Looking for a fun and easy DIY project? Try making an earthy bracelet by wrapping cotton yarn around a jute rope. To make this project, you'll need jute rope, cotton yarn, coconut shell buttons, a hemp cord, and basic craft supplies. Medium size 4 cotton yarn is recommended as it is lightweight and easy to work with. Plus, it's widely available and affordable, making it perfect for this project.
If you're interested in fundraising, making your own jewelry is a great idea. And to add a personal touch to your creations, you can make handmade tags using simple supplies. Handmade tags can really make your items stand out. In the video, I share a DIY tag idea using kraft paper (65lb./lightweight card stock), but you can use heavier-weight kraft paper like 80-100lb, or any card stock you already have.
I hope you enjoy creating your own earthy bracelet and experimenting with different tag ideas. Have fun with your new craft project!
Creating earthy bracelets
If you want a thicker bracelet, you can add more pieces of jute rope to the original piece. In the picture, you can see three different thicknesses of bracelets that were made by adding different amounts of jute rope.
Although they may look almost identical, when you touch them, you can feel the difference in thickness. By experimenting with different thicknesses, you can find the one that is just right for you. A thicker bracelet may feel more substantial and make more of a statement, while a thinner bracelet may be more delicate and subtle.
Ultimately, the choice is yours and depends on your personal style and preferences.
Your DIY earthy button and loop closure bracelet is now complete and ready to wear!
Tip: Apply a small amount of clear nail polish to the ends of the jute rope to prevent fraying.
