Today I’m going to share a simple way to bust through some of your fabric scraps! These fabric scrap bracelets make the perfect holiday gift for friends and they are even simple enough to involve your kids in. I love the idea of wearing my favorite fabrics in an easy and chic way, so these bracelets will cover all those bases and also make great stocking stuffers!

  1. Cut 3 strips of fabric 3/4″ wide by 10″ long. *Use 1″ wide strips for a thicker variation

2. Fold long edges of strips in so they meet in the middle. Press.

3.  Fold strip in half so the raw edges are enclosed. Press well.

4. Stitch strip to secure. Repeat with all 3 strips.

5. Glue ends of strips together with a dab of glue between each one. Create a stack.

6. Glue end of stack into endcap hardware.

8. Braid strips. Continue until your bracelet is the desired length.

9. When it is as long as you want, glue ends together.

10. Clip ends.

11. Glue other side into the other side of jewelry hardware.

12. Clip the bracelet together and you’re done!

    What kind of glue do you use? I'm envisioning it falling apart pretty quick if it's not done with the right glue and would love a pointer on that! Thanks :)

    What kind of glue do you use? I always seem to have problems with glue.
