My Version of Kate's Ring - A Pipe Cleaner Ring!

Today I made Kate's ring out of pipe cleaners - yes pipe cleaners. Pipe cleaner cocktail rings are all the rage!

Here are the instructions in case you want to make some!

You will need three silver pipe cleaners and 1/2 of a sparkling blue pipe cleaner.

Twist the silver pipe cleaners in the middle three or four times - this should resemble kitten whiskers.

Then twist the pipe cleaner around your finger to make a "ring" shape. Keeping the "kitten whiskers" on top.

Now spread out the top twisted area and start curling in the tops.

This is the ring from a different angle.

Slowly curl in each of the top pipe cleaners.

Once all of the silver top layers are curled in - cut a blue pipe cleaner in half and place it through the middle of the ring. Adhere the blue pipe cleaner to the ring below and twist in to make the sapphire.

I made a bunch to give to my tennis team at our Friday match and for Noelle to give her friends on Friday.
