Hard to believe, but this chic, minimalist cuff, created by Emma of blog Design and Form, was created out of a single plant stick. You could easily use a popsicle stick for the project, too. Talk about trash to treasure. The whole genre of “ things used as other things” is fascinating as-is, but it’s even more impressive when the results are this covetable.
Everything about this DIY is enticing us —we’re even tempted to wear our bracelet just like Emma, paired with a nubby sweater and layered with a barely-there bangle. Forming the bracelet shape is as easy as soaking the wood in water overnight to make it pliable, then using a trick Emma shares on Design and Form to bend it into place, and finally giving it another soak. Sleek and so simple.
