DIY fashion accessories – from watch to bracelet

February 1st kicks off a month long series of DIY accessory tutorials! I am so excited to have several guests sharing their DIY ideas with you here on my blog! Each day you will get a new tutorial from a new guest! 
I hope you enjoy all the ideas that will be shared, pin a few (or a lot) and of course – create something new to accessorize with! 
I am sharing an idea today. A DIY bracelet that was once a watch! I thrifted this bracelet/watch and also the metal medallion piece (.50 cents total!)
 The watch didn’t work and I never watch anyway but I liked the beaded strap. The metal medallion fit perfectly over the watch face and I knew I had chunky bracelet in the works! 
I picked some fabric and traced around the medallion with a fabric marker. Then I cut it out.
I applied the fabric to the medallion with some Mod Podge and let it dry. 
Then to add a shiny coat I applied a layer of Diamond Glaze and let it dry. It gives it a “professional” look.

Using some good, strong, craft glue I apply the medallion to the watch face and again – let it dry! 
And it’s done! Really easy and inexpensive too but original! I’ll be linking up HERE to share my idea!

See you back here tomorrow for DIY accessory tutorial from a guest blogger!
