Crazy 8 Wire Bracelet. Basic Sliding Knot Bracelet. Earlier this month, I shared a tutorial over at What Meegan Makes on a simple, beachy bracelet that doesn’t take anything but some cotton twine and a shell (or another summery focal piece).

Basic Sliding Knot Bracelet

Did you see this already? If not – let me show you today! What you’ll need: 36″ of twine – mine is cotton, but you could use leather or hemp – whatever you like the looks of! A focal piece that is open on two ends. Let me recommend a good place to look for supplies for this project: I actually got my shell beads and twine from my local dollar store. Take the small end, and wrap it around *both* cords, working away from the loop you made. Now, feed the tail back the other way through your wraps, back toward the loop. Now, just tighten it. Try this a few times if you need to. You’ll need to have a focal piece you can pass your cord through from front to back.

Trim your cord into two 18″ lengths. Take the loop-end and pass it through one end of your piece from front to back. Now pull it tight. Fluffyland Craft & Sewing Blog « photos of my adventures in sewing, crafts, and narwhal creation. Big news!

Braided Chain Bracelet:) Crochet Bracelets:) {macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet. By Kate on September 13, 2011 This bracelet has been inspired by this really wonderful “Braided Hex-nut Bracelet” tutorial which I pinned on Pinterest a while back.

{macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet

Two things I absolutely love about this project are: 1) It’s cheap as chips: I already had string in the cupboard and the brass hexnuts were 3p each from the hardware shop. 2) It’s my kind of jewellery: I’m not really a girly girl IYKWIM! The bracelet I made is a bit different to the ‘braided hex-nut bracelet’ and uses macrame instead, which is great, because I promised some tutorials a while back and felt a bit bad that I hadn’t written any yet!

Full instructions after the jump! Square Knot.

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. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
