...actually there's two winning ideas because I combined a bit of both:
Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love and Jessi. Congratulations ladies.... Send an email to me at littlediva @ aapt.net.au and I'll get you to choose your prize - a ring of course !!
So here it is, I really liked Jessi's idea of the photo frame with the nails to hang the rings individually but decided to use my mini pegs to attach them instead....
and then I also loved the idea of using a "wooden trinket display cabinet thingy" (love the wording there - he he) from Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love.
I was stoked when I went searching through the cupboards to find something to use and I came across these fabulous Royal Selangor boxes which used to house my husbands 21st Pewter Mugs (which thankfully are now on display in the bar downstairs!).
I took all the bits and pieces of foam out, found some paint in pink and green - which coincidentally happened to be the exact same colour of pink and green as the bowls I originally used as my ring displays - and gave them a couple of coats of paint.
So, I love it because I still get to use the rice idea and also get to use my mini pegs. I also have less to cart around now as I can keep the rice in the boxes, instead of a separate container, and the rings that are pegged can also stay there.
What do you think?
If you live in Brisbane and want to see my little creations and also my range of rings in person, I'll be at the Racecourse Road Street Party, Hamilton/Ascot, this Sunday (just outside the St Augustine's Church Hall). Otherwise, I'm hoping to have time to list some of the rings in my Made It store next week.
Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to share your fantastic ideas. There were other ideas I really liked too but I just didn't have the time or patience to pull them off!!
