Top 10 Best DIY Bracelet Tutorials

Hi! Welcome to Small for Big – the place where all things playful and well-designed hang out together! (scroll down to learn more about my design finds!)

Um. I have this overwhelming addiction right now: DIY Bracelets. I want a stack of them a mile wide going up my arm (the one that ISN’T covered in Shingles, thank you very much). And, for the moms out there, most of these bracelets could easily be shortened down to pint-size kiddo versions – and they’d be done faster too. Still, I think my bracelet fascination comes from the satisfaction of taking a little time to make something stylish just for me. This summer I’m trying hard to spend less moola, so this is another way to fuel my need for something new, without breaking into my bank account!

I’ve already made the first three bracelets on the list – but maybe one day I’ll have tried them all. You can see all of my favorite DIY bracelets on my Pinterest board – did I forget any? Please share your favorites in the comments!

Thanks so much for stopping by – enjoy!

The pink 1 seems to be annother bracelet then the rest ( the square bracelets ), how do i make that one?

In the bottom right hand photo? I believe it’s the same technique as the other two, but it uses flat ribbons instead of round cord. So it just looks different. Have fun!

I love all of these DIYs but I’m always struggling to find the supplies and at my local craft stores especially for reasonable prices when bracelets require a few different materials that are each individually priced quite high. Where do you buy your supplies? Can you recommend a few online stores that may sell a lot of these supplies for cheap and in reasonable quantities?

Ps. I am always looking for brass hex nuts and waxed cotton linen (in colors other than black & brown)! Where do you find them?

It’s so frustrating in the stores, they don’t always carry quality products. I have the best luck on Etsy – search the supplies section. You can find the brass nuts too!
