DIY Bracelet from Sweet Wrappers

 
 
Hey Everyone!

As you will probably know, I'm a sucker for a DIY project. Let's be honest though, 9 times out of 10 its a disaster. But, after being contacted by the lovely people at Eco Market informing me of the great selection of eco friendly DIYs on their blog, I knew I had to give one a go.

What particularly appealed to me was "Sweet Ideas: Turning Candy Wrappers to High Fashion" because I am a penchant for colourful arm candy and I already had a stash of old Starburst wrappers (which some may consider a bit odd- but I am saving them to cover a shoe box). 

I simply sat watching Sex and the City a few nights ago and followed the step by step video. The tutorial is super straight forward and I found it really therapeutic sitting making this. The final bracelet is surprisingly sturdy and I will definitely be sporting this summer.

I would highly recommend giving this a go- I feel like a professional origami-ist!

You can have a snoop at the other DIYs on the Eco Market blog here.
