Materials:

  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Plastic water bottle (smooth side preferred but select a water bottle to fit your wrist size)
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors
  • Blue low mask tape
  • Fabric (torn into 1/2″ – 3/4″ strips and ironed flat)
  • Felt flowers (I cut my flowers using a die cutting machine)
  • Hole punch (to cut flower centers)

Instructions:

  1. I select different widths of masking tape and apply to the outside of the water bottle to use as a pattern line when cutting the bracelets.

  2. Use a craft knife to cut between the tape lines then use scissors to cut a clean edge on the bracelets.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a pretty clever and creative idea! So many ways to,change up the look from silk flowers, to buttons, sequins, etc. I made a,similar bracelet using tiny yo-yos with pretty button centers! I could also see putting some thin batting on top and wrapping with satin or cross grain ribbon for a puffy fabric look! Would be especially cool if the ribbon or fabric matched your outfit!

I always injoy your craft idias, this is one that my grandaughters and her friends will realy injoy

Muy linda idea, muchas gracias :)
