I made myself a cute little trio of rings...
And they were SO cheap and SO simple.
You're going to want to make a million!
Here's all you need:
.5 mm stretchy bead cord
clear nail polish (optional)
Easy enough, right?
Start by laying out your t-shirt on the table. You're just going to use this as your work surface...it will keep beads from rolling everywhere. Now, cut a 5-6 inch piece of cord and start stringing your beads.
Once it looks like you're getting enough beads for a ring, hold it in a loop and try it on your finger. Then add or remove beads as necessary.
When finished, tie your ring closed. (You can paint the little knot with clear nail polish to keep it from sliding apart...but you don't have to.) Then trim off the excess cording.
Repeat as many times as you want... in as many colors as you want... whatever size you want!
You can wear them together in a stack.
Or with another ring.
Or you can use the same method to make a "statement" ring.
Just use a large bead as a centerpiece, then add findings and small beads.
We made some with the girls at camp (age 12-18) and they loved it. Making these little rings would be a great party activity or favor, as well. The supplies are so inexpensive, you could make a slew for only a few dollars.
(I think I need some more beads!)
