Resize Your Rings Using Hot Glue

“Happiness is a ring on your finger.” -Unknown

Because of the placement of the diamonds on my engagement ring, the ring can not be sized down enough to fit my finger. I have tried many different ring sizers but they are all impractical. The little plastic ones slip off and the dipsize takes a million coats and forever to dry. Not only that but you have to redo it often. I don’t know about you but I do not have the time for that. So I found a solution. Hot  glue! (do this at your own risk) I have only tried this on gold. Personally I have not had any damage to my ring. Just make sure the glue only gets on the band and not the diamonds.

  1. Clean your ring well with ring cleaner.
  2. Put the hot glue onto a piece of paper.
  3. Dip your ring into the glue.
  4. Once the band of the ring is covered, lift the ring and let the excess drip off.
  5. Let your ring dry for 5 minutes.
  6. Try the ring on for size, if it is still too big, repeat the steps until it fits.

Your ring is now ready to wear again. Usually this lasts a few weeks to a month. I like how there are no edges like the plastic ring sizers. Hope this little diy helps you 🙂

How to Secure a Hat That Will Not Stay On.

“How a hat makes you feel is what a hat is all about” -Philip Treacy

Do you have a hat that will not stay on? I Do. Every time I look up or someone tries to give me a hug, off goes the hat. So I found a way to keep it secure even through a tornado. So First things first…you will need…
-A Hat
-Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
-Ribbon (any size will do) Try to Match the Color to the Hat.
-Scissors
-Bobby Pins

Once you have all the supplies take a piece of ribbon about 3 inches.

Then cut that in half so that you have two pieces that are an inch and a half long.

Next you will add a pea sized amount of hot glue to the end of the ribbon.

Fold the ribbon in half, and attach it to the opposite end.

You should now have a loop. Like this.

Now add another pea sized dab of glue to the opposite end of the loop. This is the part you are going to attach to the inner brim of the hat.

Attach and hold firmly until the glue dries.

This is how it should look now.

Do the same for both sides…

The last step is to insert you favorite bobby pin into the loop on each side.

All you have to do now is secure the bobby pins to your hair and do not worry about your hat falling off anymore. Bring on the wind 🙂
