Wrap-around Charm Bracelet

I’m totally obsessed with “arm-parties” at the moment, I can’t seem to stop stacking more and more bracelets, bangles and cuffs around my wrists – honestly, it’s a fantastically fashionable way of working your biceps! This DIY is a great addition to the arm party, easy to make, extremely versatile and not too heavy (so you can keep stacking ’em and stacking ’em!)

What you need:

  • Black embroidery thread
  • White embroidery thread
  • 2 different silver charms
  • 1 silver charm with two rings attached
  • 3 jump rings
  • 1 lobster clasp
  • Scissors
  • Superglue

How to:

  1. Measure your wrist and cut 4 lengths of black and 2 lengths of white each piece 4 times the circumference of your wrist.
  2. Thread 2 lengths of black and 1 length of white thread through one of the rings of the charm. Tie a secure knot.

  3. Braid the threads into a zipper bracelet – exactly like this previous Zipper Friendship Bracelet DIY.

  4. Repeat on the other side with the other 3 threads (2 black and 1 white).

  5. Using a jump ring, attach one of the charms to one side of the bracelet.

  6. Attach a lobster clasp to one end of the bracelet using a jump ring.

  7. Attach the other charm to the other end of the bracelet using the remaining jump rings.

  8. Trim the ends of each side of the bracelet and squeeze a few drops of superglue on each knot to secure.

Et voila! So simple to make it’s impossible to stop at one and I for sure will not be stopping at just one! I’ve come across a bunch of gorgeous little charms that I’m either going to add to this bracelet or make more wrap-around charm bracelets – can’t wait! It’s such a great addition to my wrists and to the arm party, what’s not to love!?

Happy DIYing!
