I love fast & easy accessories, especially ones that you can mix and match! These adorable buckle bracelets come in a wide variety of colors (I got mine from Mindy Mae's Market), and you can swap out the bow color combinations to match your outfit - love it!
To make your bow, cut three pieces of felt - approximately 1" x 2.5" (notched at the edges as shown), 1" x 4", and 2.5" x 1/2"
Take your longest piece of felt and fold the two ends into the center, securing with Fabri-Tac or hot glue. You could sew the piece together for maximum durability, but I haven't had any issues with the glue holding together.
Flip your folded piece over so that the seam is on the back side, and glue to the notched piece of felt.
Wrap your remaining piece of felt around the center of the bow, pulling tightly to cinch the bow into shape. Trim as necessary and glue to secure. Make sure that you are only gluing the two ends to each other so that they form a loop around the bow - you will be sliding your buckle bracelet through this loop, so don't glue it shut!
Choose your color of bracelet (this is the hardest part, I swear!) and slide it through the loop in the back of the bow.

Easy peasy! You can knock one of these out in less than 5 minutes!
Now go make a bunch more to mix and match with your entire wardrobe!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a great weekend!
