DIY wire-button rings

Sorry it took me so long to get this post up!! But here it is, better late than never.

Jewelry pliers 
Wire cutters
Cutesy buttons {two or more}
Jewelry wire {I used a thinner one, you can use whatever}

 {pliers and wire cutters}
 {cutesy buttons}

1. Cut a 6-7 inch piece of wire and measure your finger. 
{This can be done multiple ways.. either use an actual ring sizer or do what I did down below}

2. Start threading the buttons through the wire. 

3. Bend both pieces down so that they're flat {like the piece on the left} 

4. Once you've reached this point, you can do pretty much whatever you want. With this pink one, I twisted the wire in circles then clipped off the excess. 

With the purple and green ones I took extra wire off to the side and wrapped it around the ring band 

That's basically it! Super easy, right? 
Have fun with it and be creative!
