I love fun and funky jewelry. I just don't have the funds to buy some of the pricey pieces that I see in the stores.

I also love crafting with fabric and, luckily, I do have a lot of fabric. In my craft room there are boxes and shelves piled high with brightly colored fabric that is just begging to be used in a project.

I decided to combine these two loves, jewelry and fabric, and make something fun out of them.

The result is these gorgeous fabric wrapped cord bracelets and necklaces. I think they have a cool ethnic look to them.

They can be made in any color combination imaginable and take little time to finish. They are also lightweight and durable.

Luckily I had all of the supplies on hand, even the clothesline cord, but if you don't, they are easy to find.

Try making one of these colorful bracelets or necklaces for some added flair in your jewelry wardrobe.

This jewelry can be made in the following 9 easy steps

You don't need many supplies to make these cute fashion accessories.

Tip

Cover your work surface with an old towel. This way the surface doesn't get glue on it and you can wipe the glue off of your fingers too. Remember that it should be a towel that you can throw away since the glue is permanent.

Here are the supplies you'll need:

  • Fabric strips - 1" - 3" wide and almost any length
  • Fabric glue - Permanent hold and clear drying
  • Cotton clothesline cord
  • Embroidery floss
  • Scissors

Step 1 - Lay out fabric and cord

I did not have long strips of this fabric so I used 2 strips and a length of cord for this bracelet.

Cut the desired length of cord.

For a bracelet - Wrap the cord around your wrist. Make sure it is large enough to slip over your hand, but not large enough to slip off easily. Then add about 1 inch for the seam. It's better to cut it a little longer and take off length if you need to.

For a necklace - Drape the cord around your neck and cut to the desired length. Make sure it's long enough to fit over your head when finished.

Step 2 - Apply the fabric glue

Apply fabric glue to one end of the strip of fabric. It should go on the wrong side of the fabric.

Step 3 - Start wrapping the fabric

Place your fabric on the diagonal in relation to the cord, then begin wrapping with the top corner of the glue side of the fabric. Start about 2" in from one end of the cord. Pull fabric snugly as you work, trying to get out as many wrinkles as possible.

Step 4 - Keep wrapping

Hint

Don't forget to leave enough fabric to finish wrapping once the cord ends have been sewn together.

Keep wrapping the fabric around the cord until there is about 1 inch of cord not covered with fabric.

If your fabric strip is not long enough just start another one with glue.

Step 5 - Sew the cord ends together

Sew the ends of the cord together.

I use a machine to do this, but you can stitch by hand as well. Make sure it is very secure.

I overlap the ends by about an inch and join them together with two or three hand stitches. Then I use a sewing machine to really secure it.

I sew back and forth many times, getting the center of the cord as well.

Trim off all of the thread and extra bulk.

Step 6 - Finish wrapping

Once you have finished wrapping and have covered the seam, apply glue to the edge of the fabric and secure. Try to smooth out any wrinkles that you can.

Step 7 - Set aside to dry

Once you have finished wrapping and like the look of the piece, set it aside to dry. I usually wait about half an hour before I start wrapping with the thread.

As you can see it still looks wrinkled and unfinished. Once the piece is wrapped, it will look much smoother.

Step 8 - Start wrapping with thread

Using embroidery floss, wrap the jewelry.

Using the full 6 stranded embroidery thread, cut a long piece that will wrap around the entire piece of jewelry.

I like to choose contrasting colors to add interest. I also like to use two different colors.

  1. Begin by tying the thread in a knot securely around the bracelet. DO NOT trim anything yet.
  2. Start wrapping the thread around until finished. Pull the thread tightly as you wrap. You can wrap as many times as you'd like.
  3. End at the knot where you started so you can tie off the thread, using the tail that was left when you tied off the thread at the beginning.

Step 9 - Add more interest

Add other colors for interest and dimension.

  1. Add a second color of thread if you'd like to. Use the same steps to begin and end the thread.
  2. Clip and discard all of the excess thread once you have securely knotted it.

The finished wrapped bracelet

Once wrapped, the jewelry is finished and ready to wear. As you can see, it looks much smoother and more finished after the embroidery thread has been applied.

      I love funky bracelets, but because my wrists are small I have found that unless the bracelets are elastic or have some sort of stretch they will fall off. I really like these bracelets, but would need to use a stretch rope. Right now I just wear hair ties as bracelets :) Congrats on your HOTD!!

      Hi Millionaire - There are other types of glue you can use. Really a good craft glue would work, just try not to get the bracelet wet or bang it around too much. Have fun making your bracelet and thanks for your nice comments!

      Wow! Fantastic Hub and certainly worthy of HOTD. You did a great job with your instructions and the video. My granddaughters would enjoy making these.

      Voted UP, and shared. Pinned to my Crafts board, too.

      These look like a neat project to make! I have never made bracelets or necklaces with these things, but love that you can do it. The batik looking fabrics look really cool, and I agree, they look really ethnic and different. I hope to try it some time, and imagine that kids would think this is a cool project too, if they had the skill level to make it. So glad you shared it!

      I love this project! It's so easy to make and you can use lots of variations in it. For example, I might have a go at a sari yarn one. I've made fabric bracelets before, by wrapping cut fabrics in overlap, but not gluing them. I think this would be more durable than my result and a bit easier too. Voted awesome and pinned ;)

      Thank you so much Suzanne. High praise from someone who has such lovely craft hubs. The sari fabric sounds beautiful and would add a nice touch to this bracelet. Thanks again for the support!
