This vintage style decoupage ring dish is an easy and creative way to add glamour to an otherwise mundane household item.
Hi guys! It’s Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life. Today I am here to show you guys how to make a cute jewelry dish.
This is a great little jewelry holder that is big enough to hold your everyday essentials like your favorite rings, but also small enough to sit on your bedside table or vanity without taking up much room.
I had picked up these gorgeous Pip Studio paper napkins last summer at Home Goods, and since we don’t use paper napkins at meals, I have been decoupaging everything I can with them, I love them so!
Here’s What You Need:
- Little Ceramic Dish
- Paper Napkins (Here is a cute choice. This one is gorgeous as well)
- Mod Podge Matte
- Paint Brush
- Fine Tip Scissors
To start with clean and dry your little dish.
Take your napkin and carefully pull apart the sheets or plies of the napkin apart.
Discard the backs and keep the front ply that has the printing on it.
Carefully cut out a few strips that are wider and taller than you need to go around the four sides of the dish.
Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge onto one side of the dish.
Carefully lay a piece of napkin on the medium, lining up the straight edge of the napkin with the top of the side of the dish.
Carefully smooth out the napkin along the side and over the edges a bit. The napkin will be really thin so smoothing it out with a brush gently instead of your fingers will be a little easier.
Cut off the excess that is on the bottom of the dish and cut carefully around the sides.
Smooth out the napkin some more with the brush and some more medium on the top of what you’ve already laid down.
Now do the same thing with the other three sides of the dish.
When you get to the corners overlap the napkin pieces slightly. Brush any folds down flat and smooth firmly with the brush.
Once you have all your sides, add a layer of medium over the top.
For the inside I cut out a rose from the top ply of the napkin, then I painted a layer of medium in the bottom of the dish and carefully smoothed the cutout onto the bottom, then applied a topcoat of medium over the rose.
I really love how my little jewelry dish turned out!
My bedside table is very small, but it fits so nicely next to my lamp and whatever book I happen to be reading at the time.
You can find some really beautiful party napkins at your local discount stores.
So, the next time you find some stunning paper napkins, snag them up and get to decoupaging! It’s so much fun! I’ll be back soon with more diy fun!
