Industrial Corsage Wrap Bracelet

About this design:

This pinwheels by Jangles are fantastic. I have used them in the past as connectors and as something for a lobster clasp to hook on to. They remind me of an industrial flower. So I thought, why not make a "corsage" of sorts using simply silk ribbon and a pinwheel.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 1 hand-sewn silk ribbon length
  • 1 Jangles pinwheel

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Making this bracelet is so simple!
Just tie a secure knot to one of the loops on the pinwheel, wrap the ribbon around your wrist keeping the pinwheel on the top center of your wrist and string through a loop on the opposite side. Secure the ribbon to the pinwheel with a final knot and viola! A corsage!

    I love this design idea! I would be so comfortable with this wrapped around my wrist!

    Gotta’ ask though….how do you fasten the bracelet? Tie it? If so, how do you tie it with one hand? Or is this a “husband must help” design? ;-) Thanks Ali!

    I am able to hold my wrist with the wrapped bracelet against my waist while I pull it through the opposing loop and knot it.

    I made a wrap bracelet and to fasten it I tied the ribbon into a loop at one end and at the other I attached a pretty drilled stone nugget. A decorative button would work as well. To keep it secure you may want to sew the ends down.
