a pair of tiny wooden shoes rings
last somer i lay in the hospital and i was bored stiff. So i thought i can my little wooden shoes ( that some of my visitors had given me) paint and make a pair of rings to ware! A pair gives a crazy ?funny efffect.
And so i started. I had that time a anti boring pakket with me, but i had to stay there too long, 6 hole week.:-(
but i have maded in bed great projects so thats was fun.

The time is without drying time, and when i wear the rings everybody likes them and ask me where i bought them.duuh!
But the fun part was for me the most importent. I hope for you too!

  • How to make a toy ring. Typical Dutch Jewels - Step 1
    Step 1

    Paint the tiny blank wooden shoes with wood glue and let it dry
    The wood must by feel smooth, if its not smooth give them an other layer of wood glue. and let it dry. I choose always for 2 layers. Don't forget to glue the inside of the shoes!

  • Step 2

    I wanted flowers, but you can paint your own fav things. But before you started, decid
    what you wants.
    draw with the pencil on the wooden shoes where your painting must come.

  • Step 3

    paint this parts with white paint, and let it dry

  • Step 4

    paint the rest of the shoes with your fav colour. and let it dry. Maybay more layers with the same colour.

  • Step 5

    the inside of the shoes

    paint the inside in a colour you like, give it a other collor then the outside, because then you see that the shoes are realy shoes. And not some cast plastic shape.

  • Step 6

    with little colour dots you make the flowers. When they where dry you make with a finer brush smaller dots on the dots you had made. And so you go on. Till you have nice little flowers,
    With some dark paint you can make some shadow and with white paint you make the glimmers.
    Let this dry!

  • Step 7

    With varnish or glear nailpolish

  • Step 8

    You are almost finisht!

    now you make with the hot glue gun a dot on the shoe and the ring (not too much) on the flat side Fixeer the ring and shoe for 12 hours and do that with the other shoe too in the same time. Good luck. and have fun with your pair of wooden shoes
