This is a great quick and easy tutorial that you could even have the kids make! It takes very little materials and no tools!
- Stretchy Bead Cord
- Buttons (one or more per ring)
- Small beads (you could use seed beads or other tiny beads
Cut off some elastic cord. Measure the amount you need to go around your finger and add a few inches on each side.
I used 2 beads for my ring and stacked them. The first one was a shank button, so I just slid the cord through and centered the button.
Then slide the other button so it will actually be under the shank button. You can also stack flat buttons or just use one button.
Start adding beads to the cord. Just add as many as you need to go around your finger.
Next you’ll tie a knot in your ring. It is close to impossible to see how to do this on invisible stretchy cord, so I’ll show you with yarn instead.
First make a tie, like you are starting to tie your shoe.
Tie another knot like the first (I think this would be called a square knot), but DON’T pull it tight yet.
Take the lose cord on the right and wrap around the inside of the knot again.
Now do the same on the left side, too. Your basically just wrapping the end in and around the knot.
Pull the knot tight.
Test the knot by pulling it and putting the ring on your finger before cutting off the ends. When you’re satisfied that your knot will hold, then trim the ends close to the knot.
Enjoy your new ring and make tons of them!!
