Feathery Butterfly Whisperer Ring Tutorial

These happy little rings are delightfully fun to wear, and they make for supersweet grownup girlygirl favors & kid-approved giftlets, as well. I have this orangey monarch cutie for sale in my Etsy shop, and I plan to sell similar bunches at the Nature Center Artisan Faires, but I figured I'd share the How Tos, too, because in all honesty, they're superDUPEReasypeasy to whip up!

PLEASE REMEMBER: Tiny little fingers and tiny little mouths can sometimes add up to curious trouble. Smallish things (like these rings) can be tricksy business with kidlets who are still in that oral fixationy phase; so always trust your mommy instincts and use care, common sense, & supervision with younger children under threeish. In fact, this particular craft is best made by older kids and grownups. That having been said...

Here's What You Need:
Adjustable Ring Blanks
Glue Gun
Glue Gun Glue Sticks
Smallish Feathery Little Butterflies (available at craft and floral shops.)

Here's What You Do:
1. Adjust your ring to the desired wearable size, if you know what it is :)
2. Glue on your butterfly.
3. Let dry overnight.
4. Wear.
5. Amaze onlookers with your Disney Princessesque critter-taming abilities.
