Rings! This is another request from way back in the lost email pile. I think maybe this was requeted by Alina but I’m not completely sure! Whoever it was asked for me to show ways of making rings that don’t include those cheap metal resizable ones. Well this is my favorite way: crochet!
This is my finished ring, I wanted something soft, huge and forest-y.
You can see the inside part is a little crochet loop. It’s nice because it’s a bit stretchy, very soft and you can make it completely custom to your finger.
What you need:
- Fake flowers
- Glue gun (or needle and thread)
- Crochet hook
So let’s make the ring part first.
Grab your yarn and crochet hook.
Cast on a stitch:
Chain long enough to wrap comfortably around your finger. If you want to learn how to crochet have a look over here at my beginners crochet tutorial.
Make sure it’s not too tight.
Join the chain to the start again.
Tie it off into the loop and you’ve made a ring!
Now let’s cover it with pretty things 😀
I made mine using these cheap fake flowers. I needed 2 lengths of flowers: short for the main bunch and long for the bunch which falls down the hand.
For the short ones I just pulled some off the stems.
Long I cut the stems at the base:
To start the bunch glue 3 of the short flowers together.
Then I added another couple around the outside and dropped them down lower and lower using the long stemmed ones. Glue it all in place and you’re ready for the next step.
To soften the look up I made a simple lace bow.
I glued the bow to the back of the flowers…
Glued the ring to that…
and cut out a circle of felt…
Stuck the felt over the base of the ring to make it all nice and secure!
Taadaaa pretty and very comfortable to wear 😀
The best part about these is that you can push the crochet part flat, slide in a bobby pin and wear it in your hair too. Versatility for the win 😀
This particular ring makes me very happy because it can be worn with so many kinds of fashion!
