Diy: washers & macrame

Diy: washers & macrame
this week’s diy is inspired by the twosome bracelet from anthro, the one with flat discs. it is a super simple bracelet to make and it cost me maybe 3 to 5 dollars to make total. full on diy after le-jump. supplies i used: glue, i love 527 glue & use it often. i already had this in my supply box, but i suppose krazy glue or some other type would work just fine. washers. i bought a little box from home depot. i didn’t get the smallest size, which resulted in a chunkier bracelet. there are tiny washers out there if you want a daintier bracelet. waxed cotton cord. i had chocolate brown in my arsenal, but i really love bold colors too. pick whatever size you think would compliment your washers. you only need two strands to fit through the washers, if that helps. hemp, linen, or bamboo cord would work well too. oh, & scissors.
