What you’ll need to make your Ribbon Wrapped Ring:
- 1 Hose clamp
- 2 Colors of ribbon
- Gold elastic
- 1 Large bead
- Hot glue
Adjust your hose clamp. You can do this by loosening the skrew at the top of the hose clamp. You’ll want to make sure it’s very loose to start because as you wrap your ribbon and elastic it will get tighter. It’s a good idea to check the size frequently as you go.
Put a small drop of hot glue on the inside underneath the top of the hose clamp and attach the end of your ribbon that you will be using for the main part of the ring.
Start wrapping your ribbon around the hose clamp, pulling it snug. Before you wrap the top part of the hose clamp is a good time to check your size. Just remember that even at this point, you still want it a little loose.
Continue wrapping the top part of the hose clamp, covering it completely. When you get to the end put a small drop of hot glue to attach the end of the ribbon.
Take your large bead, needle and thread and making a big loop, go through the hole in the bead, around the top of the hose clamp, running the needle and thread through the ribbon just underneath the top of the hose clamp. Before you pull your thread tight, put a small drop of hot glue on the top of the ring to secure your large bead.
Pull your thread tight and make at least another 2 loops around to hold your bead.
Take your 2nd ribbon color and fold it in half longways. Place a small drop of hot glue on the side of your ring and attach the end of the ribbon. Start wrapping your ribbon around the top of your ring twisting it as you go, this will give it more texture.
When you are finished secure the end of your ribbon with a small drop of hot glue.
Taking your gold elastic tuck one end inside a fold in your ribbon, choose a fold that is more hidden, and secure with a small drop of hot glue.
Start wrapping your gold elastic around your ring, pull it snug but not to tight. When you are finished cut your elastic and tuck your end inside another fold in the ribbon and secure with a small drop of hot glue.
With Summer right around the corner this colorful Ribbon Wrapped ring will be an asset to any flirty dress or basic jeans. You can mix up some really bright color combinations and create a serious statement.
Go big, go bold and add a pop of color to your wardrobe. Have fun!
