DIY Zip Tie Bohemian Bracelets! VaVoom!

Good Sunday Evening Everyone,

Well, if you have ever visited my Pinterest boards, you know that I love Bohemian ANYTHING! The colors.....the clothes.....the furniture.....I'm an "ole hippie", what do you expect! I have seen so many things online, from clothes to jewelry, that have touched my bohemian soul, but, of course, for the most part, I can not afford to buy what I like. So, I resort to learning how to make it instead, and recently, I had seen these zip tie bracelets and just didn't think they would turn out like the pictures, but they did! Easy Peazy!
You will need the large zip ties, your jewelry making tools, strips of cloth, jewelry wire and scotch tape. Yes, scotch tape!
I took a zip tie and made a circle to measure the size of my wrist, but then just added a "smidgen"and then cut off the end of the zip tie and taped the circle together. I then took about a 24 inch strip of fabric and made a knot with one end around the zip tie circle and started wrapping the fabric around it. Now, with that long of a piece I had enough to circle around twice. I then tied the know again and cut off the ends. I then took my jewelry wire and wound it around the middle where the tape had been and wrapped twice. I then started adding my beads, where I would wrap each bead onto the bracelet, and Viola...it is "beautimus"....lol! The variations with beads and material are infinite, and what beautiful and inexpensive way to make bracelets:














I absolutely love these and plan on making a bunch more, and also, I do believe that the next craft show I attend, that these will sell quickly. Enjoy and give it a shot at making these bohemian style bracelets!

Blessings,
Deborah

    1. Crystal, I love them! I was scrolling on Pinterest one day looking for ideas, and saw them, and thought, there is just no way they can look that good. But, I started making them and I just can't stop! Thanks again!
