I’ve to admit I am not that crazy about bracelets. While I love how they look I find them rather unpractical. But maybe just because I sit on the computer all day typing away.
But every once in a while I totally need bracelets. Like now! But then – of course – I don’t find any I like or they are too small.
So I came up with a fun idea on how to make me some. And of course I share!
What you need:
♥ Old Pringles package
♥ Fabric and leather scraps
♥ Textile glue
♥ Scissors & cutter
Getting them done is quite easy. First cut a ring off of the Pringles tube. Make sure it’s the same heights all throughout. I found this was the hardest part of the whole project.
Now cut yourself a piece of fabric with double the width and the length as according to the ring.
When done just glue the fabric on the outside of the tube. Make sure you place it in the middle of the ring.
When everything is dry fold in remaining fabric and glue tight. You might wanna make some cuts into the fabric s you can glue it without and folds and crinkles.
Depending on fabric you used and how neat you’ve been working you might want to cover up the seam with a ribbon or something fancy. I haven’t done so yet but might go ahead and do that later.
I found working with a woolknit was the easiest and gave the most professional look. Leather (my initial project) did not really knock me off my feet.
Now, let’s see your version!
