I have a bad habit of taking my rings off a lot to do things like wash dishes, weed the garden, paint, sand furniture, etc. I’m always worried that I am going to set them somewhere and not be able to find them. So I made these cute ring dishes to place them in while I’m working.
These are not that difficult to make. Here is what you’ll need:
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton balls and cutips
- Little dishes (I got mine from World Market)
- Oil based Sharpie Markers (I bought extra fine)
First I highly recommend practicing what you are going to write before you start. This will also give you a better feel of the pens (be sure to follow the directions on the pen on how to get the ink flowing).
Now using your cotton balls, use the rubbing alcohol to clean the dishes. After cleaning, do your best to not touch the area you will be writing on. Then go for it! The first dish I did was super easy with our cursive names. But then for some reason, I had the hardest time with the date on the one with just our initials. If you mess up, remember that you can use rubbing alcohol on a cutip to erase and redo it! I probably redid the date on ours ten times! Once I even put the wrong year haha! Once you are done decorating the dishes, let them dry for 24 hours.
Next place your dishes on a cookie sheet on place them in the oven.
Set the oven to 325 degrees, and let the dishes bake in the oven for 90 minutes. I also recommend letting them cool in the oven. (Quick note–the red heart did darken a little bit after baking) And after that, you are done! Voila!
I decided not to add any clear protective spray on mine since I will not be handling them that much. I recommend hand washing these and not putting them in the dishwasher.
