DIY Wooden Teething Ring

In my littlest’s Easter basket this year, I kept it really simple and only included things that I knew he’d love.  So I added some cereal puffs, a few board books, a sippy cup, and a sweet DIY Wooden Teething Ring that I made myself!  It was so simple and took just a few minutes to put together!

You’ll need just a few things to make one {or two} for your little guy or gal…

I didn’t use a pattern, to make the fabric part of the teething ring.  In all honesty I just kinda eyeballed it, cut and sewed.  Easy as 1-2-3!

I cut a 2.5 inch wide piece of the fabric and it ended up being approximately 10 inches long.  On either end, I cut a sort of rounded point though, that looked something like this…

For each teething ring, I cut two pieces of the same fabric and then sewed them together, right sides facing each other.  I left a 2 inch gap to turn the fabric and then closed it with a top stitch around the entire piece.

Once it was finished, I ironed the fabric so I had nice, crisp lines and tied it onto the teething ring like so…

They have been a HUGE hit with my little guy so far since he’s smack in the middle of growing all his little baby teeth.

And I love that I can just toss the fabric portion into the washer and give the wooden part a good scrub with warm soapy water to get it clean.

    These look lovely!

    I do something similar, but machine washable rather than wooden. I make a cotton ring and stuff tightly with cotton stuffing, then make grabby ears much as you have here, for new baby gifting. I also made a few chains of cotton rings this way, which my 15 month old twins have really loved playing with and chewing on.

    I have done wooden teether ring versions too, for which I treat the wood with lanolin first.
