To make a zipper bracelet, cut a zipper in half, glue the pieces together, sew Velcro onto the ends, cut the teeth off of another zipper, and glue it over the cuff in a spiral pattern. The supplies you need are zippers, shears, Velcro, thread, a needle, toothpicks and glue.
- Create the cuff
Cut a long zipper in half with heavy shears. Lay one piece horizontally on a flat surface, and place the other piece above it so the edges overlap. Join the pieces with fabric glue, and let it dry according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
- Attach Velcro
Sew Velcro tabs onto the ends of the cuff.
- Decorate the cuff
Cut the teeth off of a long zipper, and discard the fabric. Glue one end of the zipper to the bracelet with a dot of fabric adhesive. Arrange the zipper on the cuff in an elaborate spiral pattern, gluing it as you work. Apply the glue to the metal with a toothpick, press it to the fabric, and use the toothpick to scrape away excess glue that migrates to the cuff.
- Dry the bracelet
Leave the bracelet on your work surface for several hours. It is ready to wear when the glue is dry.
