What You Need:

How to Make it:

2

Place the end of your paint brush at the center and gently wrap the wire around the paint brush.

3

 

Let both sides cross a tiny bit below the brush to create the look of the breast cancer ribbon.

5

About 1/4 of an inch below the overlap and bend the wire at a 90 degree angle to the center of the ribbon.

6

Repeat with the other side.

7

Sand the edges of the wire so they’re dull and don’t hurt when they poke you.

8

Paint the ribbon with at least 2 layers of the Martha Stewart Craft Paint. Flip over and paint the other side.

9

10

Once the paint is dry (I let mine dry overnight), Place your ribbon onto the mandrel or cylinder and wrap the rest of the wire around the cylinder behind your ribbon.

Slide the ring off the cylinder and let it cure at room temperature for at least a week before wearing. To ensure no chips in the paint, 21 days is recommended.

Though Breast Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner, this ribbon ring can be made to support any cause. To find the color for your cause, check out this list here.
