How to Make a Cute DIY Ring Dish

4 Materials
30 Minutes

I’m going to show you how easy it is to make an adorable and super affordable DIY ring dish!

These guys make the cutest little holiday, hostess, birthday gifts…you name it.

Gather your supplies:

Here are the three spray paints I used. The ones that say they cover plastic tend to work best.

Spray your animals in your fave colors and let completely dry. Gather your dishes and glue.

Follow the direction on the glue. My glues recommended adding it to both items to be glued together and let set for 1-2 minutes before sticking together. I glued the feet, then lightly pressed some glue on the dish, then stuck both together after the 1-2 minutes.

Repeat this step to cover all of your dishes, and that’s it! You now have your very own DIY ring dish (or 10)!

And another shot of these cuties in action…I’m partial to the pink poodle.

I also made a couple ring dishes using larger glass dishes, which were $1.99 from target. You can use any size dish.

I’ll be giving these as holiday gifts for my friends and family. I think they’ll be a hit.

I highly recommend this quick and easy project!

    Thanks for idea - I was looking at these at Kohl's and they were $12 - $16. - so you are a genius.

    Where did you buy the toys?

      Dollar stores, Wal-Mart, and any other place that sells toys usually have bagged animals for a dollar or two.
