It’s “Time” to Make Watch Wrap Bracelets!

Isn’t it about time you made a watch wrap bracelet? First, you’re going to need a time sensitive playlist, filled with tracks like Closing Time, One More Time, Time After Time, and the like. Well guess what? We made you one!


Seriously though, this DIY project is a great way to update old watches in a way that perfectly combines fashion and function. Whether you’re into the modern leather trim look, love the beaded necklace style, or are looking for any excuse to wear a friendship bracelet, we’ve got a watch wrap bracelet for you.

Materials:
– watches

– cord ends

– jump rings

– clasps

– old beaded necklace

– embroidery floss

– ribbon

– leather cord

Tools:
– needle nose pliers

– sewing machine (for the ribbon one)

For materials, we used three watches, a beaded necklace, embroidery floss, and trim.

1. Friendship Watch: Could the title of this option be any cheesier? We think not. It’s always important to remember to make time for friends ;)

Create six braids with embroidery floss at about 18 inches each. It’s best to measure around your wrist before getting started.

Tie three braids to the bottom of your watch and three to the top. Use cord ends to clasp them together on each end, add a clasp, and you’ve got a friendship watch!

2. Beaded Wrap Watch: Bead it? :)

We used an existing necklace for this one.

First, cut your necklace right in the middle. Then cut off 2 pieces of your necklace that are 1-2 inches long. Attach one piece to the bottom of your watch and one to the top. Then attach 2 long lengths of your necklace to the bottom and top of your watch. Attach the short pieces to the long ones, and wrap!

3. Ribbon Wrap Watch: The combination of ribbon and leather cord will make you an instant… wrap star.

Cut your ribbon and leather so you have three 24-inch pieces of material.

Pull one end through the bottom of the watch and sew. Repeat with the top of the watch.

Use cord ends to clasp everything together, add a jump ring, and clasp. And you know what that is? A WRAP!

We’re already fighting over all of these here at Brit HQ!

Now you’ll never be late! Win!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
