DIY Spring Sari Ribbon Bracelets

Make a statement with bold and bright sari ribbon bracelets!

I adore bracelets and they are my jewelry of choice.  For as long as I can remember I have favored adorning my wrists with everything from leather to beads.  I remember my favorite was a sunflower seed bracelet I made at summer camp.  I also picked up a Tagua Nut bracelet on my first mission trip to Panama and love that it holds a story of a memorable time in my life.  You can read about it HERE if you like.

I am happy to share with you my idea for colorful and easy to make sari ribbon bracelets that require few supplies.  I was at the local home improvement store and spotted vinyl tubing and thought it could be used to make bracelets and the challenge began!

DIY Spring Sari Bracelet Tutorial with Roben-Marie

What is Sari Ribbon?

I have a creative crush on anything sari and especially handmade Kantha quilts, but that is another article for another day.  If I ever make it to India I will need extra suitcases to get all of my loot home! 

Sari is created by woman in fair trade co-ops by collecting the remnants of sari silk fabric accumulated during the truing and trimming of fabric during the manufacturing process. Then these woman sew the divers silk remnants end to end to create this tactile one of a kind yarn.

Please note: the size of the tubing I used is 5/16 in OD x 3/16 in ID.

So, where do you get Sari?  Here are some of my favorite sources:  Etsy, Amazon and Darn Good Yarn.

Easy to make "color pops" for your wrists!

I recently received an e-mail from Anthropologie and the model is wearing a scarf tied around her wrist, creating a clever alternative to a cuff.  Make a couple sari bracelets and stack them to create a similar look of your own!

Personalize your bracelets with small details.

These sari bracelets look beautiful on their own in a variety of different colors, but by adding charms or hand embroidery such as French knots, they really do become little works of art.

Happy Creating!!
