DIY Wrapped Crystal Bracelet

I've got an easy one for you today! This simple project is the perfect way to play with bold, bright colors and is a fun mix of textures with acrylic rhinestones in setting combined with crafty embroidery thread. Blank cuffs like these are incredibly versatile and easy to embellish any way you choose, like this DIY wrapped crystal bracelet! Read on for the ultra-fast how-to!


Tools and materials:
24 inches of embroidery thread
Super glue



Begin by gluing the rhinestones to the bracelet. Press the stones firmly into the bracelet for 30 seconds.


Let the stones glue onto the cuff for 20 minutes. (You could always stop after this step for a cool cuff!)



Or, tie on a piece of embroidery thread...


...and begin wrapping around and between the rhinestones.


Once you've wrapped your desired amount, tie another knot, trim the ends, and glue both knots in place with a dab of glue.


Let dry a bit longer, then enjoy!
