Easy washer bracelet~

Here's another take on the popular washer necklaces. Turn the decorated washers into a simple bracelet.  

Here's how:

You'll of course need a washer. You can Mod Podge paper onto the top like this one, or just leave it plain.


 If you want the top to be nice and glossy you can put Diamond Glaze on it and wait four hours for it to dry. 


You'll also need a piece of ribbon and a little velcro.  I didn't have any velcro, so I stole a little off an old baseball cap.  

To find out the length of ribbon you will need for your bracelet, wrap a piece of ribbon around your wrist twice.


Cut off the excess ribbon and sew velcro onto opposite sides.


Weave the ribbon through the middle of your washer. Velcro ends first.


Put your arm into the hole you've just created and wrap the ends around your wrist.


Pull the ends around your wrist and attach the ends together with the velcro.  Your bracelet should be snug. If it's too long, cut off a little of your ribbon and re-sew the velcro.  If it's too small, start over with a new piece of ribbon, or give it to someone with a smaller wrist:)

  3. So cute. I have a couple washers sitting around from those necklaces I never made. I think the bracelet would be better anyway. Great inspiration.
