Repurpose an old sweater and create these easy and inexpensive bracelets.

You will need:
Old wool sweater
Embroidery needle
Embroidery floss
Buttons, felt shapes, paper flowers, and other embellishments

1. Felt the wool. Wash the sweater in hot water and dry it on high heat. Repeat, if necessary, so that the fabric’s weave is tight enough to be cut without fraying.

2. Cut loops from the sweater’s cuffs and arms.

3. Decorate the loops by using embroidery floss to sew on buttons, felt shapes, paper flowers, and more.

Tips: If the diameter of a loop is too big, cut it open, trim the excess length, then overlap the edges and secure them by sewing on embellishments.
