Project Re-Style # 25 Denim Bracelets

Happy Monday Everyone! 
Once again,  here we are.
Project Re-Style Monday.  
This is week #25 of my project Re-Style Challenge.  What is this Project Re-Style Challenge you ask?   Well... it is  Re-Styling something old into something new, and I just LOVE it. I relish in the thought of turning something old into something new.  I will post all the details about Project Re-Style at the end of this post, as always.
This weeks Re-Style comes straight out of the June issue of  InStyle Magazine.  

Denim Bangle Bracelets.
How cute are these?, Great for summer.
A Great DIY.

Remember my dyed denim? This is all the leftovers from that.
So lets make some bracelets.:)


  Cut your leather or stiff material around the widest part of your hand,  leave just a little to overlap.
This leather was a belt, and a wonderful donation that E gave me, (Thanks E, coffee time soon! :)) and it was thin enough to cut with scissors. I cut it in varied widths.

 Take your strips of denim and hot glue the first  strip down.
 Wrap and Glue as you go keeping the denim tight.
 Until you get to the end.
 Once you get to the end slightly over lap the two pieces and hot glue.  Then continue with your denim strips.
Wrap where the two pieces overlap.  Then hot glue, and trim the extra off.

I used my finger and frayed the edges just a little.

I took a piece of scrap leather and lined the inside of the bracelet.
And Ta-dah!! 
Bracelets for pennies

One of them, I wrapped with a chain, then I connected the two pieces of chain with a jump ring, and let some of the extra chain hang down.
 For the Bigger Bangle, I made a denim tassel, wrapped it around and hot glued it.

Happy Re-Styling
