Easy Monogrammed Ring in 15 Minutes or Less

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.


Some of the supplies needed for making a monogrammed ring.

Supplies Needed

Glue
Ring
Jewel
Sharpie Paint Pen
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.

I love personalized items! 

Hopefully this shows you that you can get those creative juices flowing, even if you only have just a few minutes to craft.  I hope you will go check out all of the other Craft Lightning posts over at The Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts.
