|Monogrammed Ring in 15 Minutes or Less|
If you consider yourself a crafty person, then you probably know what it is like to have an urge to get creative, yet not know where to find the time to squeeze in a little project. Last year, I joined Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage and Carolina @ 30 minute crafts for Craft Lightning -- crafts in 15 minutes or less. You can read that post here: Embellished Hair Accessories. Today, I am joining them for another round! Since accessories are easy to craft in 15 minutes or less, I decided to create a monogrammed ring for today's crafty quickie.

Regular Sharpie (optional)
|How to create a Monogrammed Ring in 15 minutes or less.|
Step 1 - Prepare Ring for Embellishment
I started with a pom ring that I bought at Michael's for less than a dollar. So, I had to remove the pom. As you can see on the right, the top of the ring had a metal lip around it with a cotton pad on top.
Step 2 - Glue a Large Jewel to the Ring
Because of the metal lip, I used wood glue to add my jewel because it would expand as needed to fill the inner area.

Step 3 - Monogram Ring with Sharpie Paint Pen
I discovered the Sharpie Paint Pen when I was standing in line at an office store. I knew I had to buy one and try it out. I decided to use silver for this project, but they come in a variety of colors.

Step 4 Option - Outline Monogrammed Initial with Sharpie
As an additional option, you can add a second layer to your monogram by outlining the initial with a regular fine tip Sharpie.
