So, with the Summer Sale just wrapping up, I’m betting most of us have accumulated quite a few shopping bags which are just cluttering the house. On the bright side, there are tons of things we can do with old bags 🙂 Besides re-using them, their handles can be made into jewellery 🙂
Step 1: Take an old shopping bag, with fabric cords for handles.
Note: this is not a Selfridges advertisement 😛
Braid them together. I’m guessing most of us can plait so not featuring step-by-step guides for this 🙂 But if you want some tips on starting and ending, just gimme a shout 🙂
Oh, and don’t forget to add a dash of glue to the ends to make sure they are secure 🙂
To bling it up, stick on some Swarovski crystals 🙂 You can use other types of crystals, but since the base material is quite rough, I figure it’s better to go high quality for the rest of the piece 🙂
If you’ve made anything with old shopping bag handles, I’d love to see 🙂 I’ll feature some of the other stuff I’ve made in another post 🙂
