Faking a Cocktail Ring!
Sunday, August 23, 2009
I looked at hsn.com at all their cocktail rings - so pretty - but couldn't really spare the money for one.
Today, working on a tip from the thrifyfun site, and inspired by the stretchy bead craft rings I have seen in stores - I REALLY TOTALLY FAKED ACOCKTAIL RING!!
- You need: metallic elastic cord in a loop @ 3-4 inches wide (I save mine from gifts)
- clip earring
- some surgical tape
You twist the metallic cord around a finger until it is snug - then clip on a clip earring, the clip of which you have already wrapped with clear surgical tape (for a better grip & to protect my skin against irritation from base metal). Trim tape if necessary.
VOILA! THAT'S IT. The earring is just the right size for a flashy cocktail ring -
Go ahead - raid the drawers of your mothers, aunts and grandmothers & you will have rings galore.

I missed your tips and treasures. I am so glad you are back from vacation. I went to Florida recently and shopped around like you.
Bargin Hunter Girls are also thrifty - We use cheap perfume as Mace!

Flattered that you really missed my hints, etc. Yup - cheap perfume could be Mace - also Hair Spray! And looking for bargains while away from home is part of vacation fun, too!
