DIY: Suede wrapped chain bracelet





I'm currently on break from school, and I've decided to do some DIY projects! I made this suede wrapped chain bracelet, inspired by this post from I Spy DIY, today in about 20 minutes. This project was also really cheap; I paid only $5 for two chains and the suede ropes! It was pretty easy, once I figured out how to do it. If you want to try this out, I would suggest finding a chain that lies flat (I initially had a problem because the chain links were perpendicular to each other). 

ps. If you check out I Spy DIY's version of this bracelet, you'll notice that she used a line of rhinestones. But my local craft store only had colorful rhinestones while I wanted the clear, diamond-esque rhinestones. 

pss. Use these (1, 2) extra links that might help you make this bracelet!

    1. I got the chains at Michael's, which is an arts/crafts store. If you don't have one near you, I'm sure they have chains at any art store!
