DIY plastic bottle bracelet

DIY Plastic bottle bracelet / DIY pulsera con botella de plástico

Today I bring a very easy tutorial with recycled materials that proposed to me Valentina from Manù Macramè. The plastic bottle bracelet is another workshop that we did at the Etsy Craft Party in Madrid and virtually no sewing is required to do it. The materials needed are: a plastic bottle, a cutter, fabrics and trimmings and a glue gun or fabric glue.

First with the cutter cut a piece of the bottle about 3 or 4 centimeters wide depending on how wide you want the bracelet.

Once cut we can leave it as it is or make a transverse cut to fit your wrist, always leaving enough space to remove it and put it with ease. It is recommend lining it with tape to fix the cut and cover sharp edges.

After that, either with tape or glue, attach one end of the fabric with which you want to line the bracelet and go passing around. In this case fabric comes from a t-shirt that fits very well and leaves very decorative folds.

To finish lining bracelet you may stick the other end with glue on the inside or you can make a couple of stitches to hold it better, up to you!

You can add more embellishments to the bracelet using a hot glue gun or fabric glue.

In this case I used a white lace ribbon, but you can also use buttons, sequins and all sorts of trimmings.
