It’s been a pretty rubbish day at work. It started out badly when I woke up convinced it was Friday and went downhill from there. I rarely have bad days and find it hard to shake the feeling even when it’s home time. To try and get my mind off the day I decided to finish one of the projects I’ve had in the making: washer bracelets.
This came about when we put our new BBQ together and there were a few spare washers kicking around. The same day I had got my hands on some mint coloured nail varnish and just by chance the two kind of ended up next to each other which gave me an idea: diy painted washer bracelet!
To make your own you will need:
- Nail polish
- Connecting rings
- Chain and Clasps
- Jewellery pliers (which I don’t own so I used the pliers from my tool kit!)
Step 1// Paint your washers with the nail polish.
Step 2// Connect your washers with the rings. You’ll need the pliers (sorry for the blurred picture):
Use two for each link as this gives the final product better movement. Using just one to link the washers make them a bit stiff.
Step 3// Measure and connect your chain and clasps:
We think this is such a nice up cycling idea. What do you think?
We hope you feel inspired and maybe if you’re having a bad day too then try a craft to take your mind off it – trust me it works.
