Introduction: DIY Home Depot Bracelet

Hi! I'm Stephanie, the blogger at Henry Happened . I have a bit of a DIY addiction and love to roam Home Depot for easy (and cheap) inspiration. Here's a simple project that screams "industrial chic!" :)

Last time I roamed the aisles at Home Depot I picked up this metal thingy. Ok, it's actually a hose clamp.
.
Its unique industrialness appealed to me. For $1.30, why not? (I also could not resist the 80 cent small version as a ring.)

Step 1: You Will Need

For your own bracelet, you will need:

- 1 hose clamp - the good news is that it's adjustable so you can tighten it to fit your wrist

- About a foot of 1/4 inch ribbon if you want to add some color

- E 6000 Glue

- Tweezers and bobby pins will also come in handy

Step 2: Weave in Ribbon

Weave in the ribbon, spacing it however you like. I did every third opening. It helps to cut the ribbon in a sharp point to easily feed through and you can pull with tweezers if needed.

When you get to the end, fold the ribbon and glue with E 6000 glue.

Clamp with a bobby pin and let it dry overnight.

Step 3: You're Finished!

You can also dress up a mini version for a fun ring!

Great tutorial!

Reminded me of the period I used to hunt stuff at DIY stores and discarded stuff at home renovation and building sites to make into jewelry. I was dating an electrician/plumber and it drived him mad that I'd use his stuff to make rings and bracelets, until he started finding it fun too!

doesn't this rust your wrist, or turn green?


What a great Idea--thanks for sharing!!!

You can completely remove the screw assembly, then after carefully determining the right size you could fasten the ends together by threading and fastening small gauge wire through the two pieces to join them tightly, then cover the wire and ends by wrapping with coloured electrical tape.

Cute idea, but how would you avoid getting banged up by the screw assembly part?

I've worn it with a couple of other bracelets so they all jangle around together. It hasn't banged or hurt at all!

Instead of ribbon, I would use a bit of colored silicone tape, or colored electrical tape--cut to size.

Yep, you can use just about anything that suits your fancy! :)

Now, this I consider very worth my reading. I have purchased many of those hose clamps and never even thought of using one for a bracelet. Great idea and thank you so much. VERY CUTE. I will share this if you don't mind?
