OWIMO Designs demonstrates how to make rings from buttons. A very quick and simple upcycling project!
I tend to use E6000 glue for my jewellery projects, I wouldn’t recommend white glue for adding the embellishments. It doesn’t provide a permanent bond, meaning over time you will lose the embellishments.
White glue is water soluble, every time you wash your hands with the ring on it would wear away at the bond.
The materials and equipment that you’ll need to make your button rings are shown below.
- Old buttons
- Ring settings / bases
- 2 stage epoxy or E6000 glue
- Embellishments e.g. rhinestones
- Toothpick – can be useful for removing excess glue!
Did You Know?
It is estimated that more than 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away every year.
Most of the waste produced in the UK ends up in landfill sites, which poses a threat to local ground water supplies. Every time it rains, water drains through all the rubbish and picks up chemical and hazardous materials. This includes chemicals used in clothing and textiles such as dyes and bleaches.
