How to Make a Fork Bracelet DIY Fashion and Craft Tutorials I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting.

Day 63 – DIY Corona Glasses I cannot even tell you how excited I was when I found this pin explaining how simple it is to cut glass bottles. For our first anniversary, my husband signed us up for a glassblowing class. It was awesome and we had a great time.

diy: adjustable knot bracelet i’ve noticed many simple cord, hemp, & leather bracelets recently, especially in large amounts stacked together. here is a quick & simple tutorial on how to get those two adjustable knots & make a boho-esque bracelet for your self. & remember to cut the excess cord. you can cut pretty close to the knot too, they don’t come lose very easily.also, sorry for the blurriness, it seems my sister has the shakiest hands ever (she was snapping some of the photos). the principle of this is pretty simple & you easily whip out some really pretty & low cost bracelets. wooden & old funky beads look the best i think. oh, & for the length of cord needed, i wrote 1.5 ft just to be safe…but a general rule is double what you are making; for a 7inch bracelet you will need around 14 inches & so on. i hope to make some more tutorial on knots & such so stay tuned. ugh. so happy it’s thursday already.
