Rose Ring Tutorial!

I don't know about you guys, but this past weekend seemed to last FOREVER..
I hope you all had an awesome Labor Day weekend!


During this LONG weekend I created a couple little rings for MYSELF :)
I just couldn't help it, I thought these were so cute I had to make a few for me!!


 I think it's very Cute! The possibilities for these are endless! You could add them to a headband, make a necklace and pin... Just think!


Now... Would you like to know how to make these??
Well, here's your chance!


What you will need:
2-10" strips of Ric Rac: (I tried with different sizes of it and the medium size seemed to work the best)
Matching thread
Hot Glue
Blank Ring
Scissors
Cut the ric rac into 2 10" strips
Twist the ric rac together like so (I used a hair clip to hold one end together for me)
Now sew the bottom half of the ric rac together (I would normally use coordinating thread, but for this tutorial I used darker so you would be able to see it)
Take it and start rolling it together, I used a little dot of hot glue every now and then to make sure it would stay together
When you come to the end tuck it under and hot glue it!

When you are finished rolling it, you will have this
Now if you like it like this you can leave it, but I wanted my flower to bloom.
I started with the ends and pushed the petals down so that the flower looked like it had bloomed
I glued a little circle of felt to the bottom of it and then glued it on the pad of the ring, you don't have to glue the felt on, I just like to for looks.
And now you have your Rose Ring!

Have fun creating with these!
I'll see you guys tomorrow!

*I will have these available in my store this weekend!*
