Beautiful Beaded Rings

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

These glamorous rings look so good, the recipients might not even guess they're homemade. Kids can customize them with their favorite beads, and an elastic band means they'll fit any finger (or toe!). They make great gifts for aunts, grandmoms, and friends.


  • Clear elastic beading cord
  • Scissors
  • Beads


Cut a piece of elastic. To make the beading easier, we started with a 10-inch length for an adult's ring finger and a 6-inch length for a child's pinkie.

Beautiful Beaded Rings - Step 2

Thread the bead or beads onto the elastic (for our larger ring, we used 18).

Using a helper's finger as a guide, knot together the ends. Finally, trim the ends and slide the knot into the middle of a bead so it's hidden from sight.
