Resin is my most favorite way to be creative! I’m Carli from Hein and Dandy and recently I have been obsessing over UV resin because it is so quick to dry. Every day I take a walk with my dog and baby, we always walk by these beautiful wildflowers. Finally today I stopped and picked just a few small stems to make the perfect, simple, resin ring. Let me get you started on how to make your own resin ring with UV resin and a few small flowers.

It's the little things, like this single dandelion seed in a dainty resin ring.

Like I said, I got these flowers on a walk with my girls, but you can use any flowers! Maybe you have yours saved from your wedding, a baby shower, or a birthday! We will be using small flowers and leaves since the rings are so small.

You can use a tweezers or toothpick to get the very small petals or leaves out of the flower. Here I took a strand of small flowers and measured all the way around the ring. I also plucked a few dandelion seeds out for a very delicate ring.

Add a first very thin layer of resin on the bottom of the ring mold. This will help your petals stick and make sure that you have a smooth side. Carefully place your flowers into the first layer of resin, creating the design you want. Finally, fill remaining space with resin in the mold.

Once the mold is full to the brim with resin, put the mold under the UV light for a minute. So simple!

The best part about UV resin is that it dries right away! No need to wait 48 hours for your project to be done.

This part is so satisfying. Peel back the silicone mold to reveal your beautiful resin ring design.

These rings are great for everyday wear, a gift for a friend, maybe even a wedding band! The possibilities are endless.
