What you need
- Big chinese knot button – you can make this or buy this. I’ve not done a tutorial to show how to make it (yet!) but they are readily available on you tube 🙂 If not, these buttons are found in many haberdasheries 🙂 I saw some at VV Rouleaux over at Marylebone the other day 🙂
- Optional: Safety pin/ fabric chalk
Note: like the slightly oriental feel of this DIY? Check out how I turned curtain pulls into a statement necklace– hit your local curtain store/ haberdashery and you’ll be able to get the supplies 🙂
Make sure the button is fastened (so it is 1 piece) then wrap it around your wrist. Either mentally note where the buttons overlap, of use fabric chalk to mark it. No fabric chalk? A safety pin also works to mark the spot 🙂
Glue the parts of the knot button together so that the parts overlap exactly as in Step 1- this is to make sure the cuff fits snugly around your wrist. Leave to dry and you’ve another eye catching piece of arm candy to add to your collection 🙂
In case it’s not clear- the part which buttons the knot works as the clasp of this bracelet! 🙂 If you like something even more fancy, you can add some crystals or studs to your cuff 🙂
And if you want to layer up your arm candy, here are some other gold-themed tutorials for you: Lulu Frost inspired bling bracelet, Tory Burch inspired rose bracelet (one of my most popular bracelets actually) and Balmain inspired leather cuff.
