Good morning! Are you enjoying a 3 day weekend or are you working today? We have President’s Day today to celebrate President Washington and Lincoln’s birthday. I even talk about it with my preschoolers. They actually have a pretty good memory for it all. It’s always great to see what they actually retain.
I received this jewelry box from my mom. It had been hers. I have had it for quite a while and finally decided what I was going to do with it. It always takes me the longest time to decide. There are just too many choices! But as I was going through my jewelry, I realized I had quite a few costume jewelry rings. I had them all in a small bowl, but it was hard to see what I had, so I decided to make this box a ring holder.
I started by cutting dowels the length of the top and bottom shelf. The fabric I used is white flannel, but I think a vintage material would look really nice. I just didn’t have any on hand when I started this project.
I cut strips of flannel long and wide enough to roll the dowel up in.
I folded in the ends and then rolled the dowel up in the flannel.
I didn’t glue mine, but you certainly could. Mine ended up having a tight enough fit that I didn’t need any glue to keep them in place.
Once your pieces are rolled up, place them in your box.
I used the edge of a scissor to tuck the edges in.
For the bottom, I wanted a small shelf to lay some of my brooches on. I found that a butter box was the perfect fit! I ran some glue on it and covered it with the same white flannel.
I place the butter box in the back and then added 3 more rolls in the front.
Now it was time to add the bling!
I love being able to see all my rings at the same time and not have to dig through a bowl to find the one I want.
I don’t wear brooches very often, but these are some of my favorites.
I’m glad I got this project done. One more thing accomplished and a little more organized! We are still plugging along on the house updates. We have flooring in the main bathroom now and I painted the inside of the front door this weekend. I will be sharing soon!
