Upcycled accessories are fun and easy to make. Watch and learn how to make your own chain-link headband from a busted bicycle inner tube in this week’s CRAFT Video! I got this project idea from Britt McMaster, who showed us how to make a chain-link necklace from white leather over on her blog, cucumbersome.com. You can download her template for the figure-8 shape to make your own recycled chain-link accessories. You can get broken bike tubes from changing your own when they get punctured, or by asking for them at your local bike shop.

  1. So cool, Becky! I love that it looks like a big chain stitch wrapped around your head – that.rocks. Also love that the kitty made an appearance ;)

  2. Awesome job, Becky. Nice type of project to do while you’re “tubing out.”
    Like the new hardware, too.

  3. That’s such a great technique–thanks for bringing it to life for us! (And love the music by Collin!)
