shrink plastic rings

I love shrink plastic! There are so many different ways to put it to use and one of my favorites is using it to make jewelry.

Creating simple statement rings from shrink plastic is an easy way to create one of a kind creative rings (that make perfect little gifts).

I start by drawing circles and then I draw and doodle inside of those circles. Keep in mind your shapes and designs will shrink a lot- like 50%.

I bake my designs in a regular oven for about 30 seconds at 350 degrees. The directions typically say to bake anywhere from 2-5 minutes but mine always seem to shrink up within 30 seconds.
Once I remove them from the oven I glue my disks (using a heavy duty glue) to ring backs.
