How to Make Simple DIY Bracelets

I hope you guys all had a good week! For once, mine was relatively eventful. I got my first part time job which I think basically qualifies me as a mature, responsible adult. Also, not to contradict the last point, but I went to see ‘Finding Dory’ at the cinema and had a terrifying dental appointment (obviously not simultaneously). Honestly, I can’t believe I actually payed someone to stab my teeth for half and hour with sharp metal objects that tasted faintly of washing up liquid.

Anyways, I’ll stop rambling and get into this DIY. As usual, it’s really simple as my artistic skill set is pretty limited despite the fact that I brag about my ‘artsy-ness’ in my  blog title. Really that was me being presumptions, I just like gluing random stuff together -which is basically what this entire tutorial is about. That being said, I was surprisingly pleased with the end result. These bracelets are actually really pretty! The whole wrapping-the-thread-around-the-bangle process is a bit time consuming, but I managed to make three of them and I have the patience of a 5 year old, so apparently it’s not that bad.

What I love about making your own jewelry is that you can really personalise it. Let me know in the comments below what pendants and colours you’d use for your bracelets, and why. And don’t forget to like and share this post if you enjoyed reading it!

Tutorial

 

Step 1: Using the glue gun, place a small amount of glue onto the rim of your bangle and quickly wrap the thread around it.

 

Step 2 Continue to do this until the entire bangle is covered in thread. Make sure to only use small amounts of glue at a time, or the glue will dry before you have a chance to  wrap all the thread around it.

Step 3 Attach the pendant to the clasp, and then attach the clasp to the bangle.

      Thanks 🙂 Yeah, it’s a really great craft for all ages (and if a glue gun’s too dangerous, you can just use regular glue)!
