It's been a crazy busy couple of days & I've been somewhat checked out from 'computer world'.
Sorry bout that :/
But I've gotten lots done which is always good, right?
Before I get down to a fun (& super easy) DIY today,
I wanted to ask for YOUR help!!
I'm gearing up to put together a Furniture 101 type series and I need to know what YOU want to know...anything furniture!
What questions do you have about finding, painting, re-purposing, etc?
I'd love for you to email me, comment or hit me up on Facebook to give me your input.
I definitely want to address the thing you most want to know!!
Now onto the fun stuff :)
Remember my first ever jewelry post I shared a couple weeks ago??
Well, I've been at it again!
I love easy jewelry projects because I get to make them customized with the colors/shape that I'm dying to wear most.
Not to mention that it's wayyyy cheaper!!
So...they're kinda addicting. Watch out.
That said...check these guys out:
Aren't they fun??
As always, Michaels always comes through in their dollar bins and I was able to snag a few chunky bracelets there.
But any chunky bracelet you have will work.
If you like the shape, you're good to go!
Here's what I grabbed:
Seriously, it's that easy.
A ball of yarn & a chunky bracelet of your choice.
Oh, and scissors.
Unless you can just rip bare-handed through the yarn :)
Here's what my 1$ bracelet was like:
I just snipped through the threads and made it bare.
And it was as easy as taking a new color of yarn & wrapping, wrapping, wrapping.
I found it a lot easier to take your big ball of yarn and wrap a bunch around your fingers to make a smaller ball that would pass through the bracelet opening.
That way it goes a little faster.
And, of course you won't just want to stop at one.
I ended up with three.
I just rummaged through my old stash and came up with some crazy colored ones that I was never going to wear again.
Don't they look soooo much better now??
Betcha can't guess which is my favorite!!
Well, actually, you probably can't.
Cuz I can't really either.
I've worn all of them a million times since I've made them.
Plus they're so fun to stack together and wear!
I love this baker twine-esque yarn I had.
It made a fun stripe-y pattern :)
Once you wind the yarn around enough to cover the bracelet, snip the yarn & tie a tiny knot on the inside of the bracelet.
Or put a tiny dot of hot glue to hold it in place.
For the black and white one,
I had two little balls of yarn and just tied off after each stripe was as big as I wanted it to be.
I overlapped a little bit over each color to make sure there wouldn't be any gaps.
And just saying,
but these are super fun to make while watching your fave tv show.
Pretty Little Liars anyone??
What do you think?
Need some chunky, textured bracelets in your accessories?
What colors would you use??
Hope you guys have a great weekend!!
