A Cheap and Easy Craft

I woke up this morning feeling very crafty! Though, being the broke college student that I am, I’m on a strick crafting budget (cause let’s face it, crafting isn’t ALWAY a cheap hobby). So I was ecstatic when I logged on to Craftgawker and found this simple and easy craft. Not only am I obsessed with making rings, but I had all the supplies needed and I can easily add my own twist to this DIY!

How did I do this? I’ll show you!

What you need:
– Two Pennies
– One Quarter
– A Ring Base (From my crafting experience those are best purchased in bulk through here)
– Acrylic Paint in Any Colors
– E6000
– Clear Acrylic Coating, I used high gloss but that’s a preference (Not Pictured)

First I painted the coins. I painted the quarter one color, since it will be the base, and then painted the pennies a different color. It took about an hour for them to dry and I soon realized how easy it was to scrap the paint from the coins. So I coated each one in clear acrylic coating.

After the coating dried I used my E6000 glue to secure the pennies on the quarter where I wanted them to be. Next I glued the quarter to my ring base and allowed that to dry.

Voila! You have a cheap, easy, and awesome ring. The best part is that this ring looks so great no one will know how easy it is to make, and you’ll be the envy of all your friends!
