As soon as I saw this quick & easy DIY bracelet made by the talented Marusya over at CrashingRed, I was inspired to try my hand at one of my own.
Off to Spotlight I went to collect materials: 1m leather strap & the appropriate beads was all I needed!! It totalled under $10 all up... bargain! Wow! So! Many! Exclamation! Marks!
I cut the leather into 4 lengths, plenty long enough to wrap around my wrist & knot. I then just threaded on the desired amount of beads onto each leather strap and added one extra "spacer" bead to have at the end of the thread before the knot. (see picture below)
Voilà! Bracelet already made!
NOW for the hard part... getting someone to tie all the strands together onto your wrist without the little end-beads running towards the middle. Try it & you will see!
(I used three strands; odd numbers of things look so much better!)
The finished product is a quick & easy addition to a raging arm partay.
You could even make a single strand (like my left over strand below) & use it as a quick little gift for a trendy friend! Alternatively, your little brother's horse (named chocolate cake) could wear it as a necklace. Your choice.
Hope you're liking our inundation of DIY projects of late... we are seriously going CRAFT CRAZY!!!
