Finally got around to making myself a real ring display!!
Made with rolled thin layers of upholstery foam, vintage aubergine colored satin fabric and an empty chocolate tin. I used hot glue on the foam and to wrap the fabric.
-Depending on the type of foam you're using you might have to actually make more than will seem to fit in the container to make them really snug. Placing the rings in the fold will create a space so the snugger the rolls the less the chance that you will see the bottom of the container.
-Test each roll in the container as you go along to make sure the size is constant and the fit is snug. You might have to trim them a bit once you wrap them with fabric but only trim a little at a time.
-Since hot glue on fabric doesn't come out it's a good idea to keep all the rest of the fabric away from the 'hot glue zone' until needed for wrapping the current foam roll.
-You might want to sew the ends instead since using hot glue can be hazardous to your finger tips when trying to do little folds!
-Make sure you have more than enough fabric in case some get ruined by an errant blob of hot glue:)
-Some fabrics have a 'grain' so make sure every 'roll' is covered in fabric using the same grain every time, this is especially true with satin and velvets.
