Today we debut a new weekly feature: a roundup of crafty finds from throughout the web, united by a common theme. Our theme this week: Bracelets. Let’s dive in . . .
A simple 3-step process is outlined for a fashionable mens’ bracelet made from an old necktie — or ties you may happen upon at a thrift store. Find a nice-looking tie that’s too short for your neck? BOOM: make a bracelet out of it.
Important note: The blog writer, Erlend, helpfully points out that “neckties with stains” can find new life as bracelets.
Lauren Lowe of The Burlap Bag overs this excellent way to practice your smooth curves (you’ll understand after reading). I’m already excited to start testing the bendiness of all forks I encounter this weekend…
Excellent project taking less than an hour, using leather strips (with even a link on where to get ‘em cheap & nice).
This one’s kind-of-amazing, I think, substituting Puff Paint for beads to make an authentic-looking Native American bead bracelet (those always look like they took eons to make). Simple, helpful & encouraging tips here (“Move Slowly”, & “Let Dry”).
Love the name of this site. Honestly: WTF? . . . This may be the most involved of the five we have here, but only by a slight margin. You still get a nice choice of styles resulting from one basic component, a curved noodle tube bead. Then, the choice is yours. . .
Let us know if any of these helped make your weekend feel fuller; we’ll see you back here in 7 days for another Roundup.
