{EaSy} DIY Rings!

Here is a FuN ring idea that only took me a few minutes to make.
Here are the supplies I used:


I bought my ring blanks @ Michaels...and I bought the buttons and glue @ Walmart.
First I cut off the bottom of my button with my wire cutters...


Then...sanded the stump down so the middle was flush with the rest of the button...


Then I used E-6000 to glue it on! So FuN and EaSy!!

This project turned out to be a little over $1.00 a ring! WaHoo!! My kind of project!!
Check out these other FuN button ring links that I came across on the web: Here and Here !
So CuTe!!
Wouldn't these make a FuN inexpensive gift for Mothers Day?!!
Speaking of Mothers Day...thanks so much to those of you who have linked up your Mothers Day Ideas!! They are AWESOME!!
And...if you would still like to link up...go ahead...it will be open till Mothers Day!!

Happy Crafting!!

  11. Hi Prince Family!

    They were on one of the jewelry making isles where you can make your own {vintage looking}necklaces... the package is light purple...and it says it is made by PLAID...and is called Pearls & Pumps. The store in Nampa Idaho had them.
    Below is a link to a pic of what the package looks like...but I couldn't find a pic of the ring blanks. Hopefully this helps :)

  14. yay i found them right where you said.
    another thank you to you!! also a quick tip to get the shanks off with out having to sand them after.... take a sharp knife/razor blade & put on the top of the shank. CAREFULLY take a hammer and lightly pound on the knife/razor blade and it will pop right off and be totally smooth.

    I just made a couple for my sis for a quick & fun bd gift. Took me seriously less than 3 minutes. SO darling!

  16. This is a darling idea! I am loving it! My 3 chickadees will love to do this. I can see my birthday present stash building. (heck, who am I kidding-I don't have a stash-I need to get one though-we had 3 birthday parties last week!)
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    Happy Thursday!!

  20. How funny! I JUST used the same process to make rings out of old clip-on costume jewelry. I didn’t notice the strong inhalant aspect of the e6000 glue though. I can’t wait to get my hands on more costume jewelry to make more. ALSO, my dad has a heavy-duty grinder that he inherited from his dad and it makes the sanding part take like 2 seconds literally.
    I listed them here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MonocularSpectacular
