Ric Rac Rose Ring

      I made this quick ring for Jaq as a "have fun in college" gift.  The angle of the camera made the ring a lot bigger than it is.  It is actually a sweet size for a lady's hand.

  Here is how I made it:

  1.     Cut 2 pieces of 15” long ric rac. 
  2. Braid the two pieces of ric rac together (in an up and down fashion) and clip along to secure the braid. 
  3.  Then, roll the braid first into a rose bud. (note that I pinned the rose bud just for photo shooting purposes.  you don't need to pin it.)
  4.   Continue rolling and secure the braid end with a dab of hot glue.
  5.   Tie a piece of skinny elastic to fit the ring finger and sewed to the bottom of the rose. Cut a piece of felt into a circle that's big enough to cover the bottom of the rose. Cut a small cross in the middle of the felt to let the elastic slip through. Then, pull a few outer layers down to create the petals.
  6.   Hot glued the felt to the bottom of the rose.  That's it!
  7. Side view of the ring.
