FW-01-Title

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!

Materials
Some scrap fabric, 2”x18”
Metal bangle (thin)
A little sparkly button with a shank
Scissors
Hot glue gun or fabric glue

FW-02-Materials

Instructions
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.

FW-08-Step3

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!

FW-10-Step5

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!

  1. How adorable are these little bracelets! What a great way to use little scraps of leftover material or stash bust!
    Thanks Taryn!

  2. I just found this on one pretty thing. I was thinking about making our old shower rings into bracelets for my daughter, thanks for finishing the thought.
