This is a fun project for my jewelry loving DIYers. This project is super nice with how versatile you can create these ring holders.
All it takes is a few simple items, most of which you can find in your own home. The best part about this project is that you can really make it in just about any item you can set a toilet paper roll, or pieces of them, in. You can use a box, an open foot shoe, or even a small bin. I used the lid of a shoe box for this. Depending on the size, you can even add compartments, like I did here.
- A box, bin or shoe of your choice
- Toilet paper rolls
- A piece of material longer than your box
- A hot glue gun
- Sharp scissors
- Scrap cardboard (optional)
- Wrapping paper (optional, depending on your preference and box choice)
Step 1: Prepping your Materials
First, you will need to decide how to fit your toilet paper rolls in your box. With mine, I pushed all of them to one side so I could add compartments to the side. Next, you need to cut your material to a size you can wrap over and between each of the cardboard rolls. I suggest cutting about 6 inches more material than the length of your box.
Step 2: Gluing the Cardboard Rolls to the Box
Using a hot glue gun, carefully run a line of hot glue down the length of your cardboard tubes, and attach them to your box. You will do this with all of them, placing them side by side in the box.
Step 3: Covering the Rolls with Material
This step can be a little complicated. You need to tuck one end of the material between the edge of the box and a carboard roll. Dab a bit of hot glue between the material and the box to hold it in place. Using a toothpick, stuff a bit of material between each roll. You may need to hold the material over every roll to keep from untucking them. When you reach the end, dab another bit of hot glue to hold the other end in place. Tuck the sides of the material into the sides of the box along the outsides of the cardboard rolls.
Now if you have a box where your toilet paper rolls fit fairly snug, this would be your final step. But if, like me, you have space, you can continue on from here.
Step 4: Creating your Bonus Compartments
Take a spare bit of cardboard, I used the side of the shoe box, and fit it down along the side of the cardboard tubes. I tucked one side of the material under this piece of cardboard and hot glued it down to cover the bottom of the box. Hot glue the cardboard strip in place.
Now this next portion of this step is optional, but if you wish to create smaller spaces, continue on. I took small pieces of cardboard and fitted them between the outside of the box and the piece of cardboard I fitted, and hot glued them in place.
Now you have a DIY Ring Holder!
