DIY Braided Bead Bracelet. It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet

I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end. Your bracelet is finished!

So here are some more no-carve pumpkin ideas – check out my no-carve pumpkin video for more ideas here! Melted Crayons: With the popularity of the melted crayon art, here are some melted crayon pumpkins by Jenny May Meyers. Use a blow dryer or lighter to melt the crayon wax onto your pumpkin. Ribbon: Use ribbon and a glue gun to achieve the look Lace: A nice sheer lace with a hole for the stem and hot-glued to the base will give you this fancy look. Paper and Paint: Decoupage floral paper onto your pumpkin (use the technique seen in this video) and use a stencil and acrylic paint to get the patterned look. Twine: Use a ball of twine and make it look like a pumpkin with a stem and some Autumn leaves. Paint and Bows: Paint two witches legs on two different pumpkins using acrylic paint and glue real bows on her shoes for the finishing touch.
