DIY Fabric Bracelet

diy

So I went to find my VDay outfit last week. While I was browsing the jewelry section I became overwhelmed by all the fabric jewelry, I hadn’t really noticed how popular it was becoming! I had a few bracelets in my hand at the register, but at the last minute I put them back, I knew I could make the same thing… I did however purchase the fabric heart earrings. I love them! (Rue21 for the record)

A few days ago I sat down and upcycled a few of Adelyn Dollar Store bangles, one of which I wore on Valentines Day.

For supplies you just need

    • some strips of your favorite fabric, preferably 1/2 inch wide and around … oh 40” long? I just winged it and cut off any extra, there really is no right or wrong width or length. The red one I made (pictured above) I used 2 strips because the piece of fabric I had were not long enough.
    • old bangles or plastic ones you pick up from the dollar store.
    • hot glue gun
    • scissors to trim

The pictures pretty much say it all… it really is super easy. Just glue down one end of your strip, wrap it all the way around (pulling tight) , and glue the end, trimming off any excess:

glue

wrap

glue2

trim

done

The fabric will fray as you wear them, but it just adds character, more of a vintage feel, right.

Whatchya think?? Like… dislike?
