Last night I had one of those nights where you just lie there, incessantly awake. For hours. I couldn’t blame the baby, or the snorer that lay next to me, just my own chattering brain. I kept thinking about house jobs that needed to be done and ideas of things I could make.
I have tons of ring bases sitting in a box, waiting to be turned into something. I think I’d like to attempt something with air dry clay, but first I thought I’d try making a ring with an old colouring pencil. So I did that – and it was super simple.
- pencil crayon
- small saw
- ring base
Take your saw (I used a junior hacksaw) and cut off about 8mm from the end of the crayon. Repeat this process until you have 7 chunks of crayon – they don’t need to be neat or even at this stage.
Once the glue has set, you then need to sand the crayons down with a piece of sandpaper. Do this until the surface of the ring is completely smooth and repeat on the reverse.
Glue the crayons to your ring base.
All done. Nice new lovely ring for anyone feeling a bit arty.
