Last Christmas, instead of walking all over town looking for the perfect gifts, I turned to my all-time love – D.I.Y. Made two bracelets for the girls; Part I belongs to this that shouldn’t be new to most, especially so if you follow HonestlyWTF for D.I.Y ideas. What I did is identical if not almost similar, head over (here!) if you prefer more detailed photos, if not scroll down for the steps! It’s really simple, even better if you usually braid your hair cause it’s exactly what you’ll be doing for the bracelet.
The number of strands to use depends on your own personal preference, whether you like it thicker/ thinner. Of course it also depends on the chain, whether it allows for thicker strand/ not. For this I used a total of eight strands each. Also do note that despite using the same colour thread for both, the braiding method do makes a slight difference. As seen in the first photo above, by threading blue through the chain first results in a ‘red’ bracelet (i.e. follow the steps) while if you were to thread red through first, it’ll result in a ‘blue’ bracelet.
I also made the necklace version, steps are exactly the same except for the length of the chain and thread of course. As always, thread length’s equivalent to four times the chain length.
