first one: diy braided hex nut bracelet
the inspiration came from here and i wanted to make this bracelet so much! unfortunately, i didn't find gold hex nuts, so i had to use silvers. but i'm about to buy gold paint and i'm going to make those nuts gold! ok, but for now they're silver:
you will need: some hex nuts (i found them in a local craft store) and a golden band.
start braiding your band (i put it where it's more comfortable to braid, as you can see)
begin to braid in your nuts. thread on a nut, push it against the base of the braid, and crossover. hold it in its place tightly with your thumb and thread on another nut, push it against the base of the braid and crossover. at first it's not very easy but when you get the system it gets really simple.
and when all the nuts are braided, keep braiding the band until the bottom, then make a knot and that's it!
this is how it looks! nuts may be kind of big, but that's ok, they look really good!
second one: studded friendship bracelet
i just found an old friendship bracelet and i wanted to renew it! and studs always work great for things like these.
i used three studs and a friendship bracelet
put the studs at the place where you want to stick them in
use scissors or whatever you want to bend the prongs. don't hurt yourself, be careful!
and this is it!
if you're going to make these bracelets, let me know - leave the comment or somehow else! x
