DIY Friendship Bracelet
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? You’ll need:embroidery threada safety pin or tapea pair of scissors Start by cutting several strands of embroidery thread at about 24 inches each. Start on the left side with the outermost color (shown here in red) and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the right to tighten. Now pick up the outermost color on the right side (show here in red) and make a backward knot, creating a reverse 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening.

How to make 5 bracelets in 10 minutes Today I would like to show you 5 different techniques to make some nice and easy bracelets. I wanted new bracelets and a lot of them so I made these very quickly. The best thing about these bracelets is that if you're crafty you'll make them for free because they can be made with what you have in your stash:left-over pieces from other DIY projects, little pieces of ropes, some yarn and so on. These bracelets are quick to make and you can have fun making them in every color! Let's start! DIY Clay Jewelry Dish It’s hard to believe that I have yet to find the ideal system for organizing my jewelry. Where is that perfect piece of storage for necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets so they could all live happily and neatly in a single place?! Alas, I have a handful of decorative ceramic bowls and porcelain dishes scattered along my dresser, separating rings from bracelets from earrings. And after seeing this tutorial on how to create a sweet faux porcelain dish, I immediately had to try it. Why not add more to my ever growing collection . . . You’ll need:one small and one medium sized ovenproof bowlsa baking sheet or wax papera paper or fabric lace doilya rolling pin2 ounces of polymer claya knifean ovena nail file (optional)

DIY: Neon/Neutral Triple Cluster Pearl Bracelet Being a DIY kinda girl, it's a bit surprising that I haven't really dabbled in jewery making before. (*Gasp*,*shock*, *horror*... I know... lol!) I figured it was about time for that to change. Luckily, my sister, Rene (who I first introduced to you in this post), is a jewelry making pro and was able to help me out with the design and creation of these bauble beauties. Wanna make your own? DIY Braided Bead Bracelet It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. 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.

{DIY} Fishtail Bracelet – Typical House Cat PSST: Thanks to popular demand, I’m super excited to announce that you can now purchase already-made fishtail bracelets from my jewelry shop, Lovecat Cult, just click here! These DIY fishtail bracelets were a product of my impatience. I ordered a bunch of Chinese knotting cord to make this necklace and the cord arrived a couple of days before the rest of the supplies I needed.

DIY Chanel Inspired Pearl Bracelet Today we’re going to knock out a some gorgeous DIY Chanel for a fraction of the price! Apparently I have expensive taste. Always have and probably always will. You know how when you’re flipping through your newest fashion mag and you see this thing, be it a purse, belt, pair of earrings, whatever that are to die for and rather than a price, there is an 800 number with “price upon request”.

DIY Turban We’ve recently received several requests for a turban DIY and so, your wish is our command . . . Before you start, tie your hair in a bun or ponytail. Fold a large square scarf in half into a triangle. Lay the scarf on your head with the center point of the triangle facing forward and the sides hanging down each of your shoulders. Making sure most of your hair is covered, grasp the length of each side and bring them to the top of your head, twisting twice to create a “knot”.

The after effects of those trips are an abundance of indulgent desserts flooding my Instagram feed. Instead of using all of the apples to make pies and other yummy treats, I thought why not decorate my kitchen table?
