This year at the Craft and Hobby show I got to show off Plaid's Ring Bling
line. With a love for big rings, I was in heaven! Women (and a few
men) stopped by to make a ring. It only took a few minutes and everyone
walked away smiling. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Plaid booth!
The line is made up of ring blanks and a few bracelet blanks with tons of
embellishments to go on top. The embellishments are metal, acrylic,
sparkly, beaded and matte, tiny and big. I love that the rings come in
different adjustable metal colors as well as styles from vintage to modern so
there is one to suit everyone's personal taste.
Here are just a few of the
embellishments that you'll find in the line. I've stacked two or three
pieces together so you get some ideas. Once you're happy with the
layering, it's time to glue!
Use a multi-purpose adhesive like
Quick Grip or Dazzle Tac to put them together. Put a small dot of glue on a
piece of paper and dip a toothpick in it to apply small bits of glue to tiny
You can prop the rings up on a tube
of lip gloss while they dry. Another idea is to fill a bowl with rice and
bury the ring part to hold it upright while it dries.
One ring leads to another and
another and another. Super addictive! This is your warning!
For an extra idea, you can glue a
pretty button or two to a ring blank. Or how about cutting the back off
of grandma's old clip on earring and glue it to a ring like I did here.
This could be a perfect activity for
girl's night out, teen slumber party, DIY prom jewelry, and rainy day activity. Plaid's new Ring Bling line can be found at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts.
