Milk Carton Bling Rings

You can recycle your milk carton tabs into finger bling for your little princess!

I put a thick layer of regular Elmer's glue onto the top of the tab and sprinkled little seed beads onto the glue.  You can use a toothpick to move and arrange the beads in the glue.  Then, I set the tabs into a bed of rice to help hold them upright while they dried.
Once dried, both Jillian and I were so excited that she tried them on before the final ModPodge step.  As she was taking them off the dried glue and beads just slipped right off the tab!

So, I applied gentle pressure to remove/slide the glue and beads from the other rings {as you can see in the picture below}.  Then I used my hot glue gun to really adhere the beads/glue onto the milk carton tab.

Next, I used ModPodge over the beads and again set them in the bed of rice to dry.

{I used regular satin ModPodge but you can buy shiney and sparkle ModPodge too, which might make the beads really pop}

Once the ModPodge was dried the Milk Carton Bling Rings were all ready to be loved by our little princess!
