Today’s project is from our new contributor, Amanda!  You’ll be seeing many more budget-friendly crafts from her in the coming weeks.  Take it away, Amanda…

Creating a lace bracelet is an easy way to add a romantic touch to your wedding day accessories.  With just a few items, this bracelet can be completed in a couple of hours.  So, turn on your favorite show, gather the supplies and enjoy some crafting!

What you’ll need:

  • Lace (1-2 inches in width, approximately 6 inches long)
  • Fabric stiffener
  • Chain, jump ring and clasp
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Paint brushes
  • Metallic paint

Estimated cost: $10

Materials

Directions:

  1. Lay your lace on a piece of plastic or wax paper and use a paint brush to cover the lace with fabric stiffener.  Let the stiffener dry for an hour before moving on to the next step.
  2. Lift your lace from the wax paper and move it to an unused dry spot.  Color the lace with metallic acrylic paint using a paint brush.
  3. Cover a glass or water bottle with saran wrap and drape the painted lace around it to help give the lace a round shape while it dries.

    Step 3

  4. When your paint is completely dry, attach the chain, jump ring and clasp through holes on the lace.

I found my bracelet to be bigger than I’d like, so I simply cut around the shapes and ended up with two.  It’d also be easy to add rhinestones or a silk flower to your bracelet with hot glue.  Have fun and enjoy making it your own!
