DIY Ribbon Bracelets

Hello!!!! I’m Melissa of the Polka Dot Chair Blog! Summer is just winding down where I live, in fact my kids start school TODAY! So for my last official act of summer, I am happy to be here sharing an idea as part of the Funner in the Summer series! I’ve posted for Mique every year that she has hosted this series, so it’s a summer tradition now for sure!

Preppy Bracelets


Today I’m going to be showing you how to make these fun preppy summer bracelets! They are super easy and a fun way to keep a little bit of summer with you all year long.

In May I took a trip to NYC with my kids, I picked up lots of fun ribbon and trim, I’m excited to be using some of it today!

Preppy Bracelets

For this project you’ll need:


Ribbon Jewelry


  • Decorative Trim
  • Velvet Ribbon
  • Pom Pom Trim
  • Lobster Clasps
  • Jump Rings
  • Needlenose pliers
  • Ribbon Ends (buy them in the jewelry aisle of the craft store)
  • Chain
  • Fusible Seam Tape in the same width as your ribbon

Begin by cutting your ribbons down to 6” long. This project will fit a teenage girl-adult, if you are making these for little kids I’d recommend only using 4” of ribbon.

New Sew Ribbon Bracelets


Using your fusible seam tape, iron your ribbon and trim to each other, wrong sides together.

Attach the ribbon end to each end of the ribbon using your pliers.

Then use a jump ring to attach a lobster clasp to the ribbon end.

Next splice out your chain to 3” long. Using another jump ring attach it to the other end of the ribbon.

It will look like this when you are done.

To make the pom pom bracelet, do the same thing, but you don’t need to iron ribbon to the back, just attach the ribbon ends and chain.

VOILA! It’s all done and ready to wear!

    Meditation also helps you in your spiritual work and makes
    it easier for you to receive guidance from your Higher
    Self and intuition. Counseling can help you take back your life and find a better quality of life.

    Make sure that all transactions and final outcomes of your
    negotiations in relation to credit repair are in a legal binding written form.
    When you want to turn over a new leaf and offset your bills and start the process of improving on your credit score,
    ideally you would spend up to 18 months. When self-help or the ‘do-it-yourself’ approach
    is not feasible and you decide to hire a company to restore your
    credit, be sure to check them out.
