This DIY project is a great way to update old watches in a way that perfectly combines fashion and function. Whether you’re into the modern leather trim look, love the beaded necklace style, or are looking for any excuse to wear a friendship bracelet, we’ve got a watch wrap bracelet for you.
– old beaded necklace
– embroidery or silk cord
– chain nose pliers
– sewing machine (for the ribbon one)
For materials, we used three watches, a beaded necklace, embroidery floss, and trim.
1. Braided Watch
Create six braids with embroidery or silk cord at about 45 cm each. It’s best to measure around your wrist before getting started.
Tie three braids to the bottom of your watch and three to the top. Use cord ends to clasp them together on each end, add a clasp, and you’ve got a braided watch!
2. Beaded strap watch
We used an existing necklace for this one.
First, cut your necklace right in the middle. Then cut off 2 pieces of your necklace that are 4-5 cm. Attach one piece to the bottom of your watch and one to the top. Then attach 2 long lengths of your necklace to the bottom and top of your watch. Attach the short pieces to the long ones, and wrap!
3. Ribbon Wrap Watch
The combination of ribbon and leather cord.
Cut your ribbon and leather so you have three 60 cm pieces of material.
Now you’ll never be late!
