DIY: Wire Rings

Hi guys! You can probably tell by the pictures that this DIY is a personal favorite of mine. Yes, I seem to have cranked out a “bazillion” wire rings in the past few days. I started out just wanting to make one little bow ring, but after that took two minutes, I decided to see what else I could do.

You will need some wire, scissors, pliers, and a chapstick tube. I chose pink silver-plated copper wire (~ $3 for an 8 yd. pack at any craft supply store). Eight yards will make a “bazillion” rings. I used the chapstick tube as a ring mandrel which you can wrap your wire around to form the ring band. There is no real trick to making these rings- just basically trial and error. I never measured anything, nor did I follow any tutorial. I think the easiest one to start with is the rosette ring (pictured to the right of the bow). Click here to see a step-by-step on how to make it. The bow ring is not a true bow, but just merely a bow shape.

Once you make a few, it gets easier and easier. If you mess up or make one that you aren’t happy with, just try again with a fresh piece of wire. After making the rings pictured above, I moved on to the rings below (click picture to enlarge).

 

To add a pop of color, simply string a bead or stone on the wire and wrap the wire around. I didn’t follow any specific instructions, but HERE is a thorough tutorial on one way to make them. The possibilities are endless! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. These would make great little gifts, no?

  1. I really like the color of the wire- it’s pink- just my style. I’ve seen rings like this before, didn’t know how easy they were to make. Thanks for the post!
