40+ Crafty Bracelets & Bangles
Posted By Tipnut On July 20, 2011 @ 12:25 pm In Crafty Ideas | 6 Comments
Here are over three dozen different ways you can make bracelets using all kinds of crafty materials and supplies (such as scraps of fabric, leather, decorative trim, beads, repurposed items). Various methods are used (all with free tutorials and instructions) so there should be something here for everyone. If you’re interested in making beaded wire jewelry, I have that free project sheet here . Have fun!
Ribbon & Bead Braid : Make a bracelet or necklace with this technique using a few yards of ribbon and a couple dozen gold beads.
Fabric : Fabric strips with a tattered edge are wrapped and glued around thick cotton cord, ends glued together.
Leather Bow : Just a few supplies needed to make this project, a piece of leather, super glue, thread and a snap button.
Beaded : Beads are strung through stretchy jewelry cord, ends tied in a knot and secured with a dab of glue.
