Accessorizing can be just as fun as putting together cute outfits. The right accessories can turn your outfit from plain to glam. But making DIY accessories can be even more fun and rewarding, since you’ll be able to wear something you made yourself. These chic boho bracelets are some of my favorite DIY accessories to make and wear with all my cute boho outfits. But the best part is, they’re super easy to make!
Easy DIY Accessories: Chic Boho Bracelets For Your Cute Outfits
Add a Boho Twist To Your Look With These DIY Accessories
I just love boho style, don’t you? The flowy dresses and exotic prints are my go-to outfits if I’m feeling laid-back. Plus, it’s a style that’s super easy to transition from summer to fall since most of the pieces come in warm shades of red or orange. I’m sure you’re all looking for ways to keep wearing your favorite summer outfits, even during the fall. But accessorizing is one of my biggest dilemmas when I put together boho OOTDs. What do I wear to complete my cute outfits? That’s where DIY accessories come in. These boho bracelets are easy to make with different kinds of beads. Let me show you how!
To make your own DIY accessories, you’ll need these materials:
- 20-25 Golden spacer beads
- 100 Red faceted glass beads
- Gold plated link chains 3×2.5mm
- Gold extended jewelry chains 50x3mm
- 1 Lobster Claw Clasp
- Straight Wire
- Jump Rings
Once you have all these, you can start making the boho bracelets!
1. Thread the red beads
String as many beads as you can, leaving around half an inch excess.
2. Twist the excess wire
Twist it into a loop, just like the other side.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
Make about 8 threaded red beads with loops at the end, all of varying sizes.
4. Thread the loops into another wire
Alternate between a string of red beads and a gold bead.
5. Cut off the excess and twist the end
Twist the excess into a loop to secure the beads.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 on the other side
Once you’ve done this, you should have something that’s shaped like a trapezoid.
7. Place jump rings
Place the jump rings on all 4 ends, but don’t close them completely just yet.
8. String the cable chains
String 2 pieces of cable chains, one for each side of the accessory.
9. Use jump rings to connect the chains
Lay the accessory down on a table, and then connect the chains on parallel sides. Do this on both sides.
10. Attach a link chain to one side
Attach the link chain to one of the jump rings.
11. Attach the clasp
On the other side, attach a clasp and seal the jump ring.
You’ve just made one of these boho DIY accessories!

Super easy, right? I love how DoreenBeads wore two on her wrist to really make the bracelets stand out. Chunky jewelry is on-trend right now, so you won’t have to worry about being left behind in the style department. I hope you have fun making these DIY accessories, and enjoy wearing them even more!
