Introduction: DIY Simple Beaded Stretch Rings
Here is the EASIEST Instructable on how to make the most absolutely gorgeous rings with VERY LITTLE supplies! You can use any bead(s) you like for the center of the ring. I personally LOVE the hollow beads because it really gives the ring a modern and edgy POP! Get creative and make it your own!
I will be entering this Instructable into the jewelry contest so give me your vote if you like what you see!
Stay tuned at the end of the Instructable for my YouTube video of the tutorial!
Step 1: Supplies
You will need
- hollow bead(s) of choice
- 11/0 seed beads
- stretch cord
- clear craft glue (optional)
Step 2: Cut and Knot Your Cord
Begin by cutting out a 5-6in piece of stretch cord.
Then triple knot your stretch cord to your hollow bead.
Make sure the excess cord is dangling OUT of the bead.
Step 3: Add Seed Beads
Begin adding on your seed beads to your excess cord. How many you add will depend on your ring size. If you add too little you will see the cord through the beads when you wear the ring. Be sure to add the right amount!
Test it on your desired finger-before tying to be sure it fits. Add/remove seed beads as needed.
Step 4: Knot Loose End
Triple knot the excess cord around the edge of the bead.
Make sure you pull it nice and tight so it does not come loose!
Step 5: Snip Off the Loose Ends
Now just snip off the excess cord on both ends and you're all done.
If you are worried that your cord may come loose feel free to add a dab of clear craft glue on both ends.
Wasn't that so easy and so cute???
