DIY Braided Bead Bracelet. It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end.

Your bracelet is finished! (all images by HonestlyWTF) Triple Row Beaded Wrap Bracelet Tutorial. Gabba Gabba Gorgeous - Anchors aweigh:) my bros in the navy<3. Two Part Harmony Bracelet. I have another fun last-minute gift idea for you! I was browsing Pinterest last week and came across a great bracelet that led me to a shop I’d never heard of, Sundance. They have some fabulous jewelry!

I fell in love with a little gem and knew that it would make a great homemade gift. It’s quick, easy, and you can customize it with any color you want! Sundance calls it the Two Part Harmony Bracelet – it’s a great blend of beads and leather. And here’s the Sundance version: Here’s what you’ll need to make your own: Assortment of pearls and beads (mine are seed beads and small pearls, as well as a large bead for the center and a silver charm for the back) Leather – about 14″ cording crimp beads 1 head pin jump rings toggle closure Cut a 12″ strand of cording.

Flatten the crimp bead with flat nosed pliers. Begin threading beads and pearls onto the two strands. Add beads until the strands each measure almost 3″. Feed the cording strands back through several of the beads, then trim the ends. How to Make a Chain Bracelet - Henry Happened. Every couple of weeks I make a trip to Michaels or Hobby Lobby and completely loose track of time. Usually because I’m standing in the jewelry aisle staring at the overwhelming array of options, trying to figure out the “right” thing to get. This has resulted in many a random purchase, and I’ve amassed a rather large collection of “wrong” items. So I decided to put my leftover pieces of chain together in a layered chain bracelet. You will need: Several layers of different chain. I used 5 different layers, combining light and dark silver pieces with one gold piece. It’s good to mix different sizes of chain too. First, gather your various pieces of chain and lay them out.

After you get them the same length, put a jump ring onto the ends of each piece of chain. Then add a jump ring to your toggle clasp but leave the ring open. Attach each of the individual jump rings to the toggle clasp jump ring and close the ring. Repeat on the other side with the circle closure, and you’re done. DIY Wrap Bangles. After recently cleaning out my jewelry collection, I was motivated to save a much neglected set of brass bangles by giving it a summer-inspired overhaul. And since there isn’t anything some colorful embroidery floss and gold charms can’t fix, this transformation was easily executed with supplies already laying around in my craft closet. You’ll need:a set of bangles a variety of embroidery flossa variety of charmsseveral 6mm and 7mm jump ringsE6000 gluea toothpick2 pairs of pliersscissors Start by applying a small amount of glue to the tip of a toothpick.

Place a drop of glue onto one area of the bangle. Place the end of the embroidery floss on the glue and start wrapping tightly around the bangle. Once you’ve wrapped past the glued section, you don’t need to pay attention to wrapping so precisely. Instead, wrap a generous amount around the bangle and then use your fingers to push the section together. Continue wrapping until you’ve reached the end. One down, more to go.

Turn the decorated washers into a simple bracelet. Here's how: You'll of course need a washer.

You can Mod Podge paper onto the top like this one, or just leave it plain. If you want the top to be nice and glossy you can put Diamond Glaze on it and wait four hours for it to dry. You'll also need a piece of ribbon and a little velcro. To find out the length of ribbon you will need for your bracelet, wrap a piece of ribbon around your wrist twice. Cut off the excess ribbon and sew velcro onto opposite sides. Weave the ribbon through the middle of your washer.

Put your arm into the hole you've just created and wrap the ends around your wrist. Pull the ends around your wrist and attach the ends together with the velcro. Thanks Sassy Sites for featuring this project!! Thanks Michelle for featuring this on Someday Crafts! // Between the lines //: A quick fix leather bracelet. I mentioned it yesterday, that I actually had time for two crafts while the girls were playing.

So, here's number two - a quick fix leather bracelet. And while I was at it I wrote down some instructions for this quick fix. Leather and leather jewelry seem to be everywhere lately, but that's not where I got my inspiration exclusively. While I was going through my reader, I came across these absolutely gorgeous booties (with free pattern - found through CraftGossip). Too bad my girls are too big for these now. You'll need: - a piece of leather; mine measured 22 by 3cm, for a loose fit. Instructions: Use the template below. Sew on the button.

To get the twisted look, pull one end of the bracelet through the incisions a couple of times, while holding on to the other end. I'm definitely satisfied with how mine looks, and I can totally picture myself wearing this bracelet with a simple white outfit, a nice leather belt, cute strapped sandals, on a bright sunny day...
