Wire Rings: Make them yourself

Wire Rings

Wire rings! I’ve been practicing on making wire rings this Easter, and they are starting to look really good! I had a blog post six months ago called DIY Wire Rings, where I first started to make rings, but now I think I’ve found the perfect way to make them.

Wire Ring Instructions

1. Supplies: Craft wire (18 gauge), a lip balm/stick, a wire cutter and a flat nosed plier. 2. Start with three pieces of wire, approximately 14 inches/35 cm. 3. Twirl them around the lip balm. 4. When the wires meet on the other side twirl them into each other. 5. Continue to twirl around and around until you get the size you want. 6. Bend three and three wires down to the side of the actual ring and cut off the superfluous part so the the end will come outside the ring – this way you will not scratch your finger when wearing it.

    I make similar rings and use 12 gauge aluminum wire. They are very popular and best of all easy to make!

    My first finished ring was oval. Think I need some more practice?

      Tighten real good around the lip balm and try a couple more times: Then you’ve got it!

    I have fatter fingers than the size of a lip balm tube? Any suggestions?
