These fun coloured t-shirt yarn bracelets are super chic, easy to make and best of all cheap. The perfect thrifty Summer accessory for kids and adults. Great for the beach, holidays, parties, going out, hanging out and of course festivals.
T-shirt yarn (buy in a shop or make your own), ribbon crimp ends (I used 10mm), 4mm jump rings, jewellery clasps, flat nose and round nose pliers (you can use ordinary house hold pliers and possible a little glue to secure the yarn in the crimp … but it’s not necessary.
Wrap the t-shirt yarn around the wrist twice and cut. Now use this piece to measure out two more pieces so you have three in total.
Tie a loose knot towards one end and plait the t-shirt yarn until the end.
Cut the end so it’s flat being careful to hold tightly so the plait doesn’t come undone.
Carefully place your ribbon crimp end over the cut end pressing firmly with the flat nose pliers. You can add a small amount of glue to hold the yarn in place. Keep checking the sides and push in and yarn that pokes out. I cover the end of my jewellery pliers with masking tape to protect the ends and so the pliers don’t mark the findings).
Undo the knot and finish the other end off in the same way. Attach your clasp using jump rings (flat nose pliers are great for fiddly jump rings) and your finished. Wear them on their own or stack them up.
Make extra long ones that have to be doubled or tripled around the wrist.
A perfect for making and sharing with friends.
