I just returned from a wonderful weekend at the beach with some other bloggers-turned-dear-friends, where we shared a gorgeous beach house along the Marin County coast. So…I have beachy things on the brain!I’ve been hanging onto some vintage wooden drapery rings (aka: curtain rings) and thought of a cute and easy project to share. Vintage wooden drapery rings are easy to find on Etsy, eBay, antique shops and thrift stores. The chunkier the better. New rings will work fine as well, however they tend to be a big skinnier. Mine were already painted, but if you find some that are darker, just give them a good coat of white or off-white spray paint.
Supplies include rings, antique alphabet rubber stamps, stamp pad and Sharpie markers (or paint.)
I removed the eye-screws and made marks at each quarter of the rings as guides and then colored in sections, narrow at the ring center growing wider towards the outer edge and continuing to the other side.
I marked each with S.S. HOLDEN and my kids’ names on blue and red banded rings. After drying, it’s a good idea to coat them with satin finish acrylic spray.
The red banded lifesavers will hang outside for beach towels.
The blue banded ones will hang in the kids’ bathroom for bath towels.
Drapery ring lifesavers would also be cute as ornaments, gift embellishments, picture frame embellishments, beach house key rings and more!
