Today we’re going to make a big, beaded bobble ring!

I don’t wear too many rings, probably because my fingers are pretty fat. But when cheap costume jewelry rings became all the rage, including those expandable rings, my collection grew by tons. Not only would I pick up one or two myself but my nephews with a few bucks to spend would pick me up rings that looked like owls, purple roses and little pink crystal flowers.

I myself have made a few rings because the bases are easy to come by and really inexpensive. Plus, it’s a super easy craft project. So let’s get on this and make up a really pretty beaded bobble ring!

For this project you will need:

Your ring base will look something like this. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby because I liked the larger size of the pad with more loops.

Run your bead onto your head pin.

Trim the pin so that you have just over 1/4 inch past the top of the bead.

Curl the pin using your round nose pliers.

And then just make up a whole mess of them.

Open the loop you created and attach to one of the loops on the ring base. I found it’s easier to work from the center out.

Keep adding beads to fill the ring up. I wanted my super full so I placed two beads per loop.

It starts to get more difficult as you add so you’ll need to work on this particular project when you’re feeling a bit patient.

Because if you’re not, you might turn your loop closed too hard and then this will happen. I. Was. So. Ticked.

But I picked it back up the next day, pulled all the beads off and started on a new ring base.

And now I have a big pile of bling to wear on my finger! FYI, I don’t wear actually this on my ring finger. Though I guess I could ’cause I’m kind of married to arts and crafts : )

Will you be making some beaded bobble rings? I sure hope so!
