This is a quick but stylish DIY!
My mom bought me these bracelets at a dollar store, (she is always looking for things she know I could transform or use for a DIY project and I love that!), and even though they were perfect to wear as they are, I wanted to add a rocker and edgier look with some studs.
Because they're made from plastic and not leather (remember, each one was only $1), the studs were so easy to insert, and in less than 30 minutes I have them on my wrists, I also made one with rhinestones and thread.
You'll need: Bracelets (the kind of a belt look-a-like), studs, pliers, flat screwdriver, rhinestone chain, strong glue like E 6000 and thread.
Insert the studs, one by one, trough the bracelet, use pliers or a flat screwdriver to wrap the stud edges.
For the rhinestone bracelet, add a line of strong glue in the middle of the bracelet, add the rhinestone chain. Using thread, make a knot and then start wrapping the thread around the rhinestones. Make a knot also when you finish them all, and insert the visible thread from the knot under the wrapping.
See? That was easy! I liked them better like this, what about you?
Love them but don't wanna make them? Here are my favorites to buy:
