These lace Bracelets & Choker Necklaces are adorned with a vintage shoe buckles. They would be the sort of gift you would give to your friend and immediately ask to borrow! Aren’t they just lovely!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Pair of Scissors
Lace hem facing, woven edge seam biding, black ribbon or silk
A variety of vintage shoe buckles
In my case all material used were vintage
How to put together:
Cut desired Lace length for bracelet or Choker Necklace
Fasten and secure lace ribbon on back of buckle by lifting up the latch then push down to secure lace.
Make a bow tie then clamp shoe buckle from bottom of bow where ribbon hangs down.
For the smaller buckle I Intertwined the black ribbon where you see fit so it comes out in same direction at each end.
Please note: Some brooches works better than others due to their unique designs, shapes and sizes. Also I did not use any glue in case I want to reuse the buckle for their original purpose and other future projects!
Wouldn’t these be perfect for wedding themes or simply gifts to the bride maids! Or better yet you’ll have a whole year to treasure hunt and make them for mother’s day!
Hope that you have enjoyed and will have fun with this DIY. Until next time!
