Old, non-working watches are a common find in yard sale junk boxes. Pick them up whenever you find them for a good price, and turn them into a watch bracelet.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 30 minutes or less

Here's How:

  1. Remove all of the watch bands, and set them aside for another project.
  2. Attach the watch faces together using jump rings.
  3. Attach a clasp to the end to finish your watch bracelet.

Tips:

  1. Set the watches to important times in your life – the time your were married, the times your children were born, etc.
  2. To make a watch charm bracelet, simply attach the watch faces to your charm bracelet with jump rings.
  3. Surprise someone with a watch bracelet for Mother's Day, Christmas or a birthday. They make an inexpensive, but thoughtful gift.

What You Need:

  • Old watches
  • Jump rings
  • A jewelry clasp
  • Needle nose pliers
