Hi! I’m Stephanie, a mother of two with a DIY addiction! I blog about stylish and crafty adventures at Henry Happened. I love to create fun accessories and I’m especially fond of making bracelets (like this one and this one).
So, when Krista asked me to guest post, I thought, let’s make a bracelet!. I see these fun, colorful wrap bracelets everywhere, and they are sooo easy that even this craft-challenged mom can’t resist.
And seriously J. Crew, $36 for this?
Step 1: Get thee to Goodwill and buy a crazy heinous skirt for $3 (or use something from the closet). Then stop by the hardware store for a dozen or so brass hex nuts at 15 cents each. (You might want to pick up a few extra to make this bracelet.)
And you’ve shelled out about $5.
Step 2: Cut a piece about 4 inches wide. Thinner is okay (not too much or it will just look sad), but you can’t go much thicker because your hex nuts won’t fit. Length can vary – the longer it is the more times it will wrap on your wrist. Also, the ragged edges are cool so don’t stress about hemming or fraying.
Step 3: Tie a knot in one end and twist the entire length.
Step 4: Feed your hex nuts on, spacing them however you want. Don’t glue them on – the width of the fabric will be enough to keep them in place. Plus then you can adjust them after you put the bracelet on.
Step 5: Tie the two ends together in a knot so it forms a circle.
Step 6: Wind it around your wrist! You can move the hex nuts around for a better visual.
I love the chance to wear a bold color. So, obviously, I’m a bracelet person. What types of jewelry do you favor? Thank you for letting me visit here today!! I hope you will stop by Henry Happened and say hi!
