So I wanted to create something last night. I've been so lazy and wanting to do absolutely nothing since Christmas! I felt like I've been going and going for the past couple months. Yet I wanted to give you guys an idea for a quick, inexpensive, and super fun craft project. So I made this felt flower blinged ring. I love it. If you have any birthdays coming up, make a few of these lovelies in several different colors for them.
Want to make them? Here's how...
You will need the following:
* Glue gun
* Adjustable ring base
* Buttons or Rhinestones
I used rhinestone buttons for the center of my ring. I also recycled a ring I previously made for the ring base. You can find plain flat ring bases at Michaels, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby.
Start by cutting a strip of felt slightly less than 1" wide by 11" long.
Now just hot glue down the very edge of the felt and start pressing the ends together.
Do not glue the fold part. You will be cutting there so no glue!
Now cut along the entire strip once it's glued. I cut mine sort of close so the fringe
was closer together.
Now starting at the end start gluing and rolling your strip until you have something that looks like this flower. I left my center part just a tiny bit open for the rhinestone to fit into. You can do it however you like.
Now I took my hot glue and placed some glue in the center of the flower and put my rhinestone button in the middle.
Take your adjustable ring base and your E6000 now and glue your flower to your ring base with a good amount of E6000. You can try just hot gluing it, but sometimes hot glue doesn't hold well to metal. If you use E6000 you will need to let it sit overnight to dry.
And you end up with this really cute ring! You could do this on a pendent, belt, shoe accessories, purse accessories, whatever!!! This would also be a great gift for those pre-teen girls.
