DIY Ring Tree



I was recently given a ton of rings. My mom was with me, and gave me the idea to find a nice branch to stick the rings on. I thought it was a great idea, and then proceeded to do nothing about it for a few weeks. One day I'd been running errands with my mom, and she is wonderful and took the long way through our little town so I could look through fallen tree branches and twigs, but nothing caught my eye.

We all had dinner with my grandparents last week, and I went through a pile of fallen pieces in their yard, and found four I liked instead. Alas, the idea of my own little ring tree was born.


I used a small pot from my stack of terracotta pots, a piece of Styrofoam from a dollar store, twigs, and rocks, which I also already had. I don't think the supplies would be very expensive at all if you were to buy them all new, not including the rings, of course.






The assembly was very easy. All I had to do was stick the foam in the pot, the twigs in the foam, and pour the rocks in, a few at a time, to weigh down the foam and keep the twigs sturdy. I personally liked the way that the rocks looked, but if you'd like, you could certainly put fewer in and cover them with whatever you think would look better.



My own tree takes up quite a bit of space, but your own wouldn't have to be so large. You could easily use fewer twigs and/or break them down to be shorter.





Voila!

This is a really easy and affordable project, so I just had to share it. I've got my own currently sitting in a corner, with a candlestick and battery-operated candle sitting behind it. It's a lovely little scene both during the day and in the evening.

Is this something you'd try?

  1. What a fun idea! Love how artsy it looks, yet simple and a lovely embracement of nature. Love to bring in elements from outdoors and mix it with the interior. The contrast is magical. And hello, these photos looks like they're from an interior magazine, too gorgeous!! Have a lovely weekend Amber! Xx

  4. This is such a smart DIY! It should feel a lot more special since you actually found the branches in your grandparents yard :). Would love doing something similar for circular earrings, but I am afraid I wouldn't have where else to put it. My desk situation is really bad atm xD. Wishing you a great week! xx
