In my experience, when I make DIY bracelets, the first thing I want to do is show them off. I just can’t help myself, especially if they turn out to be absolutely fabulous.
I mean, I took the time and the effort to make something gorgeous, so why not flick and shake my wrist a bit to show off my handiwork? At the end of a homemade bracelet project, I feel like I’ve earned it. Plus, a lot of the DIY bracelets that I make look don’t look nearly as cheap as they cost. Seriously, some of my favorite jewelry projects are dirt cheap and yet 100% stunning. That’s the magic of DIY, people.
But let me backtrack here for a second. The reason why I love making homemade bracelets is because they give me a kind of confidence that I don’t get from store-bought jewelry. Even the high-end kind. I like putting effort into making clothing and accessories for myself. It’s just a great source of pride for me. So, when I learned how to make a bracelet or two for cheap, you can imagine how excited I was.
Basically, there are two lessons to be learned here:
- If you made it or if it makes you feel good, show off those DIY bracelets!
- Jewelry-making doesn’t have to be expensive. You can make beautiful jewelry projects with inexpensive materials.
(Yes, there may be a test on these lessons later. 😉 )
If you’re having a hard time finding a tutorial for how to make a bracelet that look like a million bucks, please allow me to point you in the right direction! Any one of these homemade bracelets would look great on you.
