On Superbowl Sunday our friend Krista brought over some yummy cupcakes. One of them had a really cute football ring on top, so my son plucked it off and took off playing. A short time later my youngest realized he had a ring and really wanted one. Since I was trying to keep her entertained (nope, she didn’t want to watch the game!) I asked her if she wanted to make a ring. I had no idea how I was going to do so but figured I could wing it. And sure enough, after looking through my stash I grabbed some elastic thread, buttons and a little bling and we made these Super Simple Button Rings!
BUTTON RING INSTRUCTIONS:
Tie the elastic thread around the finger you want to wear the ring on and knot it a few times.
Pick a button. If you are using more than one, hot glue the two togerher.
Hot glue the button onto the knotted portion of the elastic thread.
Voila! A simple ring!
Of course my son wanted to make one to, so here is his creation – just two buttons glued together, then glued to the elastic thread:
WORD OF CAUTION
Obviously these are small and easy to swallow and could potentially be a choking hazard. My daughter is not a child to put things in her mouth, so I am not horribly concerned, but she is only allowed to wear it in my presence. Please use caution if making for a child. I would label this as not suitable for young children.
