Colorful Yarn Bracelets

Today’s post is another DIY jewelry tutorial.  This yarn bracelet is a simple, quick way to introduce a pop of color to your wardrobe without spending big bucks to do so.

I got sucked in to one of those ABC Family Harry Potter movie marathons yesterday. If you’re a HP fan, you know what I’m talking about. I barely moved from the couch all day. Finally, around hour 8 of my extremely unproductive day, I sat down at the craft table. If you couldn’t tell, this particular bracelet is decorated with the colors of the Gryffindor House. Inspiration can come in the strangest forms.

Materials List:

Plastic Bracelet (I got a pack from the $1 bin in the kids party section)

Mod Podge

Small Paint Brush

Yarn

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:  Prepare your materials and pick the colors you want to use for your bracelet

Step 3:  Place the end of your yarn in the dab of Mod Podge to start the process of wrapping the yarn

Step 4:  Wrap the yarn around the bracelet making sure to keep the circles tight to avoid visible spaces – Keep placing dabs of Mod Podge on the inside to keep everything in place – Cut the string when you’re ready to end that color

Step 5:  Repeat Step 4 with a new color

Step 6:  Keep repeating Steps 4 and 5 keeping the spacing in mind on the colors – Measure out where you want each color to end and mark with a marker if it makes it easier

Step 7:  Finish the loop and use the Mod Podge to touch up any loose threads.

You can get really creative with the colors and patterns. I made another one with some green, pink, and black thread to look like a watermelon. Summer is here and this would be a great project for the kids!
