Artsy Ring Dish

I have been trying to come up with ideas for crafts, that the girls will actually keep and use. Something that will not end up on the floor, under the bed, or in the trash can. I have a hard time seeing money, time, and creativity go to waste.

I am very happy with this little guy, or should I say gal (it is kind of a girly thing).  Though you could man it up, for a Father's Day coin dish.  Oh, the possibilities!

I found these little sauce dishes at our local 99cent store.  I initially grabbed a few for myself, for kitchen use.  But then I got thinking...  "this would be perfect to use as a ring dish".
*
How fun would it be to use permanent markers to design them how ever you wished?  Endless creative possibilities!
*
I was sold on the idea!  Then I bought the whole shelf.  The cashier asked me what I was going to do with all of them.  I proudly described my plans.  She loved it too!  And I smiled.
*
I made one to place on top of my dresser.  But I am thinking I should make another one to put in my kitchen.  I remove my rings frequently when I am baking, especially when making pizza dough.

NEEDED SUPPLIES
sauce dish
Sharpie permanent markers
a dash of creativity
(pretty rings or coins to fill it with)

NOTE
I found that you'll want to make sure the ink is completely dry before touching.  It dries quickly, but it may smear if you touch it right away.  Just sayin'.

This is what I did in my first attempt at creating an Artsy Ring Dish:

  1. Update: this was a favorite among the girls at camp! I think they would have done 5 each if I had enough supplies. I was in awe of the masterpieces which were created.

  2. I am new to your blog! Thank you for all of your inspired ideas! I only wish that you would have taken a picture of how the girls decorated their ring bowls! :D

  3. Me too! I was so frustrated with my camera that week at camp. It wasn't accepting my SD card for whatever reason. I know both my daughters have their ring dishes, I'll have to sneak a photo or two for you. :)
