Upcycle Sweater Bracelet - Totally Unique for your Craft
Business or Gift Ideas
Upcycling or re-purposing items is a great way to keep things out of the landfill, but did you know this can also help your craft business?
All you need are some old sweaters, especially the cuffs work well in this project, and lots and lots of bling to add to it and some old bracelets.
Using fabric glue is the best way to create these, but if you get creative and add just the right bling, you can sell these as one of a kind sweater bracelets.
Everyone loves something that doesn't look mass produced, and the best part of this craft idea, is that you don't have to purchase expensive bracelets, you can visit the dollar store or the thrift shop to get them, no matter how dated or ugly they are, no worries you can cover them! You can also get the above DVD from Amazon to refashion sweaters too!
I have included a video below to get those creative juices flowing. If you are looking for different things to add to your craft booth or maybe some "lower priced crafts" to make it so you have variety for all budgets, this is a brilliant idea and lots of fun to create.
I was really inspired to try something like this myself. I have really taken to upcycling or repurposing items in my home for myself, but realized that they could add some whimsy to a craft show.
Bracelets have never really gone out of style. You can make these look so unique, or even do some custom work if customers have old jewelry they would love to reuse.
Re-purpose Old Costume Jewelry into Bling If you are always collecting craft supplies for yourself or business, don't forget to collect that old costume jewelry you see in garage sales, or thrift shops or even the dollar store, as you can cut them up and glue them to projects such as these upcycled bracelets.
If you simply don't have any cool looking accessories or bling to add to your sweater bracelets, you can purchase all kinds of it online such as this roll above designed for all crafts. You can cut it to fit and simply glue it on.
If you are using patterned sweater material, you may just want to add some sparkles, but hopefully the video above will inspire you to give this craft a try and sell for profit or make for gifts.
Check out the local thrift shops and dollar stores but you can also get these online. This is a great way to upcycle and reuse old dated bracelets and old beat up sweaters that have seen better days and turn them into a one of a kind piece of jewelry you can sell or give for gifts.
This little kit you get online can save you lots of time when it comes to adding embellishments to your projects. I think this would be the perfect addition to a sweater bracelet. You could create it out of matching or complimenting yarns and then glue a sparkle bead in the center.
Hopefully this has got the creative juices flowing and you are thinking about the supplies you already have in your house that you can create these upcycled sweater bracelets. What a great way to use old sweaters.
Imagine having a lot of them on display, they will surely attract viewers at your next craft show or fair.
Trying to have something in different price ranges and also something usable I found has worked well when it comes to selling crafts. Keeping your costs down is key, so you should be able to create these for very little money.
