We’ve gathered ideas and inspirations for DIY bracelets that you are sure to love! These DIY bracelets are easy to make and everything you’ll ever need are found in most craft stores, sold at really good prices.
- Braided faux leather cord – this is perhaps the easiest, especially if you’ve mastered the art of braiding with your tresses. Just three strips of leather cord as thin or as thick as you like and braid them like you would your hair then attach to your choice of closure. You can also a 5-strand braid for a thicker bracelet or a fishtail braid for a more intricate one.
- Kidada-style wrap bracelets – this is pretty much like the braided leather cord but you will have to make a longer one that can go twice or thrice around your wrist. This is also strictly for the traditional 3-strand braid. Kidada wrap style bracelets also lets you use any charm that you want to incorporate.
- DIY glass beads bracelet – if you want something a little out of the ordinary, skip your everyday crafting materials and go for these: safety pins, glass beads and a pair of garter bands that fit your wrist. Open you safety pin, stack up the glass beads in the safety pin needle, attach to one garter band at the top and one at the bottom. Repeat until you have a full bracelet.
- Hexnut bracelets – you know the saying diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Well, maybe for some but not for the creative crafty girls! Hex nuts may not look glamorous on their own but when braided in on colorful cotton or leather cords, you’ll see why we’ve picked this diy bracelet inspiration. Plus, you’ll probably find a pack of shiny unopened ones in your garage just lying around.
Making your own DIY bracelets lets you customize them and suit your taste and style. They’re great for sprucing up your outfit or even as gifts to friends.
