DIY beaded wire bracelets
My daughter made serviette rings for me quite some time ago. I use them a lot and wanted to recreate them for a blog post.
And as happens with a good few of my DIYs I ended up making something different. Instead, I made this easy bracelet.
Here’s how I made it.
|You need wire, pliers and beads|
You need: –
beads with a large hole
You do: –
Open up your wire so it has no kinks and start loading up beads.
I intend making a collection of these bracelets so am thinking ahead about options with regards to beads. Some ideas are – patterned beads, alternating colour
|Slip beads on to wire|
beads, large and small beads and even crystal beads.
Next check you have enough beads on your wire to make a bangle. Either measure around your hand or use one of your bangles.
Using pliers, fold back the end to create a loop and twist wire so it sits flat. See picture.

Now slip the opposite end of your wire through the loop you just made.
Fold back wire and twist end so it doesn’t stick out. Make sure your ends are squashed as flat as possible or they will catch on your clothing and other items.
Lastly check your bangle is round.
And that folks is it! The quickest bracelet ever.
The serviette rings are made in a similar way, but my daughter loaded her beads on to a thinner wire and wound the wire around the thicker wire.
Don’t forget, there are lots of older DIYs in the Greenie Galleries which are at the top of this page.
Back next week with yet more ideas to hopefully inspire you.
