Baseball String Bracelet I've got a great idea to share with all of you for a super easy and cute way to make a bracelet out of the strings of a baseball. My college girl friends and I all made these to wear when we went to games...and I still wear mine to the Diamondback's games every chance I get. It's a great way to show your love for baseball! Supplies you'll need: Baseball (you can get 2 bracelets from each baseball) Xacto knife First you will need to cut out the stitches all the way around the baseball. Once you have cut all the way around the stitches you'll need to remove the leather pieces. Once you take both leather pieces off you'll need to remove the strings. Here's is what your baseball should look like at this point: You won't need the ball or leather any more for this project. Find the middle of the seam and cut it in half. Cut off the excess leather without cutting the strings. The best closure I found for this bracelet is simply tying the two ends into a knot each time I wear it.

Make Bracelets Video Tutorials | Make Bracelets! Up-cycled Beaded Silk Wrap Bracelet Tutorial Irish Linen Sparkly Wrap Bracelet Tutorial Beaded Wrap Bracelet – Waxed Irish Linen Tutorial How to Make a Toothbrush Bracelet It seems that I'm into things made of household items-- from fork bracelets to pushpin shoes, there's a trend there. ;) What you need to make a toothbrush bracelet: ♥Toothbrush ♥Pliers ♥Pot and stove The first thing you need to do is put the toothbrush in boiling water. I recommend the cheapest toothbrush you can find, whether that's at the Dollar Store or wherever-- just as long as it is the simple kind. I tried this with a Snoopy toothbrush for kids and it did not work. After you have let the toothbrush boil for about a minute, (or until it gets soft) you can easily pull out the bristles with your pliers. Bend the toothbrush until it fits your wrist. Ta da!
How to Make a Fork Bracelet 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? What you need:♥ A fork. I think these forks are the easiest to use, and I've used a lot of different forks. :)♥ Pliers, 3 pairs. 1 jewelry pair, 1 regular pair or needle nose, and an adjustable wrench.♥ Piece of thick fabric like denim or corduroy.♥ Strong hands. I've always really liked layering bracelets.
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. 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. Continue knotting towards the left until the outermost strand reaches the middle. Remembering the color order is important for the first few rows but after the 3rd or 4th row, the strands will fall nicely in place.
DIY Pearl Charm Bracelet My sister is finally home and it was a happy reunion. We have a full girls night planned (aka. 2 Mac's, Nat geo on the TV and Nacho dip!!!) I have really fallen back in love with seed beads! They make the cutest little bracelets and they are so great to stack. Today we are making cute little once with a fresh water charm left from this DIY. Fresh water pearls are really cool, their uneven texture and chape just gives them a more corky look, that I love. Wearing: DIY bracelet here, seed bead bracelet without charm, two seed bead bracelet with pearl charm... ohh and lets not forget my new J.Crew purple Blythe blouse. This DIY is sort of the base for a cool seed bead bracelet, you can do so many different combos with colors and charms. I have divided it in to 3 different tutorials (one to come tomorrow), just cause they can all be combined in many different ways. For the base you will need, seed beads, the string I am using for the actual bracelet is sort of a fishline with a fabric-ish cover??
DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet We’re nuts for nuts. Is there a more versatile and inexpensive DIY component than a hex nut from the hardware store? You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection. You’ll need:3 strands of cotton butcher’s twine cut into one yard pieces18 small brass hex nutsa bit of dexterity! Gather the 3 strands of twine and tie a knot at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Keep your thumb at the base of the braid, holding the nut in its place. Repeat the steps, by threading the rest of the nuts to the outer pieces of twine before they are crossed over. The bracelet should wrap around your wrist at least two or three times. Good luck!!

Rewired Bracelets Sarah Goldschadt is a freelance graphic designer and crafter who loves to make things, travel, and take pictures. Check out her Etsy shop, her blog, and stay tuned for more craft loveliness when her book, Craft-a-Day, comes out in October. Guess what! Hidden inside those old-school printer cables are a plethora of wire in a rainbow of colors. With a craft knife and wire cutter, you can transform the wire into bracelets and wow all your techie friends. Materials Needed: – Printer cord – Craft knife – Wire cutter Directions: Trim the ends of the cord with a wire cutter and score the outer layer with a craft knife. Peel off the outside layer and separate the wires by pulling one out at a time. To measure the length, wrap a piece of wire around your wrist and add 1.5″. Make a small loop and start wrapping the wire around the end you just measured around your wrist. To finish the bracelet wrap the single end through the loop and twist it around. You can make a handful of bracelets in solid colors.
DIY | Leather Wrap Bracelet Guest Post by Anette of Lebenslustiger I wanted to come up with a new leather wrap tutorial for a while now and I am really happy to pronounce I finally did. If you like to see my other bracelet tutorials please click here. It took me a while to wrap my mind around the "how to" because I wanted to create a braided full leather version as an alternative to the tedious and time consuming version of weaving beads in and out with bead cord between and around two leather strings. For one bracelet you will need: – about 2 meter leather cord size 2mm depending on how many times you want to wrap the bracelet around your wrist (2meter length will wrap around 4x - you could do a shorter or longer version by taking less or more length) – 1.5 meter leather cord size 1mm – 6 meter leather cord size 1mm – about 140 little beads with a large enough hole to thread onto your shorter 1mm leather cord piece. – optional a little jewelry button or something similar from the bead shop O.K. - here we go!
