DIY Fabric Bracelets

Marni Woven Bangle and Ted Rossi Bngles

{Marni Woven Bangle and Ted Rossi bangles images from ShopStyle...while these won't break the bank...you can make similar pieces from things already in your closet}


what you'll need for fabric bracelets + bangles


Cut Sock + Roll Sock + Stitch Sock


Wrap Fabric + Overlap + Stitch


Bracelets On Rocks


Fabric Bracelets + Bangles on Yellow Flowers - cross process

These literally took a few minutes a piece. The only thing I would do differently, next time would be to use my own socks and not my husbands, for a smaller fit. {He has so many missing pairs of socks it was a quick grab ;) } I think it would be fun to sew some beads or sequins on for an added touch as well. If you have any old clothes that you no longer wear, but you love the print, those would make for great wraps. It's a very simple and easy project. For thinner bracelets, you could use old tights as well.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! :)

  25. Who would pay that much for that? I have a Loui wallet, Prada bag, and various other expensive accessories but that much for this crappy bracelet doesn't make sense in any way.
