DIY {How To Make A Midi Ring}

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Today I am going to show you how to make these adorable midi rings, or as some call them, knuckle rings.

The one I am showing you to do has a cute little pattern to it and it makes it easier to adjust to your finger.
So let's get started!

Your going to need wire, any color, I used 16 gauge but I think next time will go a tad smaller just to make it easier to work with.
Needle nose pliers and cutters (this one has both).
Then something round to wrap the wire.
I used a nail polish bottle.

You want to cut your wire slightly bigger than your finger, because you want the excess to add the twist to it.

Wrap the wire around the tube of your choice.
This will help make a perfect circle.

You then want to put it on the finger of your choice to adjust it it size.
If you need to cut a bit of wire do so.

This is where it gets a tad tricky.
Take the ends of the wire and with pliers,twist up to form a "U" then take the pliers to clamp the "U" closed.
Do the same on the other raw end of the wire.

Next take the coiled pieces and move in an upward position that it will lay flush with your finger.
Turn the ring around and do the same on that side.
You want to be sure it falls flat against your finger.

Lastly put the ring on your finger and do any adjusting that's necessary.
And you are done!
Super easy and addicting to do!
You can also take wire, wrap it around the tube, and have the ends line up with each other to make a complete circle.
Add a dab of glue (so the ends don't poke you) and you have a simple band.
That's it!
If you have any questions on how to do this let me know.
Don't have time to make them?

I'm selling them for a small price!


  1. This looks like a DIY I might actually attempt! Thank you for doing this!


  2. Just a little tip you might want to try--file the ends of the wire after clipping it (you can even use a nail file!) to give a smoother, more comfortable finish. No jabby burrs on the ends! :-)

  3. Wow this is so pretty...thanks for sharing this!
