This “Two Girls, One Thrift Store” post is part of my monthly collaboration with Erica of The Truth Tea. On the last Thursday of each month, we team up to share thrifted outfit ideas, tips & tricks, and our favorite places to thrift in Seattle– check out our last post. This month we’re excited to have partnered with Seattle Goodwill for today’s #TwoGirlsOneThriftStore post!
In celebration of Earth Day, which just passed a few days ago, I decided to get back in my DIY groove. I had been out of it since moving back into an apartment because in all honesty I just don’t have the space I used to for crafting. But I love to craft and DIY projects are my jam, so I made a trip to my local Seattle Goodwill store to see what creative ideas I could come up with. Goodwill takes several initiatives to make the world a better place. For example, by reselling items, they are helping to help clothing nd goods out of landfills, while also helping to stimulate local economies. While visiting the Goodwill Seattle flagship store something that caught my attention was a ceramic hand statue that found above a clothing rack. The first thing that went through my mind was, “wow, that wouls be a cute ring holder.” And that my friends is how my DIY ring holder idea was born!
This was definitely one of the easiest DIY projects I’ve ever worked on and it actually helped me sold a problem– my dresser with rings lying all over the place. Curious to know how you can upcycle a statue to make your own ring holder? Keep on scrollin’!
DIY Ring Holder
DIY Ring Holder Materials
- Thrifted statue that has limbs in which you can hang things on (this hand from Seattle Goodwill was the perfect find for this project!)
- Spray paint (Pick your favorite color!)
- Drop cloth/ or old newspaper to protect your workspace.
DIY Ring Holder Tutorial
- Once you’ve picked out the statue that you would like to use as a ring holder, figure out how you would like to give it a personalized touch.
- Now it’s time to paint your statue. You can pick and color or finish that you would like. I personally love rose gold (even before it became trendy), so I picked up a can of rose gold spray paint and went to town. Before painting, make sure to put down a drop cloth or cover your workspace with old newspaper.
- Allow the paint to dry before moving to the next step.
- To really jazz up your ring holder, consider adding finishing touches such as adding a lace trim or bedazzle it with gems. I decided to keep mine simple, but I may go back and polish the nails in a fun color.
Now that you’ve checked on my upcycled project, make sure to check out the cool DIY spice rack that Erica of The Truth Tea created. It’s super cute and functional!
