DIY: Wrapped Bracelet

DIY| Wrapped Bracelet

I think I’ve spent my summer obsessed with making and wearing multiple bracelets.  One day, a student of mine came up to me and started counting how many bracelets I was wearing. It was something like 16!! Of course, the thin bangles I was wearing each counted as one.

            So to add a little neon and fun sparkle, I made this fun little guy!DIY| Wrapped Bracelet Supplies

DIY|Wapped Bracelet Steps

  1. Cut the cord so that it comfortably fits around your wrist. Make sure to burn the ends of the cord to prevent fraying.
  2. Tie some emdroidery floss to one end of the cord. Wrap the floss around the cord to create a solid block of color. Tie off the floss and add a dab of glue to secure. Repeat on the other end.
  3. Mark the ender of the cord; this will help with the placement of your rhinestones.

4.Tie some embroidery floss to about an inch away from the center of the cord. Make sure to add a dab            of glue to secure the knot in place.  Have your rhinestones on the floss ready for placement.DIY|Wrapped Bracelet Steps

  1. Wrap the floss around the cord until it is half way between the starting point and the center. Position the first rhinestone here. Keep wrapping until you reach the center, this is where the second rhinestone will go. Eyeball the placement of the third rhinestone. Wrap a little more, knot and glue.
  2. My rhinestones were shifting around on the cord, if you have the same problem, add a dab of glue between each rhinestone and the cord.
  3. Get your end caps and put some glue in them. Then push the ends of the cord into each end cap.
  4. Let dry over night!
