What You Need
-A pair of bright tights
-Loose beads (the bigger, the better)
-A pair of trusty scissors
Cut the top portion as well as the feet off of your tights so that you’re left with two tube-like pieces of fabric. (You’ll only need one of the fabric pieces for this project, so save the second one for another bracelet.)
Make a knot at the end of your fabric tube, leaving a few inches of material to spare.
Drop your first bead into the tube, knot the fabric to secure it in place, and give a good tug.
Continue this process with more beads until the bracelet is long enough to wrap around 3/4 of your wrist.
After the last bead is added, knot, and trim any excess fabric.
Add a ribbon to each end with a sturdy double knot.
To wear, simply tie the ends of the ribbon in a bow.
