Easy Woven Wrap Bracelet

Easy Woven Wrap Bracelet
All right, if you read here regularly, then you probably remember the woven wrap bracelet from earlier this month. I promised to make a little easier tutorial. Both versions turned out great, but if you are a beginner this is an easier one to start with. What do you think? What you will need: Hemp or cotton twine (I used cotton this time) – you will need 6 strands that are 28-30 inches long.A ring connectorGlue-on end caps, a clasp, and jewelry glue Take three of your strands, and double them so that there is a loop at the mid-way point. Make a knot on each side. Now, braid each side. When you get to the end, trim your ends off evenly, add a little bit of jewelry glue to your end cap, and glue it on to secure your braid. Now, just add a clasp to your bracelet and it’s ready to wear! Perfect for the warm weather coming!
