A happy marriage of rubber chair tips from the hardware store:
And some mismatched drawer knobs from my collection of Stuff I Couldn't Bring Myself To Throw Away.
I bet you have a random drawer knob someplace. (It's probably in a random drawer.) Wanna make a ring holder? Here's the DIY.
Make a loop on the end of some craft wire, 22 gauge or thicker. (Anything thinner is too floppy.)
Bend the loop at a 90 degree angle to create a faux headpin.
Poke a hole in a rubber chair tip and thread your faux headpin through the hole. Add some beads. Trim the extra wire to about 3/4 inch.
Finish with a swirly (a plain loop works, too).
Now just pop the bead-embellished chair tip onto a flat-bottomed drawer knob. Like so:
VOILA! Ring holder!
Here's a cool variation to the basic look. Use the screw that came with the knob, plus a stack of rubber washers (or even a big bead) to add some height.
Now watch what happens when you add the top part:
It's got a pedestal! Isn't that cute? I like these pedestal ones a lot.
But really, the low profile ones are just as purty.
The metal or glass knobs add lots of weight to the base, making them sturdy enough to hold a whole stack of pretties! Or your biggest crazy cocktail rings...
These would make a great gift for someone who wears lots of rings. I've already given myself four: one for the bedside table, and one to put beside each sink in the house.
Thanks for checking out today's upcycle! Hope some of you get inspired to try it. See ya next time!
