As I shared in my 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 style helps me temper my patience while I countdown to the trip.
I started planning for the wardrobe by making a safari fashion board on Pinterest. As part of my overall look, I fell in love with these Donna Karan Urban Zen boho bracelets that I saw on Pinterest:
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 were so easy to make! Here are the instructions for how I made them:
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-gage 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 wardrobe. With so many bracelets in different sizes and color patterns, I can also mix and match them in a number of different ways throughout the trip.
This was an overall easy and budget-friendly DIY fashion project. In addition to safari style, these bracelets are great for any spring or summer boho fab or boho chic accessories looks.
Keep following for more safari style for the whole Fab Fam, along with other travel preparations in our #journeytothejourney!
