How do you like this starry little ring?
I bet you know the secret ingredient, don't you? If you are a child or child-adjacent, you probably have some of these somewhere in your house:
Let's get crafty with them! Here comes my SUPER SIMPLE GLOW STAR RING TUTORIAL.
1. Make a hole in each star. This plastic is not too tough - you can pierce it with just about anything sharp. A thumbtack. An awl. Your wit.
2. Tie a knot in the center of a piece of elastic beading cord, then pull both ends through the stars.
3. String some little beads, until it's the right size for the desired finger. Tie a knot and trim the ends. If you like, you can dot the knot with glue.
Yay! It's a cute ring!
Look, ma, it really glows!
Wouldn't these be fun as party favors? Or for an afterparty, post Prom? But hang on - these can be fun for a grownup lady, too. Here's an example of a necklace you might wear even when not attending a rave...
So. Tiptoe into the bedroom of the nearest minor. Denude the ceiling. And start crafting with the stars!
I like the necklace version...I am strange but I've never quite understood the point of statement rings...ReplyDelete
Although prom with a glow-in-the-dark statement ring might be fun.
hee hee excellent title (and bracketed comment). they would be pointy especially immediately on the eye-ball. very cool layered starry look, almost floral, like a moonflower!ReplyDelete
So I wonder if you could heat gun those stars to make them melt a bit to cup them like flowers?!? Since I have neither heat gun nor pointy glow in the dark stars run with the thought if you would like....ReplyDelete
Great idea, I keep finding these stars in my daughter's room because they either fall off or she and her friends peel them off everything. Now I have a use for them instead of throwing them in a cup that they're collecting in.ReplyDelete
great idea..and the possibilities are endless..clips, earrings, bracelets..and the occasions could range from candle night dinners I know a little too much) to HalloweenReplyDelete
OOOH this is a good one...and I happened to have these stars on hand.. Hmm ... what about putting those stars on a hairband or kids spectacles ... must do tonight..sure the kids going to have fun!! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
woww nice idea as always, I love the necklace, I would use it everyday:-)ReplyDelete
NICE one! Btw, the necklace is gorgeous, but I might just have to make some star- related kids stuff. Wait on... headband, wire, stars- instant alien! I bet they'd love that! :D And a bracelet instead of a ring, because if I know the punks properly, they'll just trash a ring within 3 seconds. But the idea is now firmly lodged in the back of my silly old head.ReplyDelete
What a cool idea, goona take a few off the ceiling and try to make a ring too:) thanks for the inspiration:)ReplyDelete
so cute & creative..amazing Mich :)ReplyDelete
That looks fun! I wonder if I could man it up a bit for my son who LOVES to play with glow-in-the-dark stars!ReplyDelete
Oh glow in the dark rings - I love it! Perfect for party favours - I'm going to save this one up for halloween!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a great week!

brilliant as usual! thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday!ReplyDelete
Dang! Wish I hadn't thrown out the stars when my kids outgrew them! Best glow in the dark ring I've seen!ReplyDelete
I know, I know!ReplyDelete
It's a thing-a-magig for a whatcha-macallit.
I even pulled hubby in to guess.
This is a super fun craft idea! I'm so excited, I'm going to buy some and have my kiddos make them for the Fourth of July! Yay!!!!ReplyDelete
