Bring On The Bling Valentine Ring {Craft Tutorial}

A super fun Valentine’s Day ring made with Hershey’s Kisses and pipe cleaners.

Bring on the Bling Valentine Ring

I just had to share this adorable little craft project with you!  We just got our February issue of Disney Family Fun (LOVE this magazine!), saw these cuties and knew my kids would get a kick out of them.  I love a project you can pull together in seconds :)  All you need is Hershey’s Kisses and pipe cleaners.  We used some metallic pipe cleaners too because let’s face it, platinum is better!  The red kisses are rubies, the pink are pink sapphires and then we’ve got the silver kisses that are clearly diamonds!  Reece told me that he felt like “royalty”.  Where he picked up that word I’m not sure but I’m glad he is feeling so majestic ;)

Lay out two pipe cleaners perpendicular to each other.  Twist them around each other in the center creating an “X”.

Place the Hershey’s kiss on the center of the “X”.

Pull up the pipe cleaners to the tip of the Hershey’s Kiss.  Twist the pipe cleaners tightly at the top.  (You can see that I left the paper in this kiss – we removed it on the other ones because it detracted from the bling effect.)

Separate the pipe cleaners so there is two on each side and pull them away from the Hershey’s Kiss.

Bend the ends to form a ring.  I found that wrapping the pipe cleaners around the tip of my finger was the easiest way to accomplish this.

Twist the ends around at the top of the ring.  Trim of any excess or find a place to tuck the ends in.  Remember that the ends of the pipe cleaners can be sharp – so make sure they aren’t anywhere that can hurt a little finger.

This is what the finished product will look like.  Family Fun suggested cutting out tags and adding them to the rings.  We never got to that point because Reece and Bryce just wanted to wear them!

Here’s some action shots with the hand models I hired (they work for candy!):

  29. So cute! I haven’t seen anything like this yet! Love it!

  30. Isn’t that the cutest thing?!! My daughter will love this!

  31. I’m loving this- especially the silver- but I never met a bling I didn’t like….I am wondering if you think the would work with a class of kindergartners as part of the Valentine party. I have a 13 year (as well as the kindergartner) and am a Pediatric nurse practitioner but I have learned over the last 13 years that I always OVERestimate the craft talent of the 21st century American child. My daughter had over-the- top birthday parties with several crafts each time and maybe because I have always been crafty and I THINK the craft is easy enough, I get all the supplies together and get excited and then end up making all of the party goers projects.

    • I think it’s totally doable! It might work best to have someone up front demonstrating the steps and having them follow along at the same time. My son is in kindergarten and he was able to do them after watching me. You sound a lot like my mom – we always had the BEST parties growing up!

    • thanks…we are going to make them. I’m just practicing and they are cute and fun. Definitely need to head to Hobby Lobby to get some silver stems.

  32. Very cute and fun! I love the kiss in the middle – I am featuring you tonight!!

  33. So cute! What a fun idea =-)

    Hi, Trish. My daughter came home from school with one of these. Her whole class made them at her Valentine’s party! Great idea!

  71. I personally blog also and I’m composing a little something very similar to this particular posting,
    “Bring On The Bling Valentine Ring made with Hershey’s Kisses”. Would you care in cases where I actuallyapply a lot of of your concepts? Thanks for your time -Ericka
