DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage.

FireLine Paper beads By Kate on October 30, 2010 I made these paper beads a while ago and dug them out the other day for my eldest son to play with.

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).

It’s based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. They’re very simple to make and depending on the cord and beads you choose, you can design them to suit your style. They also make great gifts because of the somewhat adjustable length on the sliding clasp. Just about any kind of cord and beads will work as long as the bead holes are large enough for two cords to fit through. Only one knot, a simple square knot is used throughout.
