DIY Macrame Bracelet - Honestly WTF

DIY Macrame Bracelet - Honestly WTF
Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.

Martenitsa Bracelet – the KUMIHIMO Technique We sent our baba Marta to Japan – we made a bracelet martenitsa with the kumihimo technique. As we didn’t have the original kumihimo disk, we made our own and the result was quite impressive. It’s pretty, it’s easy enough for kids – and you only have to show them how to move the strings along the circle (count 1, 2, 3 and move to the empty slot). My daughter immediately made a bracelet for her friend… it’s easy, and it’s fun! To make the braiding base (faux kumihimo disk): Take a piece of medium-thick cardboard (not the thickest kind as there will be some fine cutting to do).
