I love sharing projects with you that are so easy, they feel like cheating – and today is one of those. I’ve seen a lot of ribbon wrap bracelets around lately and took the plunge myself – spending all of about two minutes putting this one together! Seriously, it took me longer to haul out my supplies than it did to actually make this. This is definitely one of the fastest jewelry projects that I have ever shared. It takes 2 knots, minimal supplies, and no special tools – and check it out:
Goody Beads sent me these supplies to see what design I’d come up with, so I’ll leave links to the products in case you want to make your own! This bracelet is earthy, it’s trendy, and it only takes these supplies:
- 36″-40″ ribbon (depending on your wrist size)
- 19mm Tierracast pewter tree charm
- 6-7mm Jump ring(s)
- Toggle clasp (or clasp of your choice, it just needs a hole large enough to accommodate your ribbon)
You’re barely going to believe this is all it takes, but here goes. Thread one end of your clap through the ribbon, and tie an overhand knot to secure it. You can trim off the excess or not, as you like. (I did.)
Next, add a jump ring (or two, I like the look of a double ring) to the charm. Thread that onto the ribbon.
Now, add the other end of the clasp to the other end of your ribbon. You may want to take a moment before tying it to make sure it’s the right length when you wrap it. I like my wraps to be snug, but design yours in whatever way feels most comfortable to you.
Just like the first end, tie an overhand knot to secure it.
Trim the ends, if you like, or leave them loose. And that’s it – it’s ready for wear. My finished length was about 28″ total, for 4 wraps.
It’s a really simple but stylish statement piece. Kind of bohemian – and I really love it!! It screams SUMMER to me.
All the designs I share, I encourage you to put your own spin on – but this can be made really personal by choosing your favorite color, mixing ribbons, and finding that charm that’s special to you. If you read here often, it should come as no surprise that I picked a tree. :) I love trees!
What’s your style? What kind of charm do you see on this design?
