Brocade Bracelets



No sewing needed for this easy project; bohemian-style bracelets are made in moments from brocade trim, hot glue and velcro…

The older kids can make these on their own – they are so simple.

Make a few and pile them on – they look great in bunches.

I got my trim at Joann Fabric and Crafts Stores ($8.99 – $14.99 for 9 foot spools). You can also check garage sales, Etsy and EBay for vintage trim too.

For this project you will need: brocade trim (available by the yard or spool at fabric and craft supply stores), velcro and a glue gun.

Cut brocade trim to a length that will fit your wrist with about a 1-inch seam allowance.

To finish the ends, fold ends in (about 1/2 inch) and glue down with hot glue.

Hot glue Velcro pieces to each end – one on top and one underneath so the ends will lay flat when your bracelet is closed.

To make sure the Velcro is secure, allow glue to dry for at least 15 minutes before wearing.

My daughter loves these.
