DIY Bracelet from a Keycord

Hello everybody!

Today is just a small craft, but hang on because this Thursday there will be a big announcement…

I don’t know about you but I always get keycords at like every event I go but I never use them. I have a bunch of keywords just lying around so today I decided to make a bracelet with them.

The only things you need are a keycord, cellotape, scissors and needle and thread.

Step 1: Cutting of one side at the clasp

Take your keycord at the side with the clasp and cut one one of the sides

 

Step 2: Cutting it to the right length

Cut the cord to a length about 1,5 times your wrist.

Step 3: Dividing the strands

Cut the cord into three strands with roughly the same size.

 

Step 4: Braiding

Braid the strands until it fits around your wrist. I used some cellotape to make sure it didn’t come loose.

Step 5: Sewing it shut.

Pull the strands through the other side of the clasp like this:

 

Make sure to cellotape them to each other to make the sewing easier

Then with a few stitches sew each strand together. This is how it’ll look:

Step 6: Cutting of the loose edges

Cut of the extra pieces of the strands. My keycord shredded a lot, so I had to cut of all those little strings too

Look at all the shredding!

 

And that’s it! I think it turned out quite nice and the cool thing is that you can use the clasp that is already on the keycord

Easy DIY bracelet

FullSizeRender-74

Hello everyone,

I’m back with a new post. This time I’m showing you how to make this cool DIY bracelet. It’s my own design and it’s really easy to make.

What you’ll need:

  • White crafting foam
  • Thin string
  • Two kinds of cute beads
  • A clasp (I used one for leather, it worked quite well)
  • Glue

Step 1: Cut a piece of foam with the length of your wrist circumference and the width of your clasp.

Step 2: Cut of a piece of string twice the length of your foam, fold it over and glue it to the edge of the foam like this:

You can use clothes-pegs to keep the string in place while it dries

Repeat this for the other side.

Step 3: Find some cute beads that will fit between the strings, preferably with a flat shape.

Step 4: Stick the beads to the foam with glue. I chose to place them alternately, with a little gap between every bead.

3 DIY Summer Bracelets

IMG_6207

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.

FullSizeRender-26

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.

FullSizeRender-28

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

It looks really cool, right?

Bracelet 2:

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

FullSizeRender-31

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.

FullSizeRender-35

Repeat this until the bracelet is long enough.

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

I think this one looks soo pretty!

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.

The bracelets also look really pretty combined:
