3 DIY Summer Bracelets

Ok, it isn’t really summer yet, but it is never to early to make some bracelets, right? Today I will show you 3 ways to make easy summer bracelets.

Bracelet 1:

For this bracelet, you will need a few kinds of string. I used one with little beads, one with bigger beads, one braided string and two strips of felt.

Make sure they are all the same length and glue them to a piece of thin cardboard (like from a cereal box) as shown in the photo:

Then, add some more glue and bend the cardboard over. Do this to both sides.

Add jewellery rings to both sides and attach a clasp and you’re done.

Bracelet 2:

This is the easiest bracelet to make. All you’ll need is 3 white strips and 3 blue strips of  craft foam.

Divide them into pairs of two, one white and one blue in each pair, and braid them.

Cut it to the size of your wrist and sew it shut.

It’s a really easy way to make a fashionable bracelet.

Bracelet 3:

This is my personal favourite, but it also takes the longest to make. For this, you will need a loom. I bought this mini-loom for a few dollars. If you don’t have a loom, you can make little cuts in both sides of a shoe box and use that as a loom.

Anyway, use string and put in on the loom like this:

Now take a needle and thread and put five beads on the thread.

Lay these beads on the string, with a bead between every two strings. Then hold your needle underneath the strings and pull it back through the beads. This way, your beads will stay in place.

Repeat this until the bracelet is long enough.

Then, tie the strings together and attach rings and a clasp like this:

Here’s a link to the design I mede for you to make the bracelet. You can print it to make sure you don’t mess up. The arrow shows where you should start.
