The CUTEST little ring dish you ever did see...right!! And it's so easy. Here are the materials you need...
- [easyazon_link identifier="B001IY82FM" locale="US"]super glue[/easyazon_link]
- [easyazon_link identifier="B00KZ6LW06" locale="US"]paint[/easyazon_link] (spray paint keeps this easy!)
Let's talk about these materials for a bit. There is no right or wrong to what you choose. You want to find a knickknack that fits nicely with the dish and stands up a bit. It can be a cow, a bell, a tree...or a man :). As long as it's fairly skinny, and not too wide that it covers your dish. If you can find a deer with antlers...how cool would that be (rings could go on the antlers!)! And, if your figurines don't match that doesn't matter ...because you will be painting it anyways!
Glueing is just that...glueing. Nothing fancy about this. I would recommend that you just watch that you don't glob so much glue on that it seeps out from under the figurine and creates a yucky edge. Hold it firmly for a minute or so and then let dry.
After your dish is dry...take the paint to it!! More coats with less coverage are better than heavy coverage with fewer coats. Truly! Let dry in between coats!
The gold paint I used is awesome because it dries very quickly in between coats (remember, thinner coats!) allowing me to reapply quickly after!
Use a large box to paint your dish. Set a fan nearby to keep the fumes from being crazy bad. Or, if it's nice outside where you are...take it outside.
That's truly it! It is so easy to make this sweet dish.
I think this is a wonderful gift idea! You can customize it however you like, exactly the way you know the recipient would like it! DIY ring dish= happy Christmas gift giving!
