Crafts: Homemade Rings

21 May

Wrapped around your little finger.

Making rings is incredibly easy and quick! It’s also pretty darn fun, not to mention cheap. So, I decided to delve into my craft box and show you a popular DIY of mine for my very first craft post.

Firstly, decide what centrepiece takes your fancy.

I found this gorgeous vintage brooch on eBay and I just had to have it. Beatrix Potter was always  a childhood favourite of mine so this unique Jemima Puddle-duck piece definitely had my name on.

I also saw this teeny-tiny Coco Chanel perfume bottle sold as supplies for dolls house miniatures and I knew it would look just fabulous on my fingers.

Then just grab some rings blanks, and a strong craft glue.

All you have to do now is simply dab the glue onto the ring and hold the centrepiece into place until secure and leave to dry.

Then that is it, you’re all done. You are now the owner, and creator, of two gorgeous new rings within a matter of minutes. Cute and original. What do you think?

This is such a quick project and they make great novelty gifts (if you can bear to part with them!) If you want to source some other fun miniatures yourselves try checking out dolls house supplies as there are so many options and they are the perfect dimensions for rings! You can literally make anything into a ring; brooches, buttons, coins, sweets, you name it. You see something you like, stick a ring on it, and show it off to the world. We all know the famous ‘saying’*, “If you like it, then you should have put a ring on it”.

I hope you try them. Tweet me your pictures if you do, I’d love to see them! ♥

*Yes, a Beyoncé lyric is a saying. That girl speaks so much sense.
