T-Shirt Bracelets

For our Jewelry Spotlight this week- we are making T-shirt bracelets!  Super simple from Family Chic and a great way to dress up those old bangles while at the same time reusing those old t-shirts you have laying around:

T-Shirt Bracelets

For this project you will need some old t-shirts and a bunch of bangle bracelets. Try using old bangles that you already own, check thrift stores or pick up some up for a few dollars at Target, Walmart – or even the sale bins at Old Navy.
Cut t-shirt in 1/2" to 1" wide strips. Depending on the thickness of the bangle – a thick bracelet will need thicker strips.
Loosely tie one end of the t-shirt strip to the bangle and start wrapping fabric around bracelet – the tighter the better.
Wrap fabric all the way around until you meet the first knot – untie the knot and tie both ends together to close. Make a double knot, pull it tight and make sure the knot is positioned on the inside of the bracelet. Trim ends with scissors.
I found this technique worked well for us – but you could also use a glue gun to secure ends.
