DIY Tie Bracelets

Yes, it’s a bracelet made out of a men’s tie!!  While waiting in line at the grocery store the other day I was flipping through a magazine when I came across these tie bracelets. I loved them and knew I had to have one.  There’s a world of old ties out there that nobody wants, think of all the bracelets we can make?

So what do you think?  Are you going to give it a try?


I knew my husband wasn’t about to let me chop his ties up so I headed to Salvation Army.  The ties are only $.99!  Try any thrift store (ties are always pretty cheap).  I found two that I thought would work just perfectly for my bracelets.

These are such a simple project to make, even if you are not a sewer.

To start, wrap the narrow end of the tie around your wrist to get the approximate length you’ll need.

Add about ¼ of an inch extra, and cut.  Take your raw edge and with fabric glue, glue your raw edge under.  Of course, you could always sew it, but I chose glue since I’m not much of a sewer.  I happen to have sticky velcro on hand, which I used to put on each end of the bracelet.

Remember to make sure it’s the right size before applying your velcro for good.  After the bracelet was complete I added a vintage jewel on the top for a focal point. Try a large button, buckle, or maybe a fabric flower?

I’m so excited to have such a gorgeous new bracelet for only 99 cents!  What a deal!!

There are such a variety of colored and patterned ties out there.  You could literally make one to match every outfit!!  Think of all the ties we can give a new life.  They’d also make a great unique gift!!  Make a few for yourself and a few for gifts.  I’m sure any girl would love one!!  Have fun!!

  1. This is just awesome. Now I collected ties to do Easter eggs, that you wrap and cook for 2 or 3 hours and it dissentegrates the inside so you keep forever. Now I can use them for bracelets too. I just found blanket scarfs yesterday. I am ready for Christmas now!

  2. Your creativity must be inexhaustible, Camila. Fabulous work, my dear! I have some vintage ties that I just might need to transform into blingy bracelets. Pinning and stumbling!
