Supplies for your Scarf Chain Wrap Bracelet DIY:
- Scarf(s) – Long and skinny or a small square work best
- Large chain – I got mine at M & J Trimming
- Needle and Thread – this depends on the type of scarf you’re using
- Scissors – again this depends on the type of scarf you use
- Pins – same as above, depending on the type of scarf you use
I made this bracelet using two different shaped scarves.
The first scarf I used was a long skinny scarf.
Measure your chain around your wrist. I cut mine just short of wrapping completely around my wrist.
Weave your scarf through the chain.
Once your scarf is through your chain, wrap it around your wrist to make sure you’ve left long enough ends to wrap and tie.
Adjust your chain on your scarf until it’s where you want it.
Take your ends and wrap them around the last link on each end of your chain and pull tight.
This will keep your chain from slipping on your scarf and make sure it lays flat and looks good on your wrist.
If you’re using a long skinny scarf like I did here, you’ll want to cut off any extra scarf to make your two sides even.
Fold a small hem and pin the end of your scarf.
Using your needle and thread, stitch this seam closed.
I used a small whip stitch to sew this closed.
Here comes the fun part, wrap it around your wrist and tie it. Make sure to tie it in a knot or it will come undone.
The second scarf I used is a small square scarf.
Measure your chain the same as above in step 1.
Fold your scarf in half to make a triangle, then fold the points in toward folded side and then roll your scarf until it’s long and skinny. You can see this in the video.
Weave your scarf through the chain and wrap it around the last chain on each end of your chain.
This will keep it from sliding.
Wrap it around your wrist and tie.
On this one I left longer ties. I like them to hang, I think it gives a really great scarf look and feel to this bracelet.
If you don’t like the ties hanging you can you can tuck them in. You can see this in the video.
Scarves are everywhere for Spring, all the magazines are featuring scarves. You see them worn traditionally around the neck or like this Scarf Chain Wrap Bracelet DIY, worn around the wrist.
Scarves really lend themselves to DIY, you have to do something with a scarf, tie it, wrap it and they can completely change your look.
This Scarf Chain Wrap Bracelet DIY will add a lot of color to your wardrobe for Spring and by adding the chain it makes it much more interesting and on trend for Spring.
