DIY: Encrusted Statement Bracelet Made From Scraps

Things you need for this DIY:
❂ trim scraps! I used these, these, these and these
❂ white fabric or felt
❂ hot glue
❂ a snap
❂ needle and thread

Total time:
1 hour

I always keep scraps of trim because I can never bring myself to throw out anything shiny. This is a great project for using up the bits and pieces from other DIYs. You can easily make a show-stopping one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!

Cut your fabric into your desire shape. Make sure it will fit around your wrist with extra room for the snap.

Sew on your snap.

Embellish! This is the fun part.

I didn't really plan it out, I just started glueing. It was super fun and easy.
