Today I am going to show you how to make a dainty Monogrammed or Charm Wood & Wire Bracelet. I recently joined the Silhouette Challenge Group and this post is part of the May Challenge DIY Gifts.

I love monograms and have been planning on making a piece of jewelry using my Silhouette Cameo and this Challenge was just the thing to get me crafting. These bracelets take around 20 minutes to make, they are super cute and one of a kind. Here’s how to make them!

Supplies:

How to make a wire bracelet

Instructions:

Open the wood circles package and sort out a few of the medium size circles. Choose smooth clear pieces that are not chipped.

Drill holes for bracelet

Using a hand drill, drill two small holes on either side of your wood circle. If you have never used a drill before, it does take a little practice to get the holes in straight, just keep trying. If your really not that handy with a drill, find someone who is to help you out.

Paint wood with decoupage

Lightly sand the edges of the circle if needed then brush on some decoupage on each side of the circle and let it dry. This will strengthen the wood and seal the edges.

Now you are going to cut out your charms with your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait. Open the Silhouette Studio, click on text symbol, type a letter and choose a font to use. I used Hiragino Kaku Gothic StdN for my “K”.

**Quick tip** An easy way to see all of your fonts and really get an idea of what they actually look like is to go to Woodmark.it. You can type in a word or phrase and it pulls up all the fonts on your computer so you can see them all at once! Love this site, especially for projects like this when you just can’t decide which font to use!

For the heart, I used a graphic I already had in my Silhouette Library. If you need one to use, you can download a heart dingbat and add the heart in as letter using the text button. Try MF Love Dings Font. The arrow I already had as well, again try a dingbat to use as a font. Try KG Arrows. I sized them all around .55 inches and set to print with the Gold Foil cut setting. Play around with the size to get the right fit using cardstock before cutting it out with foil. I love the Gold Foil it is hands down my favorite Silhouette product. I find a way to incorporate into most of my projects. Color wise it worked perfectly with this jewelry project.

Making the Bracelet:

make a wire bracelet

Cut off one loop of the wire, an inch bigger than your wrist to make a bangle. {I did not make this bracelet so it will unhook at one end because the wood I used is so soft I know it would eventually it would break with lots of use}. So I opted to make a bangle that you just slip on and off.

Curl wire with round pliers

With your round nose pliers make a loop in one end of the wire.

Add wood to wire bracelet

Hook the wood onto it and bend the wire all the way down to the wire base.

Now size your bangle, make sure you can slip it over your wrist, but not have it too loose it will fall off. Trim the wire if needed.

Close wire bracelet with pliers

Make a loop in the other end of the wire with your round nose pliers and gently bend it to hook it into the other side of the wood circle. Bend the wire to the base.

Tighten wire bracelet

Your wire will be wonky so gently bend it back into a shape of a bracelet. Gently press out any kinks in the wire with flat nose pliers.

The Silhouette Foil is made with an adhesive backing, but the sticky will not last on the the wood for long. So with a toothpick add a tiny bit of E6000 glue to the back of the letter and the charms and press it onto the wood. Too much glue will make it seep out side the letter, so go easy on the glue. Let it dry per manufacturers directions and they are ready to keep or give away!
