DIY Cement Ring Holder

by Sha Khezri

Love rings, but can’t keep track of them to save your life? Unfortunately there are those of us that are, “out of sight, out of mind” types, forgetting our rings when taking them off to wash our hands, cook meals, or get ready for bed. If this sounds like you, this easy DIY cement ring holder is the perfect preservation project.  

Materials needed:

Materials

Quick-Setting Cement No. 1240

Paint – in the color/s of your choice (we used Midnight Show T17-17)

Clean water

Tracing or wax paper

Painters tape

Small containers

Detail paint brush

Disposable gloves

Scissors

Sandpaper

Step 1: Measure out cement needed

In order to get the right consistency, the ratio of the cement to water must be 5:1. Use small containers to help get this proportion right.

Step 1

Step 2: Tape One Side of the tracing paper

After cutting a square piece of tracing paper, attach a length of painters tape along one side.

Step 2

Step 3: Create a cone

Create a cone by rolling the tracing paper over from one corner of the square to the side with the taped edge.  Secure the cone together with the painters tape.

Step 3

Cut your cone to desired length with scissors.

Step 4

Step 4: Add water to cement

Put on your gloves and begin mixing cement by slowly adding water to it.

Step 5 Step 6

Step 5: Mix

Mix water with cement slowly by massaging them together. Continue the process until the cement takes on a clay like consistency.

Step 7 Step 8

Step 6: Fill cone with cement

Push cement into the cone, gently press out the air bubbles as you do so.

Step 9

Step 7: Let dry

Place the cone in a container and leave it to set for 12 hours.

Step 10

Step 8: Remove cement cone from paper

Slowly remove the painters tape from the head of the cone and unwrap the tracing paper.

Step 11 Step 12

Step 9: Sand

If desired, smooth out the rough edges with a piece of sand paper.

Step 13

Step 10: Design

You can choose to paint the whole cement cone, or give it a custom design. Use painters tape to mask out a simple design.

Step 15 Step 16

Step 11: Paint

Take out your a small amount of your paint color with a small container. Paint your cone with selected color and detail brush. Allow to dry 2 hours and apply second coat if necessary/desired. Remove tape when dry.
