Step 1: Materials
Ribbon (the thickness and length will depend on the size of the washers you use and the size of your wrist. I used 1.5' of 1/2" ribbon)
Washers (any size you want. I used 5/16")
Needle and thread
This bracelet will take about 20 minutes and cost $5-10 depending on what you have on hand.
Step 2: Prep the Ribbon
Step 3: Weave the Washers Onto the Ribbon
For a more colorful bracelet, use nail polish or spray paint to paint the washers and string them onto colorful ribbon.
The washers I bought are flat on one side and rounded on the other. I want the rounded side up so that will change how I thread them onto the ribbon.
Thread one washer onto the ribbon face up and another face down. Leave 2" of ribbon at the end for making the clasp later.
Go over the top of the second upside down washer and back through the first washer. Pull the ribbon as tight as you'd like, The looser it is, the further apart the washers will be. Now thread the ribbon back up through the hole of the second washer.
Continue threading the washers onto the ribbon upside down because they will flip over. Check the length against your wrist periodically.
Step 4: Make Clasp
Go to the beginning of the bracelet where you left 2" of ribbon at the beginning. Measure how big your loop should be by folding the ribbon over a washer, then sew the ribbon together.
Step 5: ENJOY!
If you make a bracelet using this tutorial, I'd love to see it!
