Easy DIY Cocktail Ring Magnet


When I was cleaning out my room to get packed up to go back to school (I leave in a week! Eek!!), I found some broken cocktail rings that I've had for, like, ever. Some I had tried to glue back together, and some I'd forgotten about. But that's what happens when you buy $5 rings, right (besides turning your finger green)? I decided that instead of throwing them away, I'd find some cute DIY to use them for. Finally, I came up with the idea of making them magnets for my dorm room refrigerator!

1. Get your ring top (does this thing have a name?)

2. Get your magnet (I used these from Wal-Mart)

3. Put them together! Ta-da! Now that was simple enough, right?! If you want some extra "stick" add some hot glue or E6000 glue to the ring before you put the magnet on.
P.S. I've been working on my hand-lettering…it's not the best but I'm making progress!
 See Sarah's Style has a GREAT tutorial!!

This was such a pretty ring! And now it's looking pretty on my fridge!

I'm still trying to decide what to do with the bow one, because the magnet didn't fit on it. Maybe making it a thumbtack for my cork board? Do you have any awesome ideas?! Comment below!

Like my monogrammed notecards?! Be on the lookout for a tutorial soon!

  1. Great idea! I love cocktail rings, but I have really tiny fingers. This would give me a reason to buy some cute ones that I can't wear!

    1. I have the same problem! So I usually buy every one I find in my size! I'm hoping the ones I don't wear as often conveniently "break" so I can make some more of these! ;)

    1. It can usually if it's not sterling silver (aka most cheap rings), but it's not harmful at all! It's just a pain and looks gross! And I've been breaking all of my rings that I don't wear anymore so I can do more of these!
