DIY Rope Bracelets

I'll tell you a little secret of why i'm making yet another item out of cotton rope. I have sooo much of it because I used this same rope for the handles of THESE bags, and I have a huge spool of it sitting in my basement. I don't know about you but I love to use up supplies that I already have in the craft closet, sometimes its a challenge to think of a project for that fabric you purchased 4 years ago, but I get even more satisfaction out of a project when I don't go out and purchase anything new. Basically i'm a craft hoarder and I need help. :)


DIY Rope Bracelets

These bangles are so easy, you'll be able to make them in 20 minute or less. They look great with the nautical knot rope necklace or just by themselves. All your going to do is cut them to the length you want, mine were 7” long and using a glue gun, hot glue the ends together. Once that is dry (just a few minutes) put a dab of glue to the side of the “seam” and attach a strand of either waxed thin rope, string, or thin suede and wrap it around, hiding the seam and then glueing it at the end to secure it.  Viola, you're done and you have some awesome new bangles to sport.

If you make them snap a photo and tag me on instagram, i love to see your projects! @handmadeintheheartland
