- Cut your large link chain to fit your wrist measurement. Keeping in mind that your closure will add length to your bracelet.
- Add your closures to each end of your chain.Candy Colored DIY Chain
- Using your two colors of plastic lace together, wrap them around one side of your chain.
I wrapped twice through a link and then once, then twice, then once. This way the plastic laces didnt effect the shape of the chain.Candy Colored DIY Charm Bracelet Showing Wrapping
When you get to the end, wrap your laces and pull them back through the wrapped laces and pull tight.
You can add a drop of glue to keep them from sliding out.Candy Colored DIY Charm Bracelet Wrapping Finished
- Depending on the type of charms or buttons youre using, attach them to your bracelet securely.
For my letter charms, I used jump rings and attached them on the opposite edge of my chain to the plastic laces, so they would dangle.
For the buttons I used; some had a shank on the back, those I attached with a jump ring to the front of my chain. I attached them across the links on the front of the chain.
The two round colorful charms just had flat backs so I used glue to attach them to the front of the chain.
