Is there a way to easily use music from Google Play Music as ringtones on my phone?

Download the song.. Stock ringtone picker should display it.. –  Sachin Shekhar Apr 2 '12 at 17:54
This is probably covered by How to set MP3 ringtone in Android (Nexus S), which also refers to Google Music specifically. –  eldarerathis Apr 2 '12 at 17:57
You can only set songs that are actually on your sdcard... music from the cloud on google music are saved in a database, so you can't access them without using root and special apps (or command line sqllite if you're that savvy) –  Drake Clarris May 3 '12 at 15:34
It's surprising that not more people are interested in this question. –  moose Mar 17 '13 at 20:46

Download the song and use something like Audacity to edit it. Save to your ringtones directory on your phone. Nothing else out of the ordinary needs to be done.

You shouldn't even need to edit it with Audacity unless you want to cut it to a specific portion of the song or loop it. There are a bunch of ways to set an unmodified MP3 as a ringtone (as covered in a previous question). –  eldarerathis Apr 3 '12 at 13:36

download the song on another device

then use makeownringtone.com to cut the ringtone and download it

then move the ringtone to dropbox

then on the phone export the ringtone from dropbox to the Ringtones folder
