Ring rolls keep rings organised and prevent them from getting scratched in the bottom of a jewellery box. Ring rolls are simple to make, whether you're displaying jewellery in a shop or at an art market, or you just need a safe way to store jewellery at home. They can be made to look attractive for jewellery displays, or you can use whatever you find around the house for your own storage purposes.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Cut a ½ inch-diameter wooden dowel to the length needed for your jewellery box or display. Use a hand saw to cut the dowel to length.

  2. 2

    Cut a sheet of thick felt to the same length as your dowel. The felt must be wide enough to wrap around the dowel completely.

  3. 3

    Coat the dowel with a spray adhesive. You can also use carpenter's glue to attach the felt to the wood.

  4. 4

    Wrap the felt around the dowel, pressing it into the glue so it stays in place. Trim any excess felt with a pair of scissors.

  5. 5

    Cut two ½-inch-diameter circles. Glue these to the ends of the dowel to finish the ring roll. Slide rings onto the dowel to store or display them.

Tips and warnings

  • Alter the width of the dowel to fit the size of rings. A larger or smaller diameter may be a better fit for your rings.
  • Use velvet instead of felt for a fancier roll. You can also cover the felt with a decorative fabric.
  • Some hardware stores will cut the dowel to length if you prefer not to cut it yourself.
