YARN BRACELET DIY! See the updated version of this project here! This was one of my favorite crafts to make because it is really relaxing just like knitting and crocheting! This is just like making one of those paracord bracelets, except with yarn. I got some neato small yarn just for making these! Here is what you will be making: These are straight, but you don't need an expert to tell you that making them into a bracelet is as easy as knotting the two ends together (which is what you do..). Ok so now take your 3ft., 2ft., and other 2ft. strand and lay them out. Put your knotted strand under the 3ft. strand. After about 5 or 6 repeats you can start to see the pattern! Once you start to repeat you should start to see the "V" that is created every two repeats. Ok guys hope you liked this as much as I do! Ty

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). Using a pencil and a ruler, divide the circle in two parts (1.) , then four (2.), then add the two last lines to make 8 parts (3. and 4.). 5. 6. 7. 8. Tie a knot at the end of a bunch of 7 strings (about 40 cm long). It’s very easy… I hope I manage to explain it Put the strings into the slots. Turn the disk again so the empty slot points downwards… and repeat the process, moving string number 3 to slot 0. see also:

DaisyTute After I showed this daisy bracelet on the About Jewelry making forum, I was asked for directions on how to make it. I didn't have any more of the pink and green fiber optic beads to use in a tutorial, so I'm going to use different colors. Try your own color combinations and see what you can come up with! Click here to see other colors, and pics of pieces sent in by other jewelry artists. Materials: 72 4mm round beads 12 8mm round beads size 11.0 seed beads (approx 120) Thread.... 1) Begin by picking up eight 4mm beads and tie them in a circle. Be sure to leave about 10 inches for a tail to attach the clasp later. 2) Pick up your center bead (8mm) and go up through the 4th petal bead from your knot. This bracelet is made by making the individual motifs and then connecting them. *Try different ways of connecting the flower squares for a totally different look! 3) Pick up 3 seeds, one 4mm, and 3 seeds. 4) Repeat step 3 three more times. 8) Now you can start to connect them. DONE!

DIY Heart Friendship Bracelet As the month of love approaches, we thought we’d combine friendship and hearts into one Valentine’s Day themed tutorial: a heart patterned friendship bracelet! Using some candy-colored embroidery floss and your familiarity with the chevron friendship bracelet, you’ll be able to whip up one of these tokens of love in a heartbeat. You’ll need:2 colors of embroidery flossscissorstape or clipboard Creating a heart pattern involves just a simple modification to the chevron patterned friendship bracelet. Start by cutting 4 strands of each color, at about 24 inches each, for a total of 8 strands. Alternate the thread colors before tying them together in a knot. Separate the threads into 2 sets, 2 of each color on each side. Start on the left side with the outermost strand (shown here in red) and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd strand (shown here in blue), loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the right to tighten. Mirror the step on the other side.

craft blog : Crochet Beaded Bracelet I've found another use for my crochet cotton thread - a beaded bracelet. It's great for summer, when you might be getting sweaty, dirty, or jumping in the pool (sea, lake, whatever), because it's washable - so you don't even have to take it off. This pattern could easily be changed to be an anklet or choker. I reserve the copyright on the pattern and the instructions (which means you can't reprint this anywhere), but feel free to make all the bracelets you want and do anything you want with them (yep, you can sell them).

michael ann made.: woven friendship bracelet tutorial i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon trace a circle onto your cardboard, and use a ruler to draw 8 lines cut a small ways into each line, between 1/2 an inch to an inch and make a hole in the middle of the circle where all the lines intersect. cut 7 strands of embroidery floss, about 24 inches long and tie them together with a slip knot. pull your thread bundle through the hole in your cardboard with the knot right up next to the hole and use a little piece of tape to hold it in place while you start. now for the fun part!

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.

Fusion Beads, bead, beading, sterling, seed beads, charm, swarovski, lampwork, glass, jewelry, pearls Step 1 Cut the cord to twice the length of the desired bracelet size PLUS 12 inches. For example, a 7.5-inch bracelet will require 27 inches of cord. Slide a button to the center of the piece. Step 2 If the hole in the button is a bit too small for the cord, cut the cord at an angle to make it easier to string on. Step 3 Clip the button into a clip board. Step 4 Cut the thread about 8 feet long, thread the needle, slide it to the center to double the thread. Step 5 Tie the thread around the cord on the left using a lark’s head knot. Step 6 String one bead.
