I previously shared our activity on Thumbprinted Heart Pendants and Flower Pendants, this time, I want to share with you how we made a ring using the same procedure! Out of all the jewelry we made using plaster of paris, this has got to be my favorite!…well at least for now! :)

What you will need

  • 1 cup Plaster of Paris
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Plastic spoon
  • Old adjustable ring
  • Paint
  • Glue Gun
  • Circle shaped cookie cutter (or any round object)

Step 1: Mix the plaster of paris and the water together

Step 2: Mold the mixture into a round shape using the cookie cutter

I didn’t have any so I used this plastic egg instead

Step 3: Press both thumbs to form a heart

Step 4: Wait for it to dry then using a glue gun to stick the adjustable ring to the mold

Step 5: Paint

Step 6: Wait for everything to dry and it’s ready to wear!
