How To Make A Quick, Simple and customize Denim Bracelet. Free Jewellery Making Tutorial.

Updated on September 22, 2015

This simple and quick to make bracelet would make an ideal project for children or teenagers. The materials required to complete the tutorial are easy to obtain or you can easily upcycle some other bracelets using this technique.

The bracelets can be left plain or decorated in many ways such as with beads, coloured threads, sequins, small buttons or charms. Items can be sewn on through the denim or if a clear thread such as beading nylon is used it can be wrapped around the bracelet.

By using a wider bracelet as the base you can also create thicker bracelets which have more scope for decorating and customization.

When you have wrapped the entire bracelet, overlap the denim ends and secure this with a small amount of glue. You can trim off any extra denim material if you feel there is too much.

If you wish you can now cut off the fraying along the denim edges. Alternatively you could leave them as they are depending on the look you are after.

If you trim the edges now they will fray again over time unless they are sealed. This can be done by brushing the edges with a little PVA glue.
