Craft supplies

As you see, they are all different. One unchangeable component is 1/3 of paper roll. So for 6 count set you’ll need only two toilet paper rolls!

Craft knife or any other sharp knife (adult’s work!)

Then, as you see on the picture above from left to right: 1) ribbon with bamboo leaves, hot glue; 2) blue acrylic paint, brush, gemstones – flowers, butterflies etc.; 3) kitchen foil, gemstones; 4) Semitransparent glimmer ribbon, hot glue; 5) red satin ribbon with chicks, hot glue

One on the red background (good for Christmas): 15 mini craft sticks, golden acrylic paint, brush, hot glue, about 16 glass stones (for zig-zag design)

Directions

Cut paper roll into three pieces by width

For ribbon: just wrap it over and under and glue the ends inside ring

For paint: paint it over (inside, too), let dry, hotglue embellishments

For foil: wrap the ring with foil, glue gemstones. Gosh it’s fast! :)

For craft sticks: hotglue all sticks around the ring, paint, let dry, decorate with glass stones (use hot glue)

For beans: just glue them all over the ring in any design you want. Varnish (optional).

Use rings yourself or present somebody. Handmade is always touching and moving!
