DIY Steampunk Ring Holder

UncategorizedSamantha Extance

If you're like me, you don't like to wash the dishes or fix your appliances with your nice rings on. I've seen a ton of really great ring holder DIYS on Pinterest lately & they have inspired me to create this new steampunk DIY. To make one of your own, here's what you'll need: IMG_3315

  • Scissors
  • An awl
  • A pencil
  • Small cup hook (generally you want one with a 1/4" screw)
  • Small picture frame
  • Small piece (or scrap) of scrapbook paper
  • Glue Stick
  • Paper/poster board watch face (mine is upcycled from an old pocketwatch; but you can also print your own from the Graphics Fairy)

IMG_3314Steps:

  1. Open your picture frame and take out the paper & glass. Set glass aside for a future project or as a future replacement. Use the paper to trace the shape you need to fill the frame on your scrapbook paper. IMG_3317
  2. After you've finished tracing your shape, cut it out with your scissors. IMG_3319
  3. Next, glue your scrapbook shape onto the back of your frame. IMG_3320
  4. Then glue your watch face in the middle of your frame onto the scrapbook piece. IMG_3324
  5. Allow your glue to dry completely. (Approximately 5 minutes.) Create a small starter hole using your awl in the center of your watch face. Be sure not to create a large or wide hole because your cup hook screw will fall out. IMG_3325
  6. After you've made your starter hole, begin twisting your cup hook in place.IMG_3327
  7. You've done! Proudly hang your ring on the hook anytime you're rolling up your sleeves & doing dirty work! IMG_3335  IMG_3332 As always, Happy Crafting!
