Yes, I know, I have to stop making bracelets. Itâ€™s an addiction. Is there a support group for this? But I see these fun, colorful wrap bracelets everywhere, and they are sooo easy that even this craft-challenged mom canâ€™t resist.
Get thee to Goodwill and buy a crazy heinous skirt for $3. 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 youâ€™ve shelled out about $5. (Why are all my projects $5? Itâ€™s not a Lincoln conspiracy, I promise.)
Cut a piece about 4 inches wide. Thinner is okay (not too much or it will just look sad), but you canâ€™t go much thicker because your hex nuts wonâ€™t fit. Length can vary â€“ the longer it is the more times it will wrap on your wrist. Also, the ragged edges are cool so donâ€™t stress about hemming or fraying.
Tie a knot in one end and twist the entire length.
Feed your hex nuts on, spacing them however you want. Donâ€™t glue them on â€“ 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.
Tie the two ends together in a knot so it forms a circle.
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, Iâ€™m a bracelet person. What types of jewelry do you favor?
