Tie Bracelet

 I featured these bracelets on Titi Crafty back in June and Wanted to share them with you myself.  Can you even believe this gorgeous bracelet came from a men's tie!!  While flipping through a magazine in line at the grocery store the other day, I came across these awesome bracelets. I loved them so much and knew I had to give one a try.  There's a world of old ties out there that nobody wants, think of all the bracelets we could make? 
Tie Bracelet
 You know you want one for yourself!


I knew my husband wasn't about to let me chop his ties up so I headed to Salvation Army.  Ties are only $.99!  Go to any thrift store (ties are always pretty cheap).  I found a couple that I thought would work out great for my bracelets.  

Even if you are not a sewer, these are such a simple project to make.  Start out by wrapping the narrow end of the tie around your wrist to get the approximate length that you'll need.  Add about 1/4 of an inch extra, and cut your tie.  Using fabric glue, take your raw edge and glue it under.  You could always sew it, but I chose glue since I'm not much of a sewer.  Using sticky velcro, place one on each end of the bracelet.  Make sure it's a good size before applying your velcro for good.  When your bracelet is complete, add a jewel, a large button, buckle, or maybe a fabric flower for a focal point?  

What a gorgeous new bracelet for only 99 cents!  What a deal!!
These tie bracelets would make such a unique gift!!  Maybe try a few for yourself and a few for gifts.  I know any girl would love one!!  Have fun and go save some ties!!
