DIY: Color Stretch Watchbands

May 17, 2012

This brilliant DIY was submitted by my lovely sister Jana. She found a gold watch with interchangeable bands at Aldo, but wasn’t crazy about the bands. So here is what we came up with..

I have loved seeing all these fun elastic wrist bands being sold everywhere, so why not work them into watch bands? You can also do this with any trim you choose. I used one of my favorite braided trim headbands that had gotten stretched out, and turned it into the wristband below.
Elastics or trims (like here or here)
Gold Watch Face (found mine at Aldo)
Gold chain links 
Lobster Clasps
Hot glue gun or liquid stitch
1. Measure out your elastic to wrap around your wrist 2-3times + 1/2 inch to fold over on ends.
2. Wrap the ends around the chain links and glue. Hand stitch to secure for long term.
3. Add lobster clasp and loop the band through the watch face.
I now have several watchbands to match the mood of the week;)
Kind of want to get these polka dot bands. Or maybe even lace elastic.
P.S. So sorry for being a terrible blog friend lately. My inbox needs a manager;) Just trying to get through the next week! And btw, Don’t gorget to check out the amazing 2000 FB fans giveaway!
