In our home we have an art recycle box to recycle things we may use for art one day. I love having this box because it gets the kids to create in new ways with new materials.

One day, my daughter dug up a few milk caps and we layered them with buttons and gems to create some beautiful costume rings for her and her friends.

How We Did It

Milk Cap Rings

Here's a tip for using tacky glue without having to squeeze each drop out for your child. Use an empty yogurt container to hold the bottle upside down while the kids are crafting.

Milk Cap Rings

Emma took a lot of time choosing the perfect buttons and gems to layer on her rings. She really enjoyed styling her very own ring exactly the way she wanted.

We used the tacky glue right on the flat side of the cap and got to work layering the gems on the rings.This was a perfect craft for her to do while her little brother was napping.

The color and texture of the rings are so fun to watch come together. Emma started making some for friends and she was excited to choose just what she thought each friend would like.
Milk Cap Rings
Waiting until they are completely dry is important, otherwise your gems will slide off. It was hard for Emma to wait, but once dry she could not get enough of these beautiful new rings. She of course went right into pretend grown-up mode and her name became Penelope. I think that name fit her new fashion perfectly.

This would work equally well putting pipe cleaners through the button holes, layering the trim on the button, and leaving the (shortened) ends of the pipecleaners as adjustable rings.
