Crafty Cocktail Rings

Here's a quick and silly project that I had lots of fun with last night!

These are just fabric-covered buttons I made with some of my favorite fabric prints. If you've never made fabric-covered buttons before, go out and do it now. You can find all the supplies you need for cheap at a fabric store. It is so fun and easy and addictive.

After I made the buttons, I pulled off the little loop at the back of the button where you would normally sew the button on. This is just a bent piece of wire that is easily popped out with pliers.

Last, I hot-glued the buttons onto some adjustable ring blanks I bought on Etsy. Finding the ring blanks was the hardest part - Michaels totally let me down. Thank goodness for Etsy.

So I went a little crazy and made 10 of these happy little cocktail rings. My favorite is the pirate cat - it's from the Tokidoki-esque fabric I used on my sleep shorts last winter.

I have no idea what to do with these now. If you're a friend who reads my blog and you want one, just let me know and it's yours! :)


  1. Oooh me me me! I love these, especially the deer. I am not even sure if I have commented before and now it will seem awful if I comment just to get a ring! So how about a little swap??

    (I found you via the Toy society by the way!)


  2. I love these!!! Could I please have the little birdie? It's so cute! Show me how and I'll teach my little first/second graders; they'll go nuts!

  3. Those are pretty cute. Dibs on the owl!
