make your own wooden bracelet with lovely colours!
I really like wooden bracelets, especially when hand painted, but most of the time they are very expensive, so I decided to make them myself! It's very easy, the only difficult part can be drilling the holes (because the pins are very thin)

good luck!

  • Step 1

    1. you need about 9 wooden clothespins

  • Step 2

    2. take them apart (you can save the iron parts, these can be used for jewelry as well!)

  • Step 3

    3. take a saw and remove a part of the clothespins, so that they are more even

  • Step 4

    4. drill 2 small holes at the side of each clothespin (these holes are for the elastic thread)

  • Step 5

    5. take two pieces of elastic thread and staple the clothespins

  • Step 6

    6. now the most fun part, paint your bracelet! you can use a cocktail spike to make small polkadots, but you can also use a brush!
    another great idea is to make your own stamps (you can use an eraser or a potatoe, cut out a shape you like and use the stamp to design the bracelet)

  • Step 7

    7. when paint is dry; use clear varnish to make your bracelet a bit more waterproof

    and your done! enjoy and good luck!
