DIY Make a Faux Christmas Lights Bracelet for Christmas

During my material shopping at Spotlight, Malaysia, I found a pack of cute buttons at their Jolly & Joy collection. I also spotted some colorful Christmas lights charms and decided to use for jewelry making.

If you are searching for gifts this Christmas, try following these steps below for an easy tutorial on bracelet making with a touch of bohemian style. As seen on runway, tassels are on trend this fall / winter. Remember to check out the bonus tutorial on how to make tassels using DMC embroidery threads!

Step 1

Once you have measured your chain, cut it to the length that you want. Then, use jump rings to attach the toggle clasp at both ends of the chain.

Step 2

This is the fun part! Attach charms and light bulb buttons on every 3 spaces. That means you attach the charm on the third count. Follow the sequence: light bulb, charm, light bulb, repeat and so on.

Done! Let's move on to the bonus tutorial.
