When is the last time you gave your accessories an update for spring? Spring has always held a special place in my heart fashion-wise. When you’re on a budget and trying to get out of debt, though, it is not a luxury you’re taking. Of course, it’s hard to justify purchasing even a new Easter dress when the old one still fits fine. I’ve been wearing mine for 5+ years now, except when I was 7 months pregnant with my youngest that is. Luckily we can update our spring look and keep it in the budget with crafts like this DIY pink and ivory rose bracelet. It is a beautiful piece to show off on your arm just as the weather is warm enough to do so.

Growing up, spring was the one time a year I knew I was getting a new dress. Every year we got new Easter clothes, not hand-me-downs from yard sales. Even if we couldn’t afford to buy the clothes, my mom would somehow find some gorgeous fabric and make me a new dress. The dresses were always bright pastels and so pretty. I couldn’t wait to walk into church with my new frills each season. That is probably why I still get that itch to freshen up my wardrobe every spring. Instead of foregoing the tradition altogether, I am simply finding budget-friendly ways to do it.
- Light Green DMC Color Infusions Memory Thread
- Silver Plated Heart Toggle Clasp
- Jewelry Tools (The wire cutter is all you need)
- Ivory Rose Beads
- Ceramic Pink Flower Beads
- Glass Pink Cats Eye Twist Beads
First, cut a length of light green thread that is 3”-4” longer than the length it takes to wrap around your wrist.
- Use your wire cutters to do this and make it a clean cut. If you don’t it will fray and make it extremely difficult to thread through the beads.
Next, attach the straight bar from your toggle set to one end of your thread with a double knot.
Then trim any excess thread at the end of the knot. Do not cut the long length of thread that will be your bracelet.
Begin threading on your beads using the toggle bar end to prevent them from falling off. Start with a ceramic pink floral bead followed by a glass pink twist bead. Then add a rose bead followed by another glass pink twist bead and a ceramic pink floral bead.
Continue threading on your beads until you reach the length needed for your wrist. If you are not ending on a ceramic pink floral bead, continue the pattern until you can. It is better for your bracelet to be a little loose than too small.
Lastly, attach your heart toggle by wrapping your thread through the eye 3 times. Be sure the eye is pulled taut to your last bead and finish it with a knot.
Trim any excess thread with your wire cutters. This time, if it frays, simply trim the fray off with a pair of scissors.
This DIY pink and ivory rose bracelet absolutely screams spring. It is the perfect budget-friendly solution to update your Easter look without buying a whole new dress. It is also definitely a step up from those little socks with the frills we used to wear as kids. (Anyone else remember those?) How else do you plan to update your style this spring? Check out this easy DIY Gold Monogram Bangle to add a little extra glam to your wardrobe for pennies.
