DIY Rae Dunn Inspired Bling Ring Dish

Rae Dunn pottery - ring dish or bowl

Rae Dunn pottery is taking over the farmhouse look with the tall skinny black letters and white ceramic backdrops. This simple Rae Dunn inspired bowl lets you try your hand at making simple pottery with clay and the the black skinny Rae Dunn style font everyone is crazy over. This DIY ring dish is a nice thing to have on the nightstand or next to the kitchen sink...the place where rings are removed.  The best way to keep track of them is to have a place for them.

This copycat Rae Dunn dish would make a perfect gift for any jewelry wearing woman in your life!  This knock off DIY version that can be made quickly and cheaply - no running all over town searching for Rae Dunn Collection dishes needed!

I also think it would be perfect for a country style wedding! Wouldn't it be fun to have your ring bearer carry your rings down the aisle in this perfect little Rae Dunn style dish? Then you can keep it in your home and always be reminded of your big day.

STEP 3: Shape!

Place the circle of clay over the bottom side of a small bowl.

Press the clay smoothly on the bowl to for the perfect dish shape.

STEP 4: Bake!

Bake the clay right on the bowl on a baking sheet in the oven according to the package directions.  (About 275* F for 20 minutes.)  Remove from oven and let cool.  Then remove the clay dish from the bowl.

STEP 5: Cut the Vinyl!

Now use an electronic cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette to cut black vinyl letters, just an inch tall.  Use the FREE font THE SKINNY.  Pick the word you would like to cut, like BLING and have the machine cut a perfect piece of vinyl.

Weed the excess vinyl out of the skinny letters.  Work carefully so the letters don't lift off.
 Cover the vinyl with transfer tape and use a scraper to press the transfer tape down.

STEP 6: Apply the vinyl! 

Peel the backing off the vinyl and place the letters down on the clay dish.
 Press the letters down with the scraper and then gently peel back the transfer tape.

Fill with Bling!

This is a great handmade gift for anyone that loves Rae Dunn and the farmhouse vibe.
Let's be real, it will probably always look like pictured below:
