How to make a ring holder out of concrete

Having a place to set down rings when they are not being worn is an important step in making sure they don't get broken or lost. This concrete ring holder not only provides a safe place for your rings but will also look good no matter where you put it.
With its geometric shape and pretty gray color, this ring holder is an easy way to add some modern vibes to your space. The best part? The addition of copper spray paint gives the concrete a beautiful marbled look.
