repurpose yarn and wire: bracelets

By  | 

yarn and wire graphic bracelet tutorialEasy Peasy.

Wire and Yarn are the tools you need to create these yarn bracelets!

cut some wire.

shape it how you want. dab some hot glue on the end for the yarn to grab.

then just wrap. keep it going the same direction on each wrap around.
find 2 large beads that have larger holes.


fill those bead holes with hot glue and shove them on your ends.
ta-da! you got yourself some cute bracelets!

The wire was the stuff IKEA sells to be used with their curtains.
Using yarn with varying colors on the same skein is a super quick and easy way to get varying colors!
A few bracelets in similar colors stacked up is super cute and trendy.

Til Next time!

      I am about 2 hours from IKEA and make a good trip about once a year for little things. It’s nice. But, that wire you can find at Menards or something else…it’s not too crazy weird.
