I love this "transforming a shirt" project!

We have already made 4 cool things out of that good ol' button up shirt and there will be at least 4 more things.

But let's see what we have made already - a collar, shoe laces, a bandana and a bow! How fun!

So, let's get started with today's tutorial - a super cute (and easy and usual!) flower ring.

Here is what you'll need:

♥ a strap of that good ol' button up shirt fabric (about 12 inch long)
♥ ruffled lace
♥ fabric glue
♥ an old ring
♥ a piece of thicker fabric (denim or felt)
♥ fabric glue

1. fold the strap in half and roll about 1 inch, then add a little bit of glue and roll for another 1/2 inch.

2. Now you'll start twisting the fabric every 1 inch and adding glue at about every 1/2 - 1 inch.

2. Twist. Roll. Glue. Twist. Roll. Glue. And it should look like this.

5. Let the glue dry a bit (about 10 minutes) and sew the flower onto the ring.

You are done! Put it on your finger and look super cute!

I love it! And I’m glad you used thread insated of wire—the wire seems so counter-intuitive for a soft necklace, especially when you have kids. Now I guess I have to make one as well, it’s so cute!
