When looking for inspiration to DIY a knockoff of an expensive gift, I start by looking online at items from her favourite stores, her Pinterest pages, her Etsy favourites, etc. So... I knew by her online activity that my sister likes these bracelets. I was also sure I could make a great looking knockoff for a fraction of those prices. Whew!
I chose some round off-white beads with a faint champagne swirl through them. They're not identical to the beads in the inspiration bracelets, but I think they're close enough in colour and style that I can make a great looking knock off.
There's a metric tonne of tutorials on the internet, so I'm not going to duplicate one here. Google 'beaded wrap bracelet tutorial'. Do it. I dare ya. Okay don't. I checked out a bunch of tutorials and this is my favourite. Lots of pic, very clear. Check it out.
