A boxing ring is a square-shaped area where boxers compete against each other by swinging their gloved fists and moving around the ring. Boxing rings usually have a solid surface to allow boxers to move around with ease, plus three flexible lines stretching out across all four of its sides to ensure the boxers don't fall out. Making your own miniature paper boxing ring allows you to use it for display purposes.
Set the square wood base on a flat surface. Cover each side of the base by gluing construction paper on all four sides with your wooden glue sticks.
Cut your fabric to fit over each of your wooden dowels with your scissors. Cover your wooden dowels with glue. Attach the fabric to the glued dowels.
Spread super glue onto the bottom ends of each of the dowels. Attach the bottom ends to clay putty bases. Spread super glue onto the four corners of your square wooden base. Attach the putty bases onto each corner. Consult your super glue's instructions to see how long it will take to dry.
Measure between two of your dowels with a ruler. Cut 12 rubber band lengths of this measured length with your scissors. For example, if you measured the length between two dowels as 8 inches, cut out 12 rubber bands with lengths of 8 inches each.
Connect three of your band lengths vertically with glue to attach your top-right dowel to your bottom-right dowel. Connect three more band lengths vertically with glue to attach your top-left dowel to your bottom-left dowel. Connect three more band lengths horizontally with glue to attach your top-right dowel to your top-left dowel. Connect the final three band lengths horizontally with glue to attach your bottom-right dowel to your bottom-left dowel. You now having a paper boxing ring.
Put your paper boxing ring out for display purposes, or use it for entertainment with action figures and other items.
