Recessionista Fashion: DIY Chain Bracelet

Hi everyone,

Just because times of economic hardship call for thriftiness and penny-pinching doesn’t mean that we have to make any style sacrifices. That’s why I am so excited to introduce to you the newest blog series on MichellePhan.com: Recessionista Fashion. If something is fashionable and trendy but overpriced, I’ll show you how to do it yourself. All it takes is a little elbow grease and a whole lot of creativity! For the inaugural item in the Recessionista Fashion portfolio, I’m going to show you how to make your own chain bracelet.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Approximately 4 inches of gold chain
  • Ribbon in the color of your choice (approximately 14 inches)
  • A lighter or matches
  • Scissors

 

Here’s how I made my DIY chain bracelet:

  1. Take the chain and the ribbon, and start to weave the ribbon through the loops in an under-over motion. Keep doing this until you reach the last loop.
  2. Slide the ribbon through so that there’s equal amounts on either end of the chain.
  3. Using a lighter or a match, burn the ends of the ribbon to prevent it from fraying.
  4. Tie the bracelet around your wrist in a bow formation (or a simple knot if you prefer that look).
