MAYA IN THE MOMENT TEEN CRAFT: Easy Zipper Bracelets


I've been wanting to try and make zipper bracelets since, like, forever. I went to a local fabric supply store in town and bought a whole bag of remnant zippers. 

 When you buy zippers for this project, you really want the ZIPPER part to show so look for zipper that have chunky gold or silver teeth, as opposed to the boring ones that are painted the same color as the fabric.


For the bracelets I made, I opened them and cut them right above the zipper handle. These are going to be my bracelet bases. Cut to fit your wrist.

 Now it's time to load up on all kinds of iLovetoCreate products to embellish your bracelets. I used:

 Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® Peel & Stick Tape™ to apply ribbon.


 Gotta  have Puffy Paint!



When they are done, they'll look like this. I really love bright colors so I used a lot of contrast in my bracelets. Now it's time to make them wearable!

Snip off a piece of Aleene's® Hook & Loop Tape™ and affix to each end.


Here they are, my finished bracelets. It was cold outside, so my Puffy Paint one is still drying, I'm excited to wear it too!


This was a really fun project, I plan to make a lot more for my friends! Hey, if you like this project, you might like my other bracelet idea too! Stiffened Embroidery Floss Friendship Bracelets.


Thanks for checking out my project, come see me on my Facebook page!
