Guest Post: Fabric Wrap Bracelet Tutorial
Today’s project is brought to you by the creative force behind Poppy Chic Designs, Taryn Sisco. Make sure to check out her super fun items in her etsy shop and on her blog.
My first tutorial is here! These cute little bracelets are super sweet and fun to make too. Whenever I wear one people always ask where I got it… well now you know!
Some scrap fabric, 2”x18”
Metal bangle (thin)
A little sparkly button with a shank
Hot glue gun or fabric glue
Step 1: To start wrapping your bangle, leave about 2 inches as your starter. Then neatly wrap the fabric around the bangle.
Step 2: Keep wrapping the bangle, giving a little “tug” every once in a while to tighten the wrap.
Step 3: Tie the remaining fabric in a secure double knot and even up the edges.
Step 4: Use a hot glue gun or fabric glue to put a drop of glue into the crevice of the knot (this is where the shank of the button will push into).
Step 5: Add your sparkly button and hold it in place for a few seconds… and YOU’RE DONE!
Tips: Play around with different fabrics. You can make them a bit longer (2”x26”) to tie a bow at the end too. Be creative, it’s a sweet thing!
