I saw this pin idea last winter and right away I knew I wanted to make one to put in my room. I got out my jewelry wire, my jar of buttons, and a big vanilla jar candle. I chose buttons of all sizes, shapes, and colors for my ring. It wasn't the easiest project since it was hard to judge how far apart to put the buttons so that at the end there wasn't a big gap or not enough space and also figuring out how to finish off the wire so that it didn't come apart. I wrapped the wire through the button holes a time or two that they were more secure but this isn't necessary. The last button, I looped the wire around a few more times than the others and made sure both ends were in the back side of the button. Then I threaded a jewelry crimp through both ends of the wire and squeezed it tight. Once the extra wire was snipped you could hardly see a difference.
For the button baby shower, I made button rings for mini votive candles that were decorations and also party favors. After doing a dozen of these babies, I got the hang of it and the process was much quicker.
