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.
I tied the elastic thread around her finger and knotted it a few times. After she picked the button and added some sticky rhinestones to it, I hot glued it to the knot of the elastic. 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:
CAUTION - Obviously these are small and easy to swallow and could potentionally 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 prescence. Please use caution if making for a child and would label this as not suitable for young children. Now that that is out of the way, I WOULD recommend this as a simple, yet fun project for the tween age group!
