Tutorial: make your own ring

When I was younger I was always making my own jewellery but as I have gotten older I have become a little bit lazy/time poor. Pip's accessory swap was the perfect time to get off my butt pull out the old kit and whip something up for my partner. I ended up making her a button ring, from the big packet of buttons I bought ages ago. Making your own ring is SO EASY, and a quick way to add a personal and unique touch to an outfit. Here is a quick step by step tutorial.

1. Head to your nearest material/craft store, for the Australians spotlight or lincraft will do. Here you will be able to buy the ring base that looks just like this -
2. This is the fun bit, find something that you want to put on your ring, it can be absolutely anything as long is it has a flat part to stick to the base. You should be able to find something at your craft store or you might already have something at home.

3. Using a hot glue gun stick your object to the base and hold together for 20 seconds. Allow to dry and voila your own personalised ring.
