diy wood ring box

diy ring box | almost makes perfect

one last minute simple wedding DIY we made was this ring box. we wanted something minimal and a little masculine, and i had this plan of making this super rad intricate one — but with time permitted, i decided to keep it easy by using a premade box.

i purchased this acacia salt cellar and stuffed the inside with padding and voila! a custom little ring box that fits both of our rings and feels really safe and sturdy.

01 | fill your salt cellar with layered sponges cut into circles until you reach the height you want. i wanted mine close the top.

02 | once you have all your sponges ready to go, cut the top layer of sponge into three pieces (if you are only using for one ring, cut into half instead)

03 | cover the three individual pieces with your fabric, secure with fabric glue.

04 | glue down to the layer below. let dry overnight and stick your rings in!

    Love the ring box! So simple and I really like the look.

    Also, no pressure but I can’t wait to hear what you guys thought of Tulum! We’re considering it for our own honeymoon/elopement. 🙂

  2. This box is so so nice. I like the clean look and the materials. Such a cool idea… I might try something similar for my earrings! So tired of having them scattered all around my jewel box. Let’s see if I can make it work. =D

  3. wow, so simple and perfect. I like the idea of creating a few of these for storing jewelry while traveling. 6000milestohome.blogspot.com

  4. What a beautiful ring box! Such a great idea. I have that exact same salt cellar that I actually use for salt 🙂

  5. easy & great ! love the box too, and that would make me put my special rings in this box instead of deposit them to a different corner in my bathroom from day to day… all the best – julia

  9. So you didn’t make the box, you just stuffed some foam in something you bought… inspirational. I was hoping for an actual “DIY WOOD RING BOX”

  10. Hi Molly –
    I know this is SO late, but I was wondering how you carried the box. We’re considering doing something similar, but I’m worried how the box will look stuck in a groomsman’s pocket. Did you find that the box was too bulky for a pocket?
