Easy Glass Clover Ring Tutorial

Today I am sharing a super easy clover ring I made with a green sharpie and a glass gem from the Dollar Store.  Since you can get a large bag of these gems from the Dollar Store, this would make a nice frugal gift for a girls St. Patties party.  You can even use an old birthday card for the card stock, like I did.
Here is all you need:

Clear Glass Gems 
Green Permanent Marker
Thick Card Stock Any Lighter Color You Like 
Scissors or a 1 inch circle scrap-booking punch 
Jewelers Glue
Ring Blank

Directions:

Cut out your card stock the size of your gem, ours was 1 inch round.  You want a very thick card stock to reduce bleed through of glue. You could draw the clover on your card stock, but I went ahead and drew it on the back side  (flat side) of the gem. I thought this might help avoid bleeding of the ink from the glue on the paper.  Then glue your ring blank to the back of your card stock.  Then apply a generous layer of glue to the top of your card stock, and glue the flat side (the side with the clover on it) of your gem down.  You will want to let it dry for 72 hours before you wear it. 


Hope you all have fun plans for St. Patrick's Day coming up.

Please share your St. Patties post and more at our 
Anything Goes Linky every Fri-Monday at Bacon Time.

I think I am all greened out for this year. My hubby just got back late Friday and got called out of town on a mission yesterday. I am house sitting our new family member all by myself. She is so smart, amazing, how much I already love her.

    2. I'm not a huge fan of St Patricks Day crafts to begin with, but I did a few this year :) I ended up posting it anyway cause I needed to post, I've been absent from my blog all weekend :( I'm so glad that she is part of the family already, that's great. She sounds like a sweet girl! It's nice to have a dog around the house :)
