Bracelets from Bottles

To start, I cut the middle out of a water bottle about an inch and a half wide.  I got some fabric and a piece of felt to wrap it.

 Cut the felt wider than the bracelet and hot glue it down.

Wrap the felt all the way around and glue it down.

Put hot glue on the inside of the bracelet and attatch the extra felt to the inside, wrapping it around the edges.



Get the fabric that you want to cover the bracelet with and wrap it the same way you did the felt.


After I wrapped the fabric, I attatched some fabric rosettes using the same technique as I did here.

I like how it turned out.   I did another one wrapped in yarn.
 Start by tying the yarn around the bracelet piece and keep wrapping.

 When you get finished wrapping it, you can leave it plain or add a pattern. I added a criss-cross pattern.


I like this one more than the other one!

  18. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.

  20. How did you attach the yarn once you wrapped it? Hot glue, knot, etc.? Great idea! Thanks!

    1. I tied the end piece to one of the loops wrapped around it. I didn't realize I left that out!
