How to Make a Fake Nose Ring Out of a Paper clip
They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. And we completely agree with that. However, it is important to uphold and work on that beauty. One way to do that is through nose piercing. The process of nose piercing is not for the faint hearted. If you fear feeling pain then nose piercing is not for you. But you can make a fake nose ring out of a paper ring. The process is simple and we will show you how.
- Gather all the Materials You Need
Before you kick start the process of making a fake nose ring, gather all the materials you will need and place them on the working table. For this process, here are the materials;
- Paper clip
- Jewelry pliers or nose pliers.
- Pencil or pen
- Set Up The Paper Clip
Using the nose pliers or the jewelry pliers straighten the paper clip to begin the process of making a fake nose ring. We recommend that you use metal paper clips and not the coloured ones.
- Wrap the Paperclip Around a Pen
By the use of a nose plier wrap the paper clip around the pen to form a small round object. After you have formed a circle object using the paper clip slide it off the pen or pencil. Take your time to ensure that the paperclip adapts the right shape.
Otherwise, you might end up doing zero work and your nose ring will keep falling. People around you may realize that your nose ring is not real. It is for that reason we stress the fact that you should take time to mould your ring.
- Ensure the paper ring takes the right size
Use your jewerly pliers to make the ends meet. At least ensure that your hoop looks more of a circle. Do not be hard on yourself if the ends do not meet perfectly.
- Completing the ends of the clip
Both ends of the paper clip should be made in such a way that it won’t hurt you when you put the ring on your nose. Use your pliers to bend the ends of the paper clip. Do not be tempted to bend in ¼ of it.
After bending the end of clip, you should see an ‘O’ or ‘U’. This makes the nose ring safe for putting in your nose. The end that forms the O or U shape should be the one to slide inside the nose. With its modification, it will be hard for the paperclip to scratch your nose.
You can also put duct tape at the ends of the paperclip. This ensures that both ends do not hurt you when you put on the fake nose ring.
- Slide in the Nose Ring to Your Nose
Gently put the homemade nose ring inside your nose and squeeze so that it fits you perfectly. At least ensure that your nose ring can stay in place without removing it. You must understand that this is not a real piercing and hence you should take the nose ring off when undertaking a rigorous activity.
Tips: There are people who may argue that one can use staplers instead of paperclips. But do not subscribe to that idea. Staplers may pierce your nose and cause an infection. Again, they are too small to look real anyway.
How to Make a Fake Nose Ring with a Nose Stud
Another way to fake a nose ring is through making a nose stud. The process is easy and straightforward.
- Gather all the supplies
The process of making a stud will require you to visit a craft store to buy a number of items. These items include;
- Your favorite gem
- Fake eyelash glue (Avoid any type of glue that will be harmful to your skin)
- Initiate The Process
Once you have chosen your favorite gem, it is time to get down to business. Place the gem and glue above the towel. Let the mirror in front of you. The work of the towel is to prevent any eyelash glue linkages from getting to the surface. It also catches the gem if you accidentally drop it.
- Application of the Nose Stud
On your chosen gem, apply a dab of the fake eyelash glue on it. Avoid applying too much glue. This is because it inhibits the drying process. Leave the gem for at least 20minutes for glue to set. Once 20 minutes are over, place the stud on your nose. Hold it on your nose without applying much force on it until you are sure the glue has dried (it will only take 30 seconds for the glue to dry).
- Look at Yourself on the Mirror
Using the mirror in front of you, ensure that you have placed the stud at the right place and do not shy off from showing your nose stud to your friends.
