This DIY project comes to you from Pasadena's Arroyo Seco Festival. The festival culture is definitely changing. No longer is there just music, but now it kind of reminds me of a fair. There are products being sold, the food is better (with a lot of choices), you can visit activity tents, see art installations, and kids, even babies are in attendance!
I spent the first few hours of the festival by myself. I was able to move at my own pace, and just enjoy the moment. During that time I stumbled upon an activity tent where festival attendees could make pouches, headbands, and different types of jewelry. I decided to make myself some rings.
This is probably one of my quickest and least thought out diy projects, but I loved the results!
1. Pick an object for your ring (any rock, crystal, bead, shell, etc. be creative!)
2. Place the object/stone on top of the ring pad
3. (optional) Glue stone to ring pad
4. Wrap wire around stone and ring pad for security
5. Cut excess wire and tuck or wrap leftover wire behind stone
I enjoyed my rings the rest of the festival and got to take them home as a small souvenir
Patty came and joined me after work. As much as I love alone time it is always better to experience life with loved ones. I'm glad we could share this California day together. Soon these will be rare and few.
