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!

DIY Button Ring Tutorial

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.
