RING Around the ROSIE


I've been looking everywhere for just the right yellow ring. I couldn't find one anywhere! So, I found some inspiration and a tutorial at a site called mommarake.com
and decided to make my own. It takes about 5mins or less and you can make 1 for about 50cents. This is my version of how to make them.


You need a ruler, glue gun, scissors, rick rack in the color of your choice, and a ring blank. Ring blanks can be purchased at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
They're half off at Hobby Lobby this week:) Also, I used the medium rick rack. I like the size of flower the medium makes.


First measure two 12inch strips of rick rack.



Next, hot glue one end of the strand and then twist them together.



Once the two strands are twisted together you will start at the glued end and roll the strands up.
You may want to add a dab of glue here and there to hold it together.


You will end up with a flower that looks something like this. Next, hot glue the flower to the ring blank. Your flower will be pretty flat. Once you've glued it, you will want to fold back the petals to add dimension to your flower. I just used my fingers to sort of smash (don't you love it when I get technical ;) the flower down.


There you have it! An adorable flower ring in the color or colors of your choice!



The ring blanks I bought are adjustable. You can make them for yourself, your friends, your daughters, or I think they would make great Christmas Gifts too! They would also be lots of fun to make at church activities. In our church they would be great for YW's, Faith in God girls, Relief Society, or even girl's camp. Rick rack comes in a rainbow of colors. So grab your glue gun and get to work.

Stay Fashionable! Love, Candy
