Materials you need:
- Embroidery Threads (available in all sewing / crafts department)
- Mint Green: DMC 966
- Chocolate Brown: DMC 3772
- Studs (optional)
- Tweezers for studs (optional)
Step1: Double, Triple, Quad triple your thread! If you want a chunkier look then double it as many times as you need to to create the look. The length of your bunched up thread should be approximately 1.5 to 2 times the length of your desired bracelet length. You want to leave a bit more so you can always adjust the length later. Fold one of the colored threads in half and tie a knot to create a loop. This will be the loop that locks your bracelet when you're wearing it.
Loop Color 1 (bunched up threads) through the loop of Color 2, like the image below. What you want to do is do a fishtail braid around Color 2 (in my case, the brown). To create a fishtail braid, all you need to do is to criss-cross Color 1 over Color 2. You see how the mint wraps around the brown? So you want to keep doing that, bringing the other color forward.
Step 2: When you think you have a good length, tie a knot at the bottom and your done! What I like about this is that you can create a rope like effect without actually buying a rope and you can customize the colors as well which makes it great for matching your OOTD.
Cost: $0.50 per color :) so its extremely affordable.
You can add studs to it if you like, for steps to add studs onto fabric (in this case threads) see Steps 4 and 5 from my previous post about DIY Studded Denim Shorts : here.
