Fabric Wrap Bracelet Tutorial

>> Friday, February 12, 2010

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!


Gather some scarp fabric, 1 metal bangle (thin) scissors and a little sparkly button with a shank.


Cut a 2 inch by 18 inch strip of fabric

Now to start wrapping your bangle leave about 2 inches as your starter the neatly wrap the fabric around the bangle

Keep wrapping the bangle giving a little "tug" ever once in a while to tighten the wrap...

Tie the remaining fabric in a secure double knot and even up the edges...

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)...


Add your sparkly button and hold in place for a few seconds...and YOU'RE DONE!


Play around with different fabrics, you can make them a bit longer 2 inches by 26 inches) to tie a bow at the end too.  Be creative, it's a sweet thing!

LOVE it!!! So cute and super easy! Thanks for sharing.

I have been looking for blingy/vintage like buttons like the one you used. I can't seem to find them anywhere though. Where did you find yours?
