Chain Friendship Bracelets

Chain Friendship Bracelets
With the weather warming up, all I want to do is make summery bracelets – for myself and all of my friends. For the past few weeks I’ve been playing with rope and chain in attempt to make the “perfect” friendship bracelet, and I think that these come close. They are fun and easy to make, though it takes a bit of practice and patience at first. What you’ll need: 6 pieces of embroidery floss, cut to 30″ each.2 pieces of chain (I used rose gold,) cut to 4.5″ each. The first step is to knot the six pieces of floss together at the top. When you finish braiding, tie another knot. Next, separate the floss into two bunches of three strands. Begin by weaving the first link of both pieces of chain onto your floss. From there, keeping the floss held tightly, and keeping the chain links straight (this is very important,) begin weaving through the chain at a diagonal. Keep the pattern consistent – over one link, and back under through the other. Continue weaving at a diagonal.

Triple Ball Chain Bracelet After last week’s bracelet DIY, I thought it would be fun to do another summery bracelet. (If your curious, next week’s DIY will be another summer bracelet, too – the reason for this is that I’ve had several busy weeks topped off with weekend travel plans, and materials for bracelets travel incredibly well!) Last summer, the brilliant ladies of Honestly WTF slayed me with this fabulous wrap bracelet. Ball chain – what a brilliant idea! This bracelet uses three pieces of ball chain. What you’ll need: Colorful Waxed Linen (about 2.5 yards.)Ball Chain (about 15 inches, cut into three five inch pieces.)Scissors Begin the bracelet by cutting the waxed linen into six pieces. Take your six strands and divide them into three bundles of two. When you finish braiding, separate the strands. Take two of your pieces of ball chain, and pinch them together with the four bottom strands. Wrap each of the two longer strands of linen around the ball chain, securing it to the bottom four strands.

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. It's a simple single crochet, so you can add stitches to make it wider and rows to make it longer. 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).

DIY Woven Chain Bracelet Chain link bracelets, with colorful threads woven through them, have been popping up here and there.

You’ll need:a curb link braceletembroidery threadtwo bobby pinsa pair of scissors Cut 2 sets of 15 strands of embroidery thread, with each strand measuring four times the length of the bracelet.

(top images from here and here, rest of images by Honestly…WTF) Crochet Beaded Wrap Bracelet Pattern I used light spring colors, but this would work in other shades, and the basic technique will work with other weights of yarn. Just size the beads up or down to match and the number of stitches. You will need: size 10 thread (bedspread weight)size 6 steel crochet hook (1.6 mm)tapestry needle5/8th inch buttonsize 8 seed beads - a size 8 seed bead is about 3mmneedle and thread for loading beads All of the supplies for mine came from my stash, the thread is from a thrift store, the button is from my button box, and the beads are one of my favorite colors, Orange Opal Gold-Lined.

Fishtail Braid Friendship Bracelets Today’s DIY project is inspired by one of my favorite things to do to my hair in the summer – the fishtail braid. (The Beauty Department has an easy tutorial and A Cup of Jo has a fun twist on it – check them out.) The end result is snazzier than a classic braid, but considerably easier to make than a classic knotted friendship bracelet, with the same chevron pattern. My personal favorite is to use a bunch of similar shades for an ombre effect, but you can really do anything… get creative! {All you need for this project is some embroidery floss. 1. 5. 9.

Chan Luu Single Wrap Macrame Bracelet Chan Luu bracelets are just so cool! What's great about them is that they use simple macrame techniques to produce different results, this time with the addition of beads! This tutorial adds on to my previous Square Knot Friendship Bracelets, but utilizes the beads in a different way; on the outside of the knots as opposed to the inside. Step 1: Gather materials. Step 2: Start the knots. Once you have a couple of square knots, take either side of the thread and add beads to these threads. Take two beads right up to the last knot. Make a square knot, making sure the beads are caught in the knot and lie right on either side of the center thread. Step 2: Continue this method. Once you have gotten one square knot set, continue to knot in this way, until your bracelet is as long as you need. You're finished! If you share/use/post this tutorial, please link back to me.
