How to Use a Clip‐On Earring to Make a Fake Belly Button Ring

Two Methods:Cleaning and PreparingPutting It On

Belly button rings are really stylish but kind of risky. What if it gets very infected? Or maybe you just really want one but your parents won't let you get one? Read on for a trick to making a fake one!

Method 1
Cleaning and Preparing

  1. 1
    Wash your hands. Pick up the cotton swab and run it under water. Then, go in and around your belly button. Dry the bully button off. This is to remove grime.
  2. 2
    Pick the clip on earring you like. Take another cotton swab and run the cotton swab under water a little bit. Then, gently run it around the clip on to take some of the grime off. Dry off the "belly button ring". You don't want it to get rusty.

Method 2
Putting It On

  1. 1
    Take the "ring". Place the part where the charm hangs from right above the belly button top.

    Take the ring off for 5-10 minutes to rest the skin. At night, take off the ring.

  • Try to put on the ring standing up, if you do it while sitting down, you will grab more skin making it painful to stand up.
