Rings are a lot of people’s most wore pieces of jewellery but but its really easy for them to go missing.
This is because we are constantly taking them on and off to have a shower, wash the dishes, workout and go to sleep, and most of the time we just leave them lying around!
Making a ring holder at home is the perfect fun DIY project to solve this problem.
I love making ring organizers because they are quick and inexpensive to make but also look super stylish and can double as home decor!
Here are 7 stylish DIY ring storage, display and organization ideas.
DIY Ring Display Cones
A ring cone is a simple but stylish way to organize and display your rings. It is simply a free standing cone shaped object that you can put on a vanity, bed side table or shelf that holds your rings.
Ring cones are also perfect for leaving in the bathroom or by the kitchen sink, anywhere you usually take off your rings, they will hold you rings and keep them safe until you are ready to put them on again!
Ring cones can be made out of many different materials like clay, cement, resin or even wood. Depending on what aesthetic you are trying to achieve you can made them as colorful or as minimalistic as you want.
The best thing about ring cones is that they are super easy and inexpensive to DIY but they can turn out looking really professional and expensive without too much effort.
