Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial
Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair? The technique for the floss wrapping I used in the wands in my costume course on Craftsy. But, I just adore the added bling. Really you can do this technique with most trimmed beads. I fell in love with the idea of the rhinestones after seeing Green Eyed Monster’s Rhinstone bangles - love these. Material: Plastic headband DMC Pearl Cotton Embroidery Thread Approx. 18″ of beaded trim with attachments in between each stone or bead (rhinestones, crystal beads, etc) Craft glue or hot glue gun Time: 1 hour Attach beginning of floss to inside of headband with craft glue or hot glue gun. Wrap floss around headband beginning at one end. You can wrap a number of times (5-7) quickly and then push strands together snugly, careful not to overlap the strands. Let it dry. Finis!

diy {bird nest necklace} I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend! What you'll need: - Jewelry wire (I prefer using a 24 gage because it is easier to manipulate but the 20 gage can work well too with the help of some round nose pliers) - pearls or glass beads - necklace chain - jump ring and a clasp Select the beads you want, string them onto your wire and arrange them as you'd like. then simply wrap the wire around the beads wrap some wire in the space between each bead (I like the look of three loops but you could just do one or two if you prefer) this is what the back looked like. now attach a jump ring and a clasp to the end of a necklace chain and this is what you end up with :) I love how each one is so different

DIY — bracelet made from braided beads | Simply Allis I came across this tutorial from ECAB that demonstrates how to make a braided bead necklace and I knew instantly that was going to be my next project. I have modified the instructions a bit to make a braided bead bracelet. I will show you pictures from my bracelet making process and give brief instructions. Please click the link above to go on over to ECAB for the full tutorial. These are my supplies. First I strung about 4″ of beads on to my thread. Next I chose to go ahead and cut 2 pieces of chain a little longer than I though I would actually need and attached a jumpring. Make sure all your bead tips are closed around the knot. A closer look. Next, braid the beads. Secure the bead tips at the end of the braid to the other jumpring and chain from earlier. Cut the chain to size then attach a clasp and you are all done! Now go find a new outfit to go with your awesome bracelet. to Pinterest Like this: Like Loading...

DIY Chan Luu-Style Wrap Bracelet Like this: Like Loading... Filed under Accessories, Bracelets, Jewelry Tagged as Accessories, bracelets, Chan Luu, DIY, DIY Jewelry, do it yourself, Fashion, Fashion DIY, jewelry, Runway, Runway DIY, Wrap Bracelets Jewelry Making Classes Online at Beaducation: The Blog DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.

DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind. I was immediately hooked on the concept of transforming simple and unexpected elements into something beautiful and wearable. That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into 2 12 inch pieces. And now, all that’s left is the sliding closure! . . . and bring the top cord under both the bottom and middle overlapping strands through the loop, into a knot. Repeat the same step on the right side. Continue to make 5-6 more knots. To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 2-3 knots along the backside. Trim away any excess cord. Thread two gold spacer beads onto each cord and tie the tips into a knot. Layer and enjoy.
