Turn an old skirt in to a bracelet.
Yes, I know, I have to stop making bracelets. It’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 can’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 you’ve shelled out about $5. (Why are all my projects $5? It’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 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.
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.
