DIY Stocking Stuffers: Turn Thrifted Flannels Into the Ultimate Cozy Bracelet
Coming up with last-minute small gifts can be tough. If you're like me, the idea of heading back out into the fray after weeks of shopping was enough to prompt me to survey the items I already had on hand and get crafty. An old, oversized flannel shirt was just begging to be turned into something new so, given flannel's current hipness, I decided to combine it with another trend — chunky bracelets — to create a fun winter accessory everyone will want. They're soooo easy to make! Don't believe me? Watch this quick video:

Make This: Flannel-Covered Bangle Bracelets
Ah, flannel — soft, colorful and oh-so-craftable. I had plenty of fabric left over so I put it to work covering gift box lids to create pretty, coordinated packages to hold my cozy cuffs.
Once I got started, I couldn't stop myself. I had a few wool sweaters that I'd felted (a.k.a. shrunk in the washer) that were the perfect wintry complement to the flannel cuffs.
