Many times, the items that I buy at Arc thrift stores are for organization. I have lots of little dishes and trinket boxes for storage that I have thrifted at Arc.
But I do not have a ring holder for next to the sink when I am doing dishes. I started hunting for one recently and when I did not find one right away I decided I would make my own. I found a small saucer with a great pattern from one of my favorite arc thrift stores.
Then I managed to find a small ceramic unicorn for only $.69 to be the actual ring holder.
I liked how it looked with the unicorn set straight on the plate but I decided I wanted to fancy it up a bit and paint the unicorn gold to match the pattern on the saucer. After painting it I used glue that bonds ceramics to glue the unicorn down.
I love how unique it is to my home since I thrifted the pieces separately and put it together myself. That is my favorite thing to do with items from Arc.
