I know some of you have been wondering where the heck I have been the last week or so. I’ve been so completely swamped with family and work and life! We’ve been just busy with soccer and parent/teacher conferences, etc. I’m so sorry it has been so long between posts. No worries though… I have ideas running constant in my brain. Crafting, decorating, baking, and shopping is what keeps me going. It’s my life!
I saw this idea for making rings out of Antique buttons… they were so cute! But I don’t have any antique buttons. So I have been looking for buttons everywhere I go. I go to antique stores often, but haven’t found good buttons yet. I’m still hunting!
When I started looking for buttons, I found that there are so many things you can use to make rings. My little sister made a bunch of rings out of old necklace pendants she didn’t use anymore. They made super cute rings!
For this project you will need:
- Buttons ( fabric stores! )
- Ring Base ( I found them at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Joann’s. My favorite were at wide band from Joann’s. Michaels were least desirable. )
- Jewelry Glue ( jewelry section at your craft store )
- Wire Cutters
- Metal File (can be found at local hardware store )
