| WHAT YOU NEED |
Perspex Sheet / Gold Glitter / Scissors / Sandpaper / Plaster of Paris / Sellotape
| HOW TO MAKE IT |
I created my own moulds from a plastic sheet. It's easy to make and allows you to fully customise your ring holders.
Use the template below to cut your moulds - you can use this to create a cone ring holder or, as I did, pyramids. Cut your plastic sheet [O.H.P paper to you and me and anyone around and above the age of 30!] to provide a sturdy and water tight mould:
To create pyramids from the template, once cut and taped at the seam, simply fold the cone down the seam and opposite side and then do the same in the opposite direction [the video on my YouTube channel will help if my explanation doesn't!]
To hold the moulds in place, I used some spare foam from this Gift Box DIY as a stand.
Following the instructions, I made my plaster mix [more detail in this gemstone photo holder DIY and video] and then separated in to two cups.
I then added glitter to one of the cups [I know, shocking] as an experiment [FYI - I also tried a marble effect with paint - this doesn't work!] and to add a bit of sparkle to the finished holder:
Ring holders make great gifts as well, so there's plenty of time to give this a go and wrap in time for Christmas [why not display in this stylish DIY?].
