As I shared in my 10 Safari Outfit Ideas for Women safari fashion post earlier this week, one of the things I love about planning for a trip is planning the trip wardrobe. We are beyond excited about our upcoming safari experience in Kenya with Explorateur Journeys, and planning / shopping for the Fab Fam’s safari outfits helps me temper my patience while I countdown to the trip.
The problem was that I couldn’t seem to find where to purchase them. Though even if I had, they surely wouldn’t have been cheap. I figured that I could probably make something similar as a DIY project to get a stacked, boho-style bangle bracelet look. I am very pleased with the results!
These safari fashion accessories were so easy to make! Here are the instructions for how I made them.
How to make DIY Layered Jute Bangle Bracelets for a women’s safari outfit
I started by purchasing sets of plain wooden bangle bracelets (in three different widths) from Neli Studio on Etsy. They shipped from Poland, but arrived quickly and in great condition. Then I purchased three different colors of narrow-gauge jute thread from Michael’s. I went for a cream color, a light beige, and a darker brown.
I think it turned out to be pretty sweet! The jute colors will go really well with the overall color palette of my planned safari outfits. With so many bracelets in different sizes and color patterns, I can also mix and match them in a number of different ways with my safari clothes throughout the trip.
This was an overall easy and budget-friendly DIY fashion project. In addition to safari fashion, these bracelets are great for any spring or summer boho fab or boho chic accessories looks.
