DIY Jewelry (See Anthro) How to Make a Fork Bracelet DIY Fashion and Craft Tutorials. I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting.
Ever since I was a little crafty kid I loved devouring books that taught me how to make little dolls from clothespins, beads from rolled up magazines, and little fairy ornaments from wire and fake flower petals. The first time I saw my friend wearing a bracelet made from a fork a few years ago, I knew I had to try it (*ahem Carly ;)). I wrote up a tutorial a while back, but I've had some questions about the directions I gave so I decided to make a proper tutorial with a video! :) (Please excuse my intro, if you can't hustle your website on your Youtube channel, where else are you supposed to do it?

Its such a fun material to work with because if you mess up... you just mash it all up and start again. Today's DIY is a spin off of this project that I did a little while back. Knead the clay with your hands to soften it up. Using the palm of your hand roll out three long tubes. Mash the top of the tubes together and begin braiding. Using your own wrist as a guide determine how long you want to make your bracelet.
Connect the two ends and gently mash ( I cant think of a better word so mash it is) the two ends together. Bake for 25 minutes at 245 degrees. I decided bright yellow was not very "fall" so I switched it out for bronze. Have a little wrist party and make as many as you want!

You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top.
Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess. A Super Easy DIY Beaded Leather Bracelet. Ric Rac Rose - The Ribbon Retreat Blog. I love these easy-to-make Ric Rac Roses!
