BRACELETS FROM SCRAPS

bracelets from scraps

EVERY YEAR PEOPLE THROW AWAY MILLIONS OF THINGS THAT SEEM LIKE JUNK BUT IN REALITY ITS NOT.  I THANKFULLY HAPPENED TO BE AT MY FRIENDS HOUSE WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT TO THROW OUT SOME OLD SANDALS BECAUSE THOSE “JUNK” SANDALS BECAUSE NEW BRACELETS.

YOU HAVE TO THINK OUT OF THE BOX.  IT MIGHT NOT SEEM OBVIOUS TO YOU ALWAYS, BUT YOU CAN MAKE SO MANY DIFFERENT PROJECTS FROM THINGS PEOPLE JUST THROW OUT.

I CUT UP HER SANDALS & SEWED THE STRAPS TOGETHER.  WHEN THEY WERENT ON YOUR WRIST YOU COULD SEE WHERE THEY WERE CUT & SEWED BUT ONCE THEY WERE ON YOU HAD NO IDEAS. bracelets from scraps bracelets from scrapsSO NEXT TIME YOU ARE ABOUT TO THROW SOMETHING OUT, STOP & THINK OF THE MILLIONS OF POSSIBILITIES YOU CAN DO WITH THAT “GARBAGE”

FOR EXAMPLE SHIRTS WITH SEQUINS OR COOL BUTTONS & STUDS YOU CAN BE CUT OFF FOR FUTURE PROJECTS.  YOU CAN CUT UP OLD JEANS TO MAKE BRACELETS OR USE SHIRT FABRICS TO HANG OFF THE BOTTOM OF DREAMCATCHERS.  MANY THINGS HAVE MORE USES THEN THE ORIGINAL ONE THEY WERE BOUGHT FOR.
