Burlap Jeweled Bracelet

Who doesn't love burlap and vintage jewels!  Why not combine two of my  favorite  things into a gorgeous bracelet?  I post this on This Silly Girl's Life o a couple months ago and now I thought I'd share it with you myself!  I think it turned out just beautifully and I'm so excited to wear it!!
Burlap Jeweled Bracelet

I've had this gorgeous vintage broach laying around and I knew I had to come up with something to do with it.  I decided to go with a bracelet and I'm so happy I did!  To start, I folding the sides of my burlap ribbon in,to match the width of the broach. To secure it, I used some fabric glue.  Next, I had to get the length right to fit perfectly around my wrist.  After getting the length, I slid the buckle on and secured the ends of the buckle with a little more glue. For the raw ends of the burlap ribbon, I bought a large metal claw type closure for the ends.  Find yourself some gorgeous vintage jewels and make one for yourself!

 Find yourself a vintage broach and give it a try.  It's so simple and you'll have yourself a beautiful addition to your jewelry collection!

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!!

Fabric Flower Bracelet

As you might have noticed, since I've mastered fabric flowers I've been attaching them to everything.  So I decided to make some bracelets.  All it is, is a plain chain link bracelet, a fabric flower, and like many of my projects, a vintage jewel.  Since I started making and wearing these bracelets, everybody always asks where I got them.  They've definitely become my go to gift, when I'm in need.
