I am totally in love with upcycled jewelry and the idea of using up scraps and leftover embellishments to make something really fabulous. I made these DIY Bracelets in about 5 minutes with some fabric scraps I had and some simple metal bangles I found at a craft store. I love their bohemian feel and they mix perfectly with other bracelets.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Fabric scraps
- Fabric glue
Cut a long strip of your fabric about 1 inch wide and about 18 inches.
Wrap the end of your fabric strip around one side of your bangle and secure it with glue.
Wrap your fabric around the bangle.
When you get to the other end, secure it with glue.
Rip your fabric strip into 2, 3, or 4 strips, depending on how wide your fabric is and how well it rips.
Take each strip and tie it around the opposite side of your bangle, secure with glue.
Trim your ends.
For these bracelets you can mix up all different colors and patterns of fabric to make a really cool stack of bangles. With the holidays right around the corner they would also make great gifts for your besties! Have fun making! xoxo Cathy
