more shrinky rings

I’ve been making more shrink plastic rings, and I’ve refined my method so I can produce these:

I really like how they’ve turned out. And there’s also the added bonus of watching the long strips of shrinkydinks wiggle about as they shrink 🙂

Would anyone be interested in a tutorial on how to make these? Let me know in the comments… UPDATE: Thanks for all the requests! Here’s the tutorial 🙂

    I love your blog! Your shrinky rings are my favorite. I followed your tutorial but I’m still trying to figure out how you got yours to connect. Help please! I’m making Christmas gifts

    • June said

      Haley, they don’t connect – there’ll always be a small gap, which you wear on the inside of the ring. If you look at the 2nd photo from the bottom in the tutorial, you’ll see the gap 🙂

  3. Hi, there!
    Just wanted to thank you for your shrinky-dink ring tute—I run a summer art program for teen girls, and all 250 of them are obsessed with shrink plastic! This will make me exceedingly popular today…

    Thanks to everyone who requested a tutorial! I’ve updated the post to include the tutorial link, but it seems most people aren’t seeing that, so here’s the link again:

    Thanks for sharing your ideas with others *hug*

    Fantastic! I’ve done a couple of shrinky tutorials myself – but I never thought of rings. How do you get it to stick?

  11. Blue said

    I would -love- to see a tutorial on those!

    I use shrink plastic quite a bit, but have yet to attempt to make anything that isn’t completely flat!

    Thanks, June!

    I would also like to put in a vote for a tutorial – those rings are lovely, and would make such pretty presents. Any chance you can reveal your shrinky dink plastic source?

  28. Emma Mill said

    Hi June – I love your rings – the pattern looks so delicate and groovy at the same time as a ring. Would love a tutorial. Em from One Hour Craft.

  29. Crystal said

    Wow, I love your rings! I havnt used shrinky dink plastic since I was a kid. Remember you could get liscence character kits? lol…ah memories.

    I would love to know how you made these. Is there a trusty heat gun involved? I love when I get to bring mine out!

  30. Tracie said

  34. futuregirl said

    These are *beautiful* and so delicate! I would totally love to see how you do it.

  35. iHanna said

    They are very beautiful, are they strong? I haven’t used that material so I would think rings would break easily? Nice blog you have!

  36. Wow love this =)
    This ring is absolutely gorgeous.
    I am interested in a tutorial and I guess I won’t be the only one.

    PS : I am reading your blog since a while & I am totally in love with your crochet creations. Thanks a bunch for sharing these.
