Recently I’ve been infatuated with cubed beads and have ordered a fair few over the last few weeks. I was hoping these pink beads were actually glass like the post claimed it was, unfortunately I think they are most likely plastic – but despite this annoyance I think the project came out quite well and perhaps if more paint scratches off the beads it will give the bracelet a whole different look.

Here's another great DIY tutorial that reminds me of middle school- I loved making little friendship bracelets with friends when I was younger so I was so excited when I saw that Chelsea had created a modern, more grown up version of these classic little accessories! How fun! Hi all, it's Chelsea from Seablanket here to show you a fun, modern interpretation on Friendship Bracelets.
You might remember our woven chain bracelet tutorial, one of our favorite DIYs to date. As we're starting to get a taste of spring, we're revisiting this oldie but goodie with some minor adjustments - As the month of love approaches, we thought we'd combine friendship and hearts into one Valentine's Day themed tutorial: a heart patterned friendship bracelet! Using some candy- I've got a problem. I can't walk out of a fabric store without at least purchasing a handful irresistible notions: fancy rhinestone buttons, delicate lace trim, multi-colored embroidery floss . . .
For several months now, we’ve been receiving emails requesting a friendship bracelet DIY. Well, friends, ask and you shall receive! Today, we’ll give you a step by step tutorial on the classic chevron pattern. If you used to whip up friendship bracelets like a champ in grade school and have since forgotten how, consider this a refresher course. And if you can make these with your eyes closed and arms tied . . . umm, can we still be friends?
As you know, color blocking is the cat's meow in fashion this year. (For those who don't know, color blocking is wearing two or three loud colors together without it looking bad.) You can make your own color block straw-look bangles using one simple supply - dollar store rope. These bracelets are 50 cents a piece to make and about a half hour of your life per bracelet.
I finally sat myself down to make a Phillip Lim inspired diy bracelet. I love how the pieces in his current jewelry collection blend the boundaries of crafty and high fashion. The result is so chic!! I decided to do a bracelet instead of a necklace… I thought it would work more seamlessly into my everyday life. It’s super simple to make! Enjoy!
Ready for a seriously budget-friendly fix for your accessory addiction? All you need for these cute bangles are pipe clamps, scissors, and a strip of bright fabric or ribbon. First, take a trip to your local hardware store, walk right down the plumbing aisle, and pick out pipe clamps that fit comfortably around your arm.
If you grew up in the 80's, like I did, you're probably already familiar with the awesomeness that is Shrinky Dinks ...but did you know that you can still buy Shrinky Dinks? Yep, they're still out there - in craft stores, hobby shops, and even on Amazon . But you don't have to buy a Shrinky Dink kit to have all the fun. Just look for #6 plastic containers and you can make your own! There is a great tutorial on Instructables (courtesy of Dabbled ) with all the instructions for making your own shrinky projects from #6 plastic containers, so I won't go into too much detail here. Most of this post is actually about turning these awesome little pieces of plastic into a sweet bracelet (and bonus pendant) to give to mom for Mother's Day.
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach... as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning... *sigh* yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
I’ve been having so much fun with simple woven bracelets,everyone seems to be enjoying them - so I thought I’d show you another woven bracelet idea. If you picked up the supplies to try either version of the wish bracelet tutorial, here’s another way to use the hemp cord you probably still have a lot of. Put a word to your wish, or just wear a little bit of inspiration:
Things you need for this DIY: ✝ embroidery thread ✝ rhinestone necklace ✝ scissors ✝ embroidery needle ✝ wire cutters (you can just use the scissors if you don't care about them) ✝ jump rings ✝ tape measure (optional) Total time: 1 hour Total cost: My rhinestone necklace was $15 but check your local Claire's! I need more bling in my life. First, cut 26 strands of thread measuring three times the circumference of your wrist.
Taking inspiration from Swellmayde’s Tribal Wrapped Choker , I’ve made a cuff version with stiff spikes rather than freely dangling ones. I’m still obsessed with cuffs so I’ve been turning any inspiration into a bracelet for more arm candy! Tools: Tutorial: Start on a cleanly polished cuff.
Double Fortune Wrap Bracelet Tutorial Double Fortune Wrap Bracelet This wrapped crystal bracelet makes great use of our mylar vegan lacing to create a sweet, skin-free bracelet for your wrist. Add your favorite charm, we used a fortune cookie, or a locket and this will be the prettiest sparkle you've ever worn!
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. This tutorial is simple, but just a bit tedious. The results are very pretty though!
