DIY Hardware Store Bracelets
If you follow me on Instagram, you already caught a little preview of these DIY bracelets. I love them so much, I couldn't help but sharing! I stopped by my neighborhood hardware store the other day looking for some spray paint and inspiration. I didn't find the spray paint--nothing quite matched the shade I was looking for--but inspiration abounded. After clearing out the stock of 1/4 inch compression sleeves at both hardware stores in my area, I hopped the metro to the suburbs to hit up Home Depot with a friend and this rainbow of DIY hardware store bracelets was born. Tools and materials: Embroidery thread Jewelry pliers Super glue 1) Tape the end of the embroidery thread to the end of the piece of rope. 2) Begin wrapping the thread around the rope. 3) Continue all the way down the rope, then tape down and trim the thread once you reach the rope end. 4) Slide on the compression sleeves. 5) Put a drop of glue in the end caps and secure on each end of the rope, covering the tape.
