How to Make Cute Rings

Cute rings are the best treat for yourself or a fantastic gift for your special person. You can buy cute simple rings from our collection, or if you are a creative person and want to play around with jewelry, then you can make your own cute rings.

Check out our ideas for DIY rings. 

Leather tasseled rings

The first DIY ring on our list is a wire ring with leather tassels. It is a really unique design that gives a boho chic vibe. Moreover, it looks great if it stands alone on your hand or is accompanied by other rings.

All you need is an artistic brass wire to spin and shape around your finger. Then, you can make or purchase leather charms and attach them to the wire.

This design is easy to make. The good news is that the wire rings are easily adjustable if your finger gets thinner or thicker.

Folded wire rings

You can use the same wire ring to create your own folded wire ring. You can twist the ring around your finger as many times as you want and create an interesting shape at the end. 

This technique is perfect for larger rings. Since this ring is simple, without stones, you can easily combine it with many outfits and wear it on many occasions.

Simple elegant rings

If you are a person who loves the minimalist style, then these elegant rings are for you. 

All you need is a thin wire gauge which you can twist once around your finger. Then, you can rotate the excess wire onto the front and create a rose or other small figure, and that’s it.

These dainty rings are made for stacking, but that is totally up to you.

Wire heart rings

This ring is so cute, and it is the right choice for someone who loves the boho style or for a minimalism lover. Plus, it is super easy to make it. You need only a 20 gauge wire, clippers, and jewelry pliers. 

First, you should get pliers with clippers, needle-nose pliers, and flat-nose pliers. Start by making a wire heart. Then, wrap a wire around a cylindrical object to make the ring. Use the round nose pliers to secure the wire heart on top of the ring. 

Wired rings with stones

If you are patient and good with crafts, you can make this stone and wire-wrapped ring. These types of rings look like they are store-bought, but you will spend much less.

It is recommended to use a mandrel to make a wired ring with a stone. Mandrels are cheap tools used to size rings. You can also make it without it if you put in more effort.

First, you need to trim an 11-inch section of wire and then slide the ends of the wire through the stone. The next step is to wrap the excess wire on both sides of the stone around the ring mandrel. Wrap the wires under the layers and tighten them with the pliers.

Elastic rings

Elastic rings are easy to make and a great arts and crafts activity with your children. 

All you need is the following:

  • A little crystal (you can buy it or find it in your jewelry box)
  • 12-18 round metal beads of 3 millimeters (the number of beads depends on your ring size)
  • Stretch elastic thread
  • Pliers
  • Scissors
  • 2 crimp covers 
  • 2 crimp tubes size 2

In short, you should first thread the beads onto the elastic and put a crimp tube on both sides. Then, thread both ends of the elastic through the two holes of the stone. Once you take the elastic through the crimp tubes, you are done making the ring. Just double-check if the size is right.

The making process is fun and easy; check it out.

Double-bead wire rings

These double-bead wire rings are so elegant they look like you just bought them from the jewelry store. The making process is fast and easy.

You should thread your beads on both ends of the wire’s excess and then roll them back and around.

Check out this tutorial for instructions on how to make the duo-bead wire ring.

Custom message wire rings

These rings are so cute because you can engrave your own message. This technique requires a little bit of experience in ring-making.

Before you start, make sure you have the following:

  • Dremel Micro 8050 tool
  • Alphabet metal stamps
  • Black permanent marker
  • Rectangle copper stamping blank
  • Metal stamping hammer
  • Texture hammer
  • Polishing cloth
  • Ring mandrel
  • Paper and scissors

Before you cut your copper blank, it is good to take a ribbon piece and wrap it around your finger. Then, cut the blank as per the measurements of the ribbon.

Take the Dremel Micro cutter to cut the blank. Then round the edges of it. The next step is to print the words on the blank. Use the permanent marker to make the words darker. Finally, wrap the blank around the mandrel to get the right size.

Movie-inspired rings

If you are a movie fan, you can make your favorite movie characters ring. For instance, you can make a Harry Potter ring in less than an hour without spending much.

All you need is a little wire and patience. Twist the wire around and above your finger as the image you want to create.

Mini beaded boho rings

Making this ring is easy, especially if you have a plain ready-made ring for the base. You can purchase plain base rings and keep them for when you decide to get creative.

Make the bead arch and place it on the top of the ring. You can add as many beads as you want, monochrome or colorful, depending on your taste.

These beaded boho rings are very cheap, quick to make, yet unique accessories.

Is it cheaper to make your own ring?
