Ballerina Ring Dish

My latest project was inspired by the endless shelves of white dishes at DAISO.

I picked up a few of the soy sauce dishes to use as ring holders.  

Then I dug out some tiny plastic figurines that I bought on ebay awhile back.  It was a mixed bag including a bunch of dancers.  (Tiny dancers,  but no Tony Danzas.  Shame about that.)

After spray painting both the dishes and the dancers, I hot glued the figurines in the center.

I'm pretty pleased with the result and I think they'd make a great party favor at a ballet-themed birthday party.

(Too bad my girls don't dance...)
