Anthropologie Inspired Old World Cuff Bracelet

I shared this tutorial a few weeks ago over at Momma Go Round, and today I thought that I would share it with all of you!

Lately, I have discovered the awesomeness that are accessories!  I have never really been a big accessory girl...until now!  My heart skips a beat when I find a fun new necklace, bracelet or hair accessory!

I love all things Anthropologie, but I don't love the price.  So I set out to make a less expensive version of the Old World Cuff Bracelet.  Mine is $5, compared to $58 in the store!

Materials Needed:
 - Two thrifted mens neckties {or steal them from your husband or boyfriend's closet}
- Metal Cuff bracelet {I got mine at JoAnn with a 40% off coupon, it came to about $3}
- Glue Gun
- Scissors

Step One: Using the scissors, cut one of the ties in half.  Using the thinner end and the glue gun, wrap the tie around the metal cuff.  Use the glue gun to secure the tie to the cuff.

Step Two: Take the other tie, and cut approximately 4 inch long rectangle from the tie.

Step Three: Gather and pinch the middle of the rectangle so that it looks like a bow tie.

Step Four: Cut a piece from the thin end of the tie and glue it over the middle.  It will look like a bow tie
