a basic Black Acrylic Paint and water to dilute it. Start out by painting just the tip of the clay cone with black paint.
Then, swirl your paintbrush in a dish of water and immediately paint the middle section of your cone. Don’t wipe off the excess paint or water. This creates the gray shaded look in the middle of the cone. Swirl your brush again to remove a little more of the black paint and repeat on the lower portion. The slowly diluted paint will give your cones a more interesting look.
Now that your cones are painted, it’s time to adhere them to your wooden disc. Use E6000 Glue in a well ventilated area for a strong bond. I love this glue! It’s one of the supplies I use most in the studio.
Once the glue is dried your DIY ring holder is ready to use! Stack some rings on there… or make some more with the space you just created. 😉
I really hope you liked this project! It’s kinda fun to step away from my sewing machine every once in awhile to create something a little different. This ring holder is unique and adds a level of whimsy to my dresser that I really love. It also compliments the Bracelet Display I made awhile ago from an old shoe box.
