How to Make a Lovely Friendship Bracelet, for cheap! (A Dabbled Re-run)
Dot is off enjoying herself at Inman Park Festival today (see all the fun we had last year?), so you are treated to a past project that you might have missed!
Make an eco-friendly and inexpensive bracelet!This is a fun and easy project, costs less than $1 to make, has tons of possibilities for customization, requires no jewelry making skill or real tools, and is a way to recycle stuff that would be thrown away! What could be better??
This was inspired by something I used to do when I was a kid back in the eighties, make friendship bracelets out of fishing tackle (specifically a barrel swivel). You can buy these anywhere they sell fishing gear – I paid 99cents for a pack of 12 and didn’t even use them all.
Of course, bracelets aren’t the only thing you can do with this — you could make drop earrings, necklaces, bead curtains, or whatever! This would also be a great project for kids to do, I could see this at a pre-teen girl birthday party…
