Three New Necklaces. I was Playing around Last night and I came up with these three necklaces. All three are made with leather, one with wood beads, one with green stones, one with pink stones. The only thing I bought was the leather. You can find it in the jewelry, bead section of Wal-Mart or Michaels about $3.00. I recycled a white wood bead necklace for this one. And a green stone necklace for this one. You just take a piece of leather and string beads to both ends. Then, fold it in half and wrap it around your neck, put the beads through the loop. Easy!! You can experiment and make all kinds. Happy Saturday Night.

BEADED WRAP BRACELET DIY This Beaded Wrap Bracelet DIY is a great way to reuse the beads from old necklaces or any odd beads you have lying around from other projects. (I used at least 3 old necklaces for this bracelet.) I feel invincible, like I have Wonder Woman’s gold cuff on! This Beaded Wrap Bracelet is so fun because it feels like a gauntlet on your arm. You can adjust the wire to fit snugly or to be loose and dangle, its up to you. Wire – I used 20 gauge (if you can find beads that fit on the larger 16 gage I’d recommend that, your bracelet will be more stiff, BUT mines still great on 20 gauge!) Step 1 Keeping your wire in the original coil, using your wire cutters count 10-12 rounds and cut. Step 2 Using your pliers bend one end of your wire into a small loop. Step 3 Start putting your beads on your wire. I noticed that when I was putting the beads on the wire, my wire straightened out but don’t worry you’ll be able to coil it back up once you’re finished. Or better yet, use memory wire. Step 4

Paracord Survival Bracelet After the positive response we had with The Magic Braid, we decided it would be fun to combine my pictures into a “mini tutorial”. For this project I will be using about 7ft of paracord to make survival bracelets for the kids interested in surviving the great outdoors! These bracelets are easy to make and a fun project for hikers and campers of all ages. Typical uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, as strapping to avoid losing small or important items, tying items to vehicle racks, securing tents and tarps, tourniquets, etc. Use a flame to melt the ends of the paracord to keep your bracelet from fraying.

V and Co: how to: make a leather cuff from a belt so about 2 and half years ago, i bought a leather cuff. i LOVE it. and i wear it to dress up with my jeans, or (when spring and summer rolls around) shorts. not frilly like most bracelets, wearing these cuffs will make you feel like a rock star. and you'll be recycling any old leather belts you can get your hands on! what you'll need: -some recycled worn belts. i went through my closet, asked my neighbors to go through their closets and then i went to goodwill. all in all there are some pretty cool belts out there that can potentially become cool cuffs. look for cool designs or painted belts-leather snaps brass plates -maxi punch set (these are the ones i used, and they seem to be priced the best. i physically bought my snaps at micheals, and my maxi punch set at hobby lobby. but these from amazon are the same that i got at the stores.) -measure around your wrist with a belt while paying attention to the design of what will show on top of your cuff. you are done.
