This ring is super easy to make! With a mere paper clip and scrap of ribbon, you can have a fun new ring:)

Total Time: Under 20 minutes


  • 1 standard sized paper clip
  • tiny amount of ribbon
  • glue gun
  • round needle nosed pliers
  • stapler
  • mandrel or other round object
  • long jewelry pliers


  1. Unfold your paper clip. Using a mandrel or other round object, wrap your paper clip around the bottom, ends even.
  2. Remove from mandrel, curl ends with your pliers.
  3. Using pliers, flatten your coils.

  5. Depending on the size bow you want, cut a 3 1/2" length of ribbon. Fold in half, ends overlapping slightly, staple.
  6. Now cut a 1 1/2" length of ribbon. Wrap this around the center of your bow, glue the underside together.

  8. Squeeze your coils close, glue your finished bow to your prepared paper clip.
  9. Leave as is, or you could choose to glue a small button or gem to the top.:)

Good idea. You could attach a multitude of different things to this ring instead of a bow. you could also thread your ribbon through the little circles and tie a bow straight onto it
