Do you still want to know what it is? M'kay, but I'm telling you now: it's easy.
Here's what I made:
What you see is a matching cocktail ring and hair barrette. Made out of buttons. Here's what you need to make one yourself:
Two fancy buttons, ring/bobby pin findings, hot glue
Mind blowing I know. Remember when I made my button monogram? Well, I bought some fancy buttons with the intent to use them as accents on that piece, but these just didn't seem to fit, even though I loved them so.
I caressed these buttons, kissed them and whispered sweet nothings into their ear. I so wanted to use them but just didn't know how.
Then, inspiration hit. I would buy a ready made ring and bobby pin from Hobby Lobby. I would hot glue the buttons to them. I would live happily ever after with my new sweet set of accessories.
You know what comes next.
I applied copious amounts of hot glue to the ring and inserted the button.
Note: Don't put the ring on while the hot glue is still hot. Metal is a conductor for heat and you will burn the fire out of your pretty little finger.
I did the same with the bobby pin.
Note: Don't put the bobby pin in your hair while the glue is still hot. No, your hair doesn't have feelings, but your scalp does and when the wet hot glue adheres to your hair, you will feel it upon removal of the bobby pin.
I told you they were easy. Look how excited Toph was when he heard the news of my sweet little set:
