You might remember our woven chain bracelet tutorial, one of our favorite DIYs to date.
You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists.
My line-up of DIY projects was put on hold last week when a friend’s grandfather passed away. She asked if I could make her and her family a series of red, tubular embroidery thread bracelets to wear during the mourning period.
Chan Luu bracelets are just so cool! What's great about them is that they use simple macrame techniques to produce different results, this time with the addition of beads! This tutorial adds on to my previous Square Knot Friendship Bracelets , but utilizes the beads in a different way; on the outside of the knots as opposed to the inside. What you get is a totally different result!
A cool boho-esque bracelet, super quick and easy to make. From Aurélie Bidermann, these bracelets sell for a whopping $170 a pair. The fabric is just cotton (you can use fabric scraps for this) and the chain isn't gold or anything, it's silver-plated, the same you can buy at Michaels for a couple of bucks!
The first installment in my friendship bracelet-inspired tutorial section. This tutorial is a great, easy way to ease into the craft! These are addicting to make; they finish up quick, and you can mix and match colors to your heart's content. This tutorial will also tell you two ways of finishing these bracelets; one with a magnetic clasp, the other with a simple bead and loop closure.
The next tutorial is pretty cool.
We were super excited to share the Fishtail Friendship bracelet tutorial with you and we are even more excited to share that we've found an easier way to do it. Don't get me wrong, I will still use the original technique to create more intricate designs but, this new tutorial is so quick you will end up wanting to make one in every color combination possible (like we did!) This tutorial is very similar to the other one so I will just share with you the differences. 1. You will only need to choose three colors of embroidery/friendship thread. Cut two pieces of each color at around 3 feet each.
No, this tutorial does not have you making any type of designer DIY! It's a simple tutorial to make cool the-dye friendship braided bracelets. I came up with this idea when trying to get a more dainty tie-dye effect, instead of just using those thick strands of embroidery floss.
