Wire rings have been popular for some time now. They’ve been worn in all seasons. Why? Because dainty is in now! Some of these rings can be really pricy, but we know that not everyone has money for that! So, we have 5 different DIY wire nail styles. The wire costs like $5 at your local craft store or eBay, and the pliers you can probably find in your boyfriend, husbands, or dad’s toolbox. If anything, you can always use your fingers if you have enough patience! 10+ rings for $5? Hell yeah!

DIY Wire Metal Rings_E
Bow Wire Ring

  1. Cut approximately 8 inches of wire. You may have some extra left, but it’s better to have too much than too little.
  2. Wrap the wire around a cylinder object about the same as your ring size. Think markers, railings, rolled up bundles of paper, etc
  3. Wrap the wire around the cylinder, all the way around, creating a tight circle. Feel free to double wrap the wire, for a thicker ring. Just make sure you start off with 2x more wire.
  4. Create a loop with each end towards the middle. Make sure you’re also holding the band in place so it doesn’t loosen up. It’s also recommended to use round nose pliers if you want the bow to be small.
  5. Take one end of the loop and wrap it around the center of the two loops. Flatten the design after to ensure the shape lays flat and neat on your finger
  6. Snip off excess and file down ends. This is to prevent the wire from potentially stabbing you. You can always make tiny loops at the end instead of filing it down if you’d like.

 

Knot Wire Ring

  1. Cut approximately 4 inches of wire. This is about enough for a size 5. You may have some extra left, but it’s better to have too much than too little.
  2. Bring the two ends together and create a simple, basic knot. Keep the knot loose to start off, making it easier to shrink. Also, the thinner the wire you use, the easier this will be.
  3. Tug on both ends to pull the knot smaller. Feel free to use pliers to help pull the wire through and shrink the knot. It also helps to push the two sides of the knot together with your fingers while pulling.
  4. Flatten the design. Use pliers to just squeeze the knot flat to make it lie gracefully on your finger.
  5. Wrap excess wire around cylinder. Adjust excess wires so it is aligned with the design, horizontally. Wrap it tight, overlapping each other.
  6. Cut off excess. Depending on how adjustable you want this ring to be, cut off any extra wire sticking out.
  7. File down ends. This is to prevent the wire from potentially stabbing you. You can always make tiny loops at the end instead of filing it down if you’d like. This is also where you make any last minute fixes, like curling the ends in more.

 

Heart Wire Ring

  1. Cut approximately 6 inches of wire. This is about enough for a size 5. You may have some extra left, but it’s better to have too much than too little.
  2. Create a V shape in the middle of the wire. Use pliers to make it sharper shaped
  3. Curve both ends in, around the top. Use the thicker end of the round nose pliers (if you have any) to make it a rounder shape. The wires should cross in the middle.
  4. Flatten the design. Use pliers to just squeeze the knot flat to make it lie gracefully on your finger.
  5. Wrap excess wire around cylinder. Adjust excess wires so it is aligned with the design, horizontally. Wrap it tight, overlapping each other.
  6. Cut off excess. Depending on how adjustable you want this ring to be, cut off any extra wire sticking out.
  7. File down ends. This is to prevent the wire from potentially stabbing you. You can always make tiny loops at the end instead of filing it down if you’d like. This is also where you make any last minute fixes, like curling the ends in more.

 

Love Wire Ring

  1. Cut approximately 6-7 inches of wire. This is about enough for a size 5. You may have some extra left, but it’s better to have too much than too little.
  2. Shape wire based on a cursive “love” design. Use pliers, as the writing will be small. Think of this process as making many loops. the only difference is for each letter, the loops are different sizes that you just have to manipulate.
  3. Flatten the design. Use pliers to just squeeze the knot flat to make it lie gracefully on your finger.
  4. Wrap excess wire around cylinder. Adjust excess wires so it is aligned with the design, horizontally. Wrap it tight, overlapping each other.

  2. Create a small loop on each end of the wire, towards the middle. The first loop will be around the top of the wire, the second one will be around the bottom of the wire.
  3. Flatten the design. Use pliers to just squeeze the knot flat to make it lie gracefully on your finger.
