DIY Denim Cocktail Ring

You like to upcycle old worn out blue jeans, maybe?  You would enjoy making a sweet little denim cocktail ring in five minutes or less, maybe?

Okay, then.  Start with a swatch of denim and any cute scrapbooking brad.

Cut two simple flowers and a finger-sized strap.  Poke holes in them with something pointy.

Push the scrapbooking brad through all the layers...

Fold the prongs flat.

You made a ring!!!!!

Add metal findings or faux flower petals to mix it up.

So many ways you could incorporate these into your crafting life.  Fun for a sleepover project...make several as extremely hip teacher gifts...start now on stockpiling stocking stuffers - to name just three ideas!  These definitely belong in my 'extreme cheapskating' category.  From one leg of jeans and a single box of brads, you could create dozens of rings.

My.  Kinda.  Craft.


  1. I loved this when it was the mystery thing. I happen to have some wrapping paper that looks like bandanas and i think the denim ring would make a great bow for that paper! Thanks for sharing your awesomeness!

  2. Love these sweet denim flower rings with the mirror holder center! What can't you use those thingies for? Couldn't help but notice the writing below the today in the Central Valley. Yep, that's right!

  3. What a great idea Mich! I LOVE how you made the ring part too - ingenious!

  4. Love it Mich, and since I'm always thinking home decor, these would be fun napkin rings! thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!

  5. Love love love!
