Pretty DIY Ribbon Ombre Bracelet

Hi lovely Mom 4 Real readers! I’m Chelsea from Making Home Base, and I’m so excited to be back sharing a sweet and girly project with you today! This is the perfect project to add to your little girl’s Easter basket or to wear yourself.

Pretty DIY Ribbon Ombre Bracelet

I am in love with the ombre trend. I see it everywhere I go and I can’t get enough. I even saw a pair of coral ombre pants at a clothing store recently and I was really tempted to buy them. I refrained because I’m not sure if I’m quite stylish enough to pull them off. So going for a more subtle look, I whipped up this bracelet and I do feel comfortable wearing it.

You can make your own DIY pretty ribbon ombre bracelet too!

Supplies you’ll need:

Ribbon

Round Wood Beads (5/8 in.)

Acrylic Paint (in several shades)

Sealer

Yarn Needle

Fray Check (optional)

Directions:

Figure out how many beads you’ll need to paint by measuring your (or your model’s) wrist. For my (fairly small) wrist, I needed 12 beads.

I decided to do three shades of pink. I used three different shades of Martha Stewart paints because I had them on hand but you can easily fade a paint color by adding a few drops of white paint.

I painted four beads of each color. It took two coats to get full coverage. After painting all the beads, you’ll want to seal them to ensure durability.

After allowing the beads to dry, using a yarn needle string your beads onto the ribbon leaving plenty of slack for tying.

Tie a double knot at the end of each side of your bracelet and trim the ribbon about three to four inches (for tying the bow).

After trimming the ribbon, I applied a little fray check to keep the ribbon from fraying. Now all you have to do it tie it on your wrist and show it off!

What do you think? Cute right? I can totally see this as a darling accessory for an Easter outfit, or a sweet gift for a little girl’s Easter basket!

I want to give Jess a huge thanks for having me, I always love visiting with you all. Happy Easter!

The Dreamsicle Sisters used paint and wooden beads to make a painted bead necklace as well!

    Hi Jessica!

    My name is Jessica, too. :) I’ve heard so many good things about your blog, and I wanted to ask you a favor! My sister-in-law, Katie, started a company called South Wife that sells clothes, home decor, and fun stuff like that! It would be SO awesome if you could give her business a shout out in a post.
